    Horrible ending. Liked season 2 more.

    I gotta watch The Leftovers and Deadwood at some point.

    My brother was really high on that show. I watched the first season but for whatever reason stopped watching it during the second. Guess I better finish it one of these days.

    I'm three episodes into Carnival Row on Amazon Prime and I really like it. It starts a little slow and you have to have the volume up loud to hear the dialogue in many parts, but ultimately, it's artsy af and has many themes that interests me e.g. the Victorian era, steampunk, fantasy, and dark.

    For never hearing of this show before it was released, I must say that I'm impressed with the graphics. While not the best, they're right up there with big budget shows like GOT. The attention to detail is remarkable. Again, it's not perfect, but done well enough you get by believing it.

    Recommend a watch.

    Those aren’t themes.

    Deadwood is one of my all time favorites. Ended very prematurely which sucked.

    On a side note, I met Kim Dickinson from that show a year ago. She was the main mother in Fear the Walking Dead as well.

    Finished the sinner. I really liked it. Intriguing to the end. They did a good job of keeping you guessing. I'm looking forward to season 2.

    I watched the first episode. John Goodman did well, as usual, but I wasn't particularly impressed with the plot. I'm not sure if I will watch any more.

    I watched Better Than Us (Netflix) over the weekend. One of my favorite themes (robots trying to be more human), full of good guys who don't trust/like each other, some really bad guys, and humans/robots just struggling with who they are. I greatly enjoyed it.

    Which just goes to show you that the Emmy's are just about the farthest thing from a barometer of quality in television.

    You know you are allowed to have opinions that disagree with the masses. Especially when the masses are just wrong.

    I didn't think the ending was that bad. It became fairly predictable but the reveals were still impactful enough to drive the story.

    It will be interesting to see how it is received by Christians. As a Christian myself, I have no problem with religious satire; it's the uptight Christians with no sense of humor that make us all look bad.

    I don't disagree. I (an atheist) just didn't find it funny nor interesting. I watched Vice Principals all the way through, but it never really paid off, and this seems the same to me.

    Thanks for the input. I also saw Vice Principals all the way through. It had good moments, but overall I felt that most of the humor was kind of "mean" instead of funny, if you know what I mean. I actually felt uncomfortable during some of the scenes. And full disclosure, South Park is my favorite show, so extreme humor is often a favorite of mine.

    There we go.

    To be fair, I'm hop'd up on drugs.
