Quoted from lpeters82:
I thought this second half of a season has been great. My only complaint is that there are still too many characters. I don't know how they can totally shrink the world down, but it's not good when I don't think I could name half the characters at this point.
Good point! I agree. The show seems to be showing good improvement but I too am having problems following all the folks now floating around.
Or... maybe it's cause I fell asleep through so many of the last and first of this season..
