I think he means that they're exposing a lot of content in a half a season. They could have done a slower burn of revealing all that we know, it makes for a great action packed half of a season, but I wonder if the show suffers for it by, say, season 3.

Exactly my point. Sopranos is a greag example of slow burn...hell maybe even too slow!!! But it didnt rush through things. I had to give up on blindspot when 10 eps in she already is leaving the force and we find out all about her tattoos...like come on. And i love This is Us. But The manny character is soooooo rushed. Quits, bway, overcomes bway struggle in 10 eps...come come now.

Yeah, I would prefer to have seen him be unhappy a bit longer in that job, at least 7-8 episodes, then maybe start looking beyond it. Again it's great, probably the show every week I look forward to most, but I really think they could have done a bit less in terms of ground covered.

Westworld was okay. Was hoping for a lot more from the show.

I'll probably give it a go during the holidays, but everytime I flipped past it on the tube it looked boring.

Certainly so. All these nonsense episodes with Dirty Randy and Rafi are out of control.

Rafi became the star, which was bad, because he was only in 1/3 of the episodes by the last season.

Trie watching Wrecked and Angie Tribecca ln TBS, turned both off in 1st 15 min. Both were spoofy kind of comedy and it just didnt worked

Binged Search Party thought till 4am last night...what a great fn show. Slow 1st ep. Amazing season and ending.

Binged South Park latest season, eh wasnt that good at all. Last season was amazing.
