  • There was lots to like about *Stranger Things*. But it felt like an extended movie rather than a TV show. All the character beats were big and broad. The plot flew along predictably toward a happy ending. And none of that is bad. But I don't see a point in producing a season two. The story has been told. I could see this as an anthology series but would have little interest in revisiting Hawkins itself. *Atlanta *reminded me quite a bit of *Girls*.

  • I'm struggling to think of another TV show like *Westworld. *And by that I mean I can't remember another major TV show which tried to function with no main character. Delores is not a main character. She is still a robot. A robot that needed both her creators to instruct her to murder them in order for her to achieve sentience. Ignore all the philosophy and the memory games. Delores is not yet a character in the real sense of the word. We can't root her on, emotionally, because we don't really know who she is.

  • Chris on The 23rd Psalm
    I really feel the need to put in my two cents here. I felt this is a very strong episode. With a strong story of Mr. Eko and many religious references. This is the second time I am watching Lost. And ...

  • Aaronic on Adrift
    I will keep my comments here shorter and I'm going to write in more detail on my website. I agree that this episode feels like stalling and honestly there is pretty much nothing that is must-see h...
