    I thought the relationship between Woody and Matthew was contrived at first, which taints their dynamic throughout the show. Also the ending was very unsatisfying. I really didn't get a proper feel for the villain. In fact, there were too many 'bad guys' who didn't get enough character development.

    The show was enjoyable but I feel like it was the exact opposite of Breaking Bad, which took its time to build up the stakes and develop the characters.

    True Detective season one is untouchable.

    Finished all of Penny Dreadful and Vikings. PD end was awful but enjoyed the rest. Vikings is epic.

    I enjoy but haven't been fully hooked on either. I finished Breaking Bad, and certainly enjoyed it, but felt it hard to really empathise with any of the characters, which made me enjoy it less.

    True Detective I enjoy but I'm not sure why I just haven't been hooked enough to really watch the whole thing yet.

    Just saw episode 6. This season has been so good.

    I am concerned though, GoT has never served the fans, and this series everything the fans have wanted is slowly coming together.

    Episode 7 and Season 8 could have some big surprises.

    I thought House of Cards was overrated and not nearly as clever as everyone makes out. I mean I don't hate it, I just don't see why everyone raves about it

    Also the defenders series, specially Daredevil and Jessica Jones, you can skip Iron Fist.

    Any big Game of Thrones fans. I've decided since we're at least a year from Season 8, every Monday I'm going to watch an episode from the start again. So by the time I catch up to where we are, Season 8 should be here.

    67 weeks should just about get me there. If I miss a Monday here and there, all the better - it'll give me grace period if they're even later with Season 8. Once I know a date, I can start speeding up closer to the release date.

    Everyone keeps raving about it - so I tried to watch the first episode and I couldn't get into it. It reminded me too much of cartoons I hate - like Bob's Burgers, Ren & Stimpy, King of the Hill etc. I always hated those for whatever reason - and thats what Rick and Morty reminded me.

    Is that just the pilot or does it get better?

    I saw season 8 would take them 2 years to finish, so, you can take your time. I wanna read the books again to be ready for winds of winter, so I have about five years before that happens.

    And Rick and Morty is awesome, I liked the first episode as much as the rest, so I don't know why you don't like it. I like Bob's burgers, so maybe it's not your type of show.

    I would say yes. It's very deep and very detailed as well as very funny. It's not just some average cartoon with fart jokes.

    That said if the pilot didn't reel you in not sure if you'll like it since the pilot more or less shows you what it's gonna be about.
