So... I sometimes feel like Digibrony goes off on one for no reasons, and I've never seen this series, but man does he run it down.
Yet... I have to admit certain times I've come across anime just like this. I won't say western animation is better because I've seen worst to be frank, but I find this can happen in any show regardless of if its a animation or otherwise. It first bothered me in Star Trek when I tried to like that particular show and continues to bother me to this day.
When your series has more boring episodes in it then exciting.
