I will watch to the end because that is how I am and I am a huge fan of the comics BUT it's not just casual fans that have stopped watching it. The writing on this show has just gotten terrible. My wife and I rewatched the first few seasons and were blown away by how much better it was. You forget if you haven't seen them in awhile. The character development is pretty much gone. There is not one person beyond the people introduced in season 1-3 or maybe 4 that I care if they live or die. I have no connection to them in any way. It's still fun and like I said I will watch but I am not going to defend it either...it's pretty bad at this point.
