    Finally decide to watch the second season of Westworld. I wasn't a big fan of the first season, so I'm not really sure why I even watched it. There were some interesting things in the second season that made me like the series as a whole better, and a couple episodes were brilliant. But the show as a whole really is a complete mess. The showrunners (Jonathan Nolan (brother of Chris) and his wife Lisa Joy) intentionally try to confuse the audience and it makes everything incoherent. I don't mind shows that make you think, but I really see no point to the type of mind-fucking they like to employ.

    The new nature series Serengeti on Discovery Channel, first episode was really good I thought.

    I'm seven episodes through season 2, and although it definitely requires some thought, I don't think it is overly complicated. I like it as much as, if not more than, season 1.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    can the thread title be changed to reflect it is almost the year of the optometrist!

    Just finished Succession season 1. My favorite show in a long time. Haven't stared S2 yet, as I'm worried it can only go downhill

    LOVE the Logan Roy character. Took me awhile to figure out he was the villainous Treadstone/Black Brier director in the first two Bourne movies.

    The Righteous Gemstones, the latest HBO comedy from Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down; Vice Principals), is hilarious. Best show McBride has done yet.

    The Righteous Gemstones is hilarious. Judy is just crazy. The exchange about her moving to Malibu and shaving her pussy was the best moment so far in the show.

    I'm glad you are not going to watch it. Since you will not be watching the show and to not ruin it for anyone else, here is why Judy was planning on shaving.

    Spoiler for Shaving:
    So she can surf faster when she moves to Malibu

    It was so funny.

    Spoiler for Gemstones:
    Kelvin's reaction when Keefe came out of the house without his pants on was also hilarious.

    Keefe cracks me up. He's my favorite character.

    Succession season 2 probably deserves its own thread. Season finale didn’t disappoint. Love this serious.

    I didn't start watching the series until a few weeks ago, but I'm now caught up and last night's season finale was great. I'm fascinated by Brian Cox's very subtle change in facial expression in the final scene. Many of the characters are absurdly evil, and the language is at times unnecessarily crude, but it's a very entertaining and well-done show.

    Gemstones is great. The way the actor playing Judy Gemstone is killing it in a male dominated show reminds me of Kirsten Dunst in Fargo.

    Yup Succession is so awesome.

    Kieran Culkin cracks me up multiple times per show ó such a great character.

    The Tom and Greg duo is hilarious. The Tom and Shiv marriage is sad.

    Mo money mo problems!
