You're talking about Season 3? The current season? I don't see how anyone could say it's slowing down, with all the losses and changes we've already had in just the first 5 episodes.
But I suppose everyone likes something different, and that's just fine!
(Oh, if you haven't already, check out the Season 3 Webisodes. There are 4 I believe, and they're fantastic! They're all directed by Greg Nicotero.)
