Brent: IIRC I started complaining in this thread about a dropoff in quality as early as season 5! But I'd say things got really bad in Season 7. But since I have yet to complete season 8 and even start season 9, I am hesitant to say there's not a good reason to see it through. And I recall only broad images of what happens in the final three movies. I need to see those again, too, to be able to say with any authority towards a reasoned opinion. And you'll probably get a number of differing opinions here...what with it all being subjective as to what's good and what's not. But, man...I could go on for days about those season 8 episodes I just suffered through (enumerated above!)!
