Japanator: "Boring" isn't a criticism I tend to use a whole lot. For starters, I often find that stuff other viewers consider boring is still interesting to me on some level. Furthermore, the term gets used too often as a synonym for "slow-paced," but slow-paced doesn't necessarily equal "uninteresting," you know? Many slow-paced shows use their languid tempo to explore nuances that more action-oriented shows don't have time for, and I appreciate that when it's done well; sometimes, I think I appreciate the attempt to do that even when it's done badly. I'm pretty keen on slow-paced stuff, all in all."
