    I'm not sure Westworld can keep it up season 2. It might have been best as a one season movie/miniseries.

    BTW, I LOVE these 8-12 hour "mini-series" they are doing now. Fantastic.

    Westworld way better than True Detective Season 1.

    TD was good, but it was entirely carried by the lead actors. Story was meh and it got progressively worse as the season went on.

    I've seen The Wire. I stand by my statement that it is the best show in the history of television. Season one of TD though blows it and any other single season in television history away. Cy's moronic comment about it was only the acting (I'll let it slide. Cy is in epic troll-moron mode) is so ludicrous. The cinematography, music, writing (heavily borrowed but whatevs--the themes here really helped drive this), direction...everything was freakin' superior.

    Ya I loved the first couple seasons of the wire and those seasons are probably top 5 tv for me.
    I put breaking bad above the wire though and season 1 of true detective above everything.
    I have never been more engrossed and excited to see more of a show that true detective. I watched the whole season in less than two days then told my wife about it and she relectantly watched it and she watched it about as quickly as I did and loved it just as much. (My wife doesn't like tv much at all normally but TD blew her away. )

    Yeah everything besides the last few episodes where the writing stumbled over itself and really marred the show. And the music and cinematography where all there in season 2 (the location wasnt as unique) and it sucked because the acting was mediocre (w/ some being awful) and the writing got exposed. Without the two leads in season 1 the shows is probably meh.

    I can agree that the first 30 minutes of episode 8 was shaky. You're way off on the music and cinematography of season 2 though. The music did nothing to elevate the show and create mood like it did in season 1 and the sweeping shots of freeway after freeway were overdone and completely unoriginal. Most of all, the setting just sucked though. No one cares about soulless LA and some dumbass land development deal whose "evil" motives" are nothing more than money.

    I vaguely even remember what Season 1's story-line was other than that it was kind of vapid and ended poorly. To me I remember it as a style over substance show. Just a glaring lack of ability from a writing perspective and that was only confirmed with how poorly written Season 2 was.

    Agreed. Farrell to me is just like Jude Law. Wildly underrated (Law is better overall def though imo) and for the most part, disliked by most and looked at as just some pretty boy.

    Gave Ex Machina a try based on your tastes and enjoyed it, though not as much as Rotten Tomatoes which is wwird seeing as I like AI stuff.

    This thread turned into a True Detective thread. Y'all have recommended it to me before so I'll definitely give it a try.

    As for Westworld...

    I LOVE this show so far. I hope the show keeps this up for a few seasons.
