Plenty of interesting events, but again at a surprisingly slow pace. My girlfriend turned to me about 2/3 of the way through and said, "This is even slower than last week," and I had to agree.

Man, I'd hate to lose Eric. Definitely one of my favorites.
 

I mean no disrespect but I just got season one and I'm about 1/2 way throiugh it. I don't understand the appeal. Does the plot pick up in the second half?

I'm flabbergasted. Seriously. How can you possibly think this was slow? Maybe there's another term for what you're thinking because how anyone could possibly think the last few episodes have been slow is just... stupefying.

More has happened in the last few episodes than in the entire first series.

Honestly, I was where you are at now and didn't really see the appeal. I only kept watching because I was getting the episodes for a friend's daughter and figured I may as well watch them if I'm burning the bandwidth.

By about 4/5 through the first season, though, I was... not hooked, so much as I was curious and felt that it was entertaining enough to keep watching. The second season is where it truly explodes, though, and is when I became a fan.

I think the first season was very much about the producers, writers and actors trying to find their feet. The episodes had a very disjointed feel in terms of theme. They were jumping all over the place between horror, mystery, drama, thriller and comedy. But in the second season, they hit the ground running, successfully marrying all of the above into a seamless blend.

So... I'd recommend giving it a chance until at least about the third or fourth episode of the second season. If it hasn't grabbed you by the short and curlies by that point, then it won't ever grab you at all.

Yes, more has happened, but all of that happening occurred in about 5 minutes out of the 60. There were long, slow, mostly-pointless conversations again and again, making the whole thing drag. Not even conversations where interesting things were happening (I love it when the actor playing Russell chews the scenery, for example). I really do mean that the pacing of the episode was extremely slow: that doesn't mean nothing happened.

I am not sure slow is the right word, but I think the problem is there are several parallel storylines, and the show tends to be filled with setup of these parallel lines and then rapidly reaching a conclusion (or cliffhanger) towards the end.
