SEASON 8 
Alas, Season 8 is when my interest in the series began to wane, mostly due to the bone-headed decision to needlessly kill off a major character (who's still alive in the comic) just for shock value. If you're still invested in the show, then more power to you, but I bowed out sometime before the end of the season.
