Really pleasantly surprised with this show. I thought it would be good to pretty good at best, it's been great. Can't wait to see the rest of the season.

Bit of a slow burn but gets better each episode. I liked it much better when I accepted that it's more of a mystery than an action adventure. Highly recommended.

Lili Simmons is the new Clementine. I've started saving up for my ticket.

Are we going to have spoilers in this thread? Fan theories? IMO it's pretty hard to discuss without spoilers.

Unfortunately it's only for 1 episode. You'll have to pull out your copy of Banshee to get your fix lol.

Finally got to finish this season. Absolutely loved it! Its on par with Mr. Robot. Cant wait to see the next season in 2018 and to start reading reddit theories, etc. The show left so many questions.

There aren't any real stakes to the series b/c it's a bunch of exposition. They'd rather tell than show. It was all plot and the twists were not very clever since the audience saw them coming. (Robot had a similar issue with telegraphing twists but at least the audience cared about the characters)

Basically the first season got us to the point where the original show starts which is with the machines revolting. S2 could be good since a lot of the characters from S1 are gone and the storyline has the chance to go anywhere. However, Joy and Nolan have not shown themselves to be capable TV storytellers.

Just curious, but do you like any shows? Every post in a TV thread is critical.

Truth. Imo you had to look at it sort of like a mystery. If you were looking for it to be like the movie then I could see you being disappointed. I'm glad I'm a dumbass because that allows me to enjoy many more shows.

New shows or classics?

Newer shows/Miniseries -

Mr Robot
The Knick
The Americans
Fargo (especially season 2)
Atlanta - hands down the best show on TV last year
Stranger Things
The Night of
The People vs OJ

Classics-

The Wire
Breaking Bad
Mad Men
Game of Thrones
Deadwood - I know that a lot of people were not fans of the show but I loved season 2

I'm giving Taboo and The Young Pope a shot right now and have liked both so far.
