What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

The first two seasons were wonderful. I still find myself binge-watching them. The characters were interesting and the atmosphere enjoyable. It's become a bit less compelling since then. They seem to be trying too hard to create dramatic story arcs that celebrate the characters' inability to learn from their mistakes. It stretches credulity to the point where it's frustrating to watch. Still, I'll leave the five-star rating I gave it when I first discovered it, if only because I still hope that they can get back to the fun and simplicity of the first two seasons.
