I am absolutely fascinated by this show because I don't understand why I don't love it. The cast is good/great, the scripts are solid, the show looks incredible, and it's a period piece, which I love... but something about it doesn't work for me.The Alienist is a Victorian-era show set in New York where a psychiatrist, a journalist and a police secretary hunt a serial killer. The show looks very nice and a lot of emphasis is put on the "I need to get into the mind of the killer". In the last episode the group catches up with the killer and after a fight the psychiatrist ends up on top of a water reservoir with the dying killer. The hero then asks the killer why he killed people upon which the killer promptly dies without giving an answer. I tried telling my massive blue balls that it's about "oh we'll never truly know why serial killers kill, that's the message" but my balls remained blue for a while.
So they will not have a fourth season?The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
I liked first Season (tho I skipped forward when the annoying blm chick and the tranny were on screen) but then it got so dumb I noped out.
But I must say that in this series it makes sense for so many characters to be non-straight because they are literally Satan worshipping hedonists. I liked this appproach. But the troon and the blm fatty were stupid from the start.
Thank god (heh) it's cancelled
Westworld lost me in season 2. When their solution to how a few unarmed androids were going to take on a bunch of highly trained heavily armed mercenaries was for the mercenaries to be grossly incompetent at their job for no reason, I took it as a sign that the writers weren't putting in much effort.WestWorld - season 3 became the Season of Delores God Empress and it became a slog to watch through episode 1. Plus no western so MEH
Had it's moments in Season2 with the various parks that were VERY interesting to go through, Man in Black's scenes were great. The slow burn through Bernard's memories were fun to watch.Westworld lost me in season 2.

Because they RUSHED the story from the books. The books were amazing to read and were page turners I couldn't put down. I went into the show as it had EVERYTHING but when watching it they compressed everything into the last 2 episodes that was literally half of the book and removed a huge chunk of the plot.I am absolutely fascinated by this show because I don't understand why I don't love it.

They're finally doing a second "season," so maybe I'll figure it out then. I like it a lot despite my issues with it.
If you didn't see that coming you weren't paying attention.Also the main character's completely sane sister slits the throat of the aforementioned big bad guy.
Fourth season will be the last to air on Netflix. There's some chatter of it moving to HBO Max though.So they will not have a fourth season?
It's not just that Nu-Trek has beaten people over the head with its agendas. It's that Nu-Trek completely spat on what the original shows were all about to begin with. An optimistic vision of the future where people put aside their differences to tackle problems. A future where people joined together to be part of an organization that valued intelligence and sought diplomatic solutions to conflicts. A future where people didn't take constant offense to unenlightened behavior because they had been taught not to fear words. Nu-Trek took all of that and threw it into the space latrine by filling the series' with brain-dead characters, stupid plots, unwanted revisionism, and the kind of gore and swearing that only 11 year olds would think is mature. People complained that the action-oriented Picard of the 90's movie series was a dumbed down version of the cerebral Picard of the TV series. But compared to the decrepit and reviled Picard of Nu-Trek, Movie Picard was a paragon.Star Trek Discovery can go suck the fattest of cocks. I will never forgive it for ruining a scifi classic.
It poisoned the IP for me to the point that even when I rewatch older entries I had previously enjoyed, like TNG and DS9, all I can think of is the pretentious SJW bullcrap Discovery has supplanted in place of actual writing and character drama; Things that made up the IP as a whole before that point.
Star Trek was always a liberal show, yes- But it never treated the audience with open contempt and patronization like Discovery has done, and typically allowed room for dialogue and interpretation beyond just beating the viewer over the head with agendas.
I was the same with that show. I enjoyed 1 because well you know, zombie tv show, kinda novel. But it was full of problems. One of the main issues I had with that show and why I dumped it as season 4 kicked off was its so fucking pretentious and needy. It so wants to be a deep and emotional show, about the walking dead eating people. Its the wrong fucking setting for trying to rip off Breaking Bad and its love of long drawn out scenes.Absolutely right. People talk about TWD getting worse in the later seasons, but it was always the same unevenly-written show. You just get tired after a while of accepting the shows numerous "asks," sick of the wasted characters and botched plotlines which accumulate over time, and you give up.
Completely and unironically, yes. Z Nation has ten times the creativity and, quite frankly, makes way better use of the zombie apoc setting than TWD ever did. Is it stupid and goofy? Sure. But at least it has a goal for what the tone of the show is supposed to be and actually fucking accomplishes that.Want to know a far better zombie show? Z Nation.
I stuck with Dexter to the bitter end and man, was it difficult, it was such a relief when the show finally ended.I remember thinking the first episode of the fifth season (or the first episode after he finds out his wife is dead, whichever season that is) was the best episode of the show, period. Really interesting character stuff in that one, and because it was at the beginning of the season, it could essentially ignore overarching plot.
The show is absolutely not worth finishing, though. I was on the edge of quitting it the entire time I was watching it, and the ending actually angered me... even though I had heard it was supposed to be terrible and unpopular.
It was John Lithgow, by the way
Took me couple episodes to get into it, but after that it blew TWD out of the water for me.Completely and unironically, yes.

That was when Frank Darabont was involved. The only time actual talent was in charge.I gave up on The Walking Dead after the first part of season 2. I was thinking, "damn, season 1 was so good . . ."
Muh bro. Tom Baker is the GOAT Doctor. And the only ones even near him were Pertwee, Troughton and Hartnell. Davison wasn't terrible.Doctor Who. I watched the first season of nuWho having grown up with classic Who. (Tom Baker is the best Doctor. I will fight you on this.)
