Airplay implies you are 'pushing' the stream from iTunes to AppleTV using itunes to control the destination.
If you are doing that it is far better to use Computers on AppleTV to 'pull' the stream to AppleTV controlled by the unit itself.
Basic free and harmless things to try are restarting router, AppleTV (unpower it) and iMac/iTunes.

Yes, power cycle the ATV. Also, be sure the WiFi base station, the ATV, or your Mac are not close to any walls that may have a lot of power cables going through them, are not too far apart, etc.
As for shows and movies hitting spots where they freeze and take forever to buffer before playing again? That's a bug. I've been getting that for awhile now. I never had that problem before, and I've been using ATVs in the same location since they first came out. And I have mega fast Internet. It has to be on Apple's end.
