The show has seriously gone down hill in the last season.

It used to be dark and mysterious with a level of realism which hit home. Now they have bought in unrealistic characters (Shaw) which just ruins it. The good plots they had going with the odd bit of humor are now gone. Instead it now has Shaw running around trying to prove something and the main characters that people used to watch the show for being pushed to the back.

This is how adding characters just to appeal to a different demographic can completely destroy the shows direction.

It wasn’t a great show before but now its just garbage.
