I've been watching SoA the past two weeks, and I've managed to watch the first three seasons. Season one was good, season two was even better, and season three was alright(the ending was great though). It's a great show; not quite as good as my three favorite shows(The Wire, The Sopranos, Breaking bad), but it's definitely in my top 10 now. My question is, are seasons 4 and 5 sub-par compared to the previous seasons? I watched the first episode of season 4, and it seems to be that way; and I've read online that season 4 isn't all that great. If that's the case, then it's a bit disappointing, because I really liked the first 3 seasons, despite season 3 being a bit slow.
