How can you really predict that an ending will be trash after the first episode?

If we're talking Lindelof, he is credited with the endings of both Lost and The Leftovers. One is mostly considered a tragic failure, while the other is looked at as one of the best shows on television in the last decade or so.

Not surprised this is coming from you, you're skeptical of everything it seems. :lol:

Outside of Thrones, what is this history of bad endings that HBO has?

I mean, if you go into it like that there's no reason to watch.

I'm less worried about the final episode of a show. It's all about the ride there for me. Westworld could have the best close ever, but will it matter if the quality of the writing continues to get worse with every season?

I didn't watch 80% of what you listed. Maybe also be a better judge. Ballers? Come on, man. :lol:

I had nothing to watch since probably Thrones. Now it seems like everything is coming back, and I don't have enough time.

Between Watchmen, Mr. Robot and Castle Rock I'm cool. I'm sure there's going to be a bunch of stuff dropping on Netflix in the next few months too.

SO this is if there was retribution for the Black Wallstreet massacre and also reparations being paid?
Robert Redford as president in that Presidents poster in the classroom.

Redfordations.

Feels a lot like that 'if slavery continued' show that D&D wanted to do, just less of an alt right dream.

It's gonna take some time to learn the nuances of this universe. I should go back to the comic to get more context around how things lead to where the show is.

Plus Jack Ryan coming back :pimp:

I see Jack Ryan ads constantly, I just can't see Jim as an action star. Never was a fan of action TV shows either honestly. **** like 24 never really grabbed my attention.

How's Hanna? I say this every time this discussion comes up, but there's just too much that drops everyday. Certain shows I just decide I'm not going to watch from a quick glance. :lol:

Didn’t Nora get into some machine in the last episode
That took her to where the “departed” went :lol: man that **** was trash
Think of The Leftovers and the antiLost, they went in with the specific concept of a character driven drama and no expectation of explanation on the main event. The attempts to do so are simply MacGuffins and a means to drive the plot towards the ultimate character resolution in the end.

:pimp:

Coming from Lindelof, you had to take this song as him speaking directly to viewers after he failed with Lost in most people's eyes. It was less about the actual occurance, and all about the characters. That's what I loved so much. Even episodes like International Assassin and The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother), while it was basically all action, was all an inner journey for Kevin Garvey.

He found a way to again tell a convoluted story with no real answer, this time without letting down most people watching.

That's why I'm so interested in how Watchmen turns out after watching him stuble with Lost, and get it together with The Leftovers. It'll be interesting to see how he approaches telling this story since Watchmen is another one that's open for A LOT of interpretation.
