Recently watched through the Hannibal tv series (recently as in, spanning from January this year to like, June) and I fuckin loved it. I didn't think I was gonna enjoy it as much as I did. The way it progresses from feeling like a typical crime drama with some odd aspects to what it eventually becomes (especially in season 3) was so neat to see unfold. There are some things about it I'm not too crazy about (some of the killers of the week, like the guy who did the mural of corpses, seemed a little out of place, plus having so many killers in general felt like it lessened the impact of characters like Dolarhyde. But, overall. Enjoyed it big time.

i watched the first two series of Westworld. i thought it was fucking brilliant. there's some parts that are a bit cliche but it's got great characters and story. it's got anthony hopkins and ed harris in it. i always remember ed harris from that movie The Rock. tacky film but the rogue general guy he played in it was fucking cool. he plays a great character in this too.

now i've watched everything they've released i'm left wanting more, so i'll just have to wait until they make the third series which could be a year or more, there's no date. i'm impatient though, it's been a long time since i've felt like this about a TV show. i'm addicted to Westworld.

honestly, watch it. it's great. then talk to me about it because god damn i need someone to talk it over with.

I need to watch Westworld, I've heard good things elsewhere too. I saw the original film, but I have a feeling that the series is only loosely related.


I watched the last couple of series of Trailer Park Boys (I'm a bit late). I need to see the rest, that was hilarious. I also decided to see what Bojack Horseman was all about. Ended up binging it and finishing it in probably less than 2 weeks... highly anticipate another series. I need my fix of grim comedy, and nothing's filling that hole currently.

yeah honestly, it's very very loosely based. i watched the original Westworld the other day actually, for comparison. i really liked the Gunslinger robot. i feel like that character was like the original Terminator.

the new Westworld is bigger and a little grim too. there are some corny parts and like i say some cliche shit but that's me trying to criticize it, it's mostly good stuff. some of the people there literally treat it like a computer game and go around killing everyone. you do it in games when you kill some guy just because they were annoying you or because they're no more use since you know it'll have no consequences, but in this place the bots look real so if someone does that it's like they've just killed a real person. it's just an interesting premise.

Yeah, he was terrifyingly relentless. I really liked that film, looking forwards to watching the series now. (completely unrelated, but I just remembered I need to finish Fargo too - loved the first series, only watched one episode of the 2nd)

I actually don't think I have, I need to watch it from the beginning. I think I did see a few episodes of the first series years ago, but I've forgot pretty much everything about them.

Do it, you'll probably enjoy it. I was sceptical when I read the synopsis, because I wondered how much I'd be able to relate to a millionaire lead, but I quickly realised the writers gave him everything he could want materially so they could really dig into the roots of his misery.

Also, consider watching Moral Orel. First series was a bit slow at points, but that just gets funnier and funnier as it becomes more and more grim.

I've been going on about Westworld since I watched both seasons for the first time about a month ago.
Season 2 definitely had a different vibe to Season 1, but they were both fantastic and very very rewatchable. Based on the premise alone you can think of lots of ways the show could progress and half the fun is just trying to figure out what's going on.

I've calmed down now but for a while I couldn't stop raving about it.

Current weekly watch is Who Is America? which everyone must have heard about by now. Love seeing fresh oc Sacha.

yeah i actually intend to rewatch them again at some point in the near future because there's still a few things i don't quite get. season 2 was different from season 1 but i really enjoyed how it panned out. SPOILERS>>> i thought the evolution of the characters Dolores and Teddy was good. eventually Dolores fucked him up by directly altering him and sort of created a frankenstein's monster. James Delos and the Man in Black are fucking great to watch too. the second season is my favourite, mainly because the hosts can actually fight back by that point, but both are great.

I assume season 3 will be a while away, so I'll rewatch them just before it comes out. With Season 2 all the mindless violence got a bit tiring but as you say, it was great to see those progressions and Delos and Man in Black. I also loved seeing the real world and that they take the hosts out! Wasn't expecting that but it makes sense.

yeah i was surprised they take the hosts out. i heard something at some point about them being fitted with an explosive in the base of the spine that goes off if they leave the park so i was confused, but maybe they can just deactivate it or something.

Well the majority of hosts weren't trying to leave the park, they were just acting as themselves with the added bonus of being able to really kill the guests. So QA were just trying to reclaim the park and capture/kill all the hosts so they can turn them back to normal.

I've been watching Spartacus on Netflix. Man, that show is utterly fantastic.

It is like Game of Thrones but with a hefty amount of cheese mixed in and with almost no pretence of trying to be arty. Its just Grade A schlock but in the most enjoyable way possible.
