To twisted for my taste. For a series based on a movie about a robot hunting people, they went overboard a bit...

Some captured my attention that I'm still to watch yet, like Breaking Bad


Breaking Bad is like one of the best series ever. And that is totally not a subjective opinion.

Seriously it is excellent.


It is really good show, I'm at s04e07 currently. I highly recommend it.

I watched the pilot some months ago. It was entertaining. It is supposed to 'replace' GoT in the long run Ė as the HBO highly praised show, that is.

I'm not sure if people will follow, though. It's not your regular easy-to-grasp stuff.

Meanwhile, The Expanse seems to be going to finish the third season with the ending of the third book storyline, at last. They had to resume a lot this third book for such thing, speeding up things, 'eating up' some characters and fusing others. However, the TV public will hardly notice that. And thank God Amazon will keep it running for the next season(s).

I gave the Expanse a go and Iím in the middle of season 2 now. Itís good. Season 1 is more like a detective noir story with your typical hard-drinking-loner-anti hero cop, where as in season 2, it becomes more like Game of Thrones with planets, not in the sense that itís a copy cat with a different decor but it has a similar thematic setting, conflict and power play among the solar system, Cold War between Earth and Mars, the protomolecule creature functioning like the white walkers (the real threat to all players) and so on... Definetly worth watching.

Are we talking season 1 or 2?

I really liked Westworld season 1. It was intriguing, had great characters, and even if you were puzzled much of the time, it still gave you a feeling of making sense.

I was somewhat disappointed with season 2. I watched it through, and I really wanted to like it, but at the end I have to say I didn't find it very successful. It had some great individual parts, but overall it was way too confusing. Most of the time, I was just left completely bewildered about what was going on, there were simply too many (mild spoiler warning) different timelines going on with too little information about what was when.

I was so afraid they were going to mess up the script in season 2, but they did manage to pull it off. Which part didnt make sense to you?

(Spoiler alert)

The whole double-timeline in Westworld was completely lost on me. Some of it happened before the flooding, some of it happened after. I'm not sure if I was supposed to understand that or not until last episode, but I sure as hell didn't. The whole Hale/who is rescuing who thing was very confusing to me. Many of the things made sense once you came to last episode, but the problem was that when you had to sit through 8 episodes of general confusion, it was too little too late, and the storyline was not strong enough to hold my attention in spite of the confusion, too much slaughter and too little narrative. The whole William storyline was overall too confusing: Who was a host, and who wasn't? There were some interesting parts in the flashback scenes, but the ending to that storyline (in the bonus scene after the closing texts) still doesn't make sense to me.

Don't get me wrong, there were things I really liked. I think the Maeve storyline was generally very strong, and I really found the episode about the native dude moving, that really got back to the roots of the show with the more philosophical questions about what intelligence is. The storyline with Dolores generally had me less interested, but I did find the twists around Teddy quite gripping. It was intriguing to see the other worlds - Japan world was quite epic, and I would have liked to see more of Bengal world.

Watched Disenchantment, season one. While the series has this familiar Groening charm (and some really detailed graphics), I cannot disagree with the negative voices: it really does feel like a wasted potential. So many occasions for spoofs, yet they focus on their mediocre characters and story. The female protagonist, Bean, is a real b*tch, her attitude doesn't even make sense outside the usual "spoiled brat that needs all the attention". In short, she's unlikable. Luci is cute and all, but nothing more, and Elfo seems to be the most gag-generating one, but still could be better. Well, I don't mean it's a bad experience, only that there's room for improvement.

Finally started to watch Rick & Morty. Finished season 1. While the gags are hit & miss, what truly shines in the series are the ideas its creators have.

Also, waiting for "Paradise PD". It has "Drawn Together" humor written all over it (though unrelated). Count me in.

I have stopped watching TV frequently around 2006-2007 I believe... and I have stopped watching TV COMPLETELY around 2010-2011.

But, when I was watching TV it would always be the same every time: football (soccer, for US folks), then some discovery / animal planet stuff (those were my favorites besides football)

My favorite shows when I had watched TV have always been Seinfeld, Steve Irwin's show on Animal Planet (don't remember what it's called), Myth Busters, looney tunes (yep, cartoons, I still LOVE bugs bunny and foghorn leghorn cartoons), and football, like I've said.

I still have the entire Seinfeld show on my HDD, as well as my favorite Jackie Chan movies, which I re-watch regularly (monthly or so) when I'm in mood, but other than that there hasn't been TV for me since many years ago

Peace!

Well, with the advancement of technology and availability of everything, we now can actually choose what we want to watch.

I also only watch TV for football and occasional movie which I didn't watch and wanted to do so (and am to lazy to bother renting/watching online). Actually, nowadays TV is mostly about idiotic sing/dance or reality programs which I absolutely detest.

I only see my folks watching TV: some news or mostly gardening/travel channels. Sometimes I'll sit with them just for company. But they watch TV because they aren't quite well-versed in newer technologies (outside of Youtube). Better not tell them how easy it is to get anything on internet, but they probably wouldn't be able to do so either way, it's just too big of a generation difference.

Yeah, I've noticed that, too. Your whole life you're getting used to something, then all of a sudden a boom in technology (or whatever you got used to) and you're already overrun (not sure that this is the correct word, but couldn't think of a better one)

aren't you bothered by the commercials?? Here in Romania the last movie I've watched on TV (which was probably 15-16 years ago lol) a 90 minutes movie would last on average 130-140 minutes. By the half of the movie I would lose all interest in the movie and the TV altogether. Advertisers and TV networks in general are always crooks and cut the shows / movies RIGHT BEFORE interesting parts to - supposedly - keep you hooked and wanting to see what's going on next. Yeah, that crap didn't work for me, and I get triggered really badly by such miserable behavior. I even worked in advertising some 5-6 years ago and I've failed in being a good advertiser because I'm not made to spew snow at people in order to get their money. I'd rather die piss poor but with a clean consciousness, that using cheap tricks to steal people's money. But anyway, I digress... sorry

My question still stands, though: aren't you bothered by the commercials? For me, the online streaming and torrenting that the internet has brought are a blessing

Ofc I'm bothered. Those are so stupid that I sometimes even rage on how irritating they are. But! I didn't mention I watch movies on cable TV channels like Canal+ or HBO. Those do not have commercials in-between movies or TV series For instance I watch Game of Thrones on HBO.

No idea what cable TV is but I assume it's NOT regular TV

Also, yeah, I remember HBO. Still surprised they're still around, although I did like them back when I was watching TV. The good thing about HBO for me was that they would re-run a movie LOTS of times and at different hours, so basically I would always be able to watch a movie that I'd miss.

Actually, now that you've mentioned it I do recall to have watched quite a few good movies in the early 2000 when I was in college and didn't always have time or money to go to the cinema. I think I've watched 10-15 blockbuster type of movies on HBO in those years, and the 2 I remember clearly are ConAir, Spiderman 2, and the Batman movie with Arnie as Mr. Freeze, I don't remember its name right now. These are 3 movies that I guarantee that I've watched on HBO... oh, also a Bruce Willis movie (6th sense I think, or Unbreakable, or both of them...). Yeah... I really liked HBO. Glad to hear they're still around, although they've probably lost many viewers to internet (youtube, netflix, torrenting, etc.)

I just finished watching "Sharp Objects" on HBO. I really liked it, not surprising, as I'm a big fan of Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson. To anybody watching it, I have to say - without spoiling anything - when you come to the final episode, watch the closing texts all the way to the end - as in, ALL THE WAY to the end.
