    It was kind of wack, tbh. At least, I found the ending to be.

    But I think part of that is was still being mostly confined to the parks and dealing with the awakening. I think it can recover by going into the world and seeing if they can surive/assimilate/take over.

    I knew it would be quite different after the conclusion of last season and this is definitely quite different.

    So I heard. That's why I didn't bother. Actually come to think of it I did see a few eps I think because I remember that tiger washing up. I think the last part I saw was them getting attacked by samurais. It wasn't grabbing me like S1 though and people on here were saying meh so I gave up

    Imo, the best thing to come out of season 2 and the most intriguing thing about the show right now is the whole James Delos/human immortality storyline. And I’m pretty sure I’ve read that they aren’t going to focus on that until season 4.

    Similar to GoT, it was cinematically gorgeous and movie quality. I did think the story was hard to follow, at times

    Same. They found a dead tiger washed up, Bernard couldn't remember anything, and they were attacked by samurais. All I got

    I just remember the timelines were all fucked up, and that even at the big reveal at the end (and even after reading multiple recaps) I still didn't understand it.

    First season was so awesome. Second season went off the rails quite a bit, but still very good

    they played the host card way too fucking much

    when every major twist is this person is a host or becomes a host it shows no imagination

    Season two turned me down a bit, I was very optimistic after season 1 and now I lost interest. I will check out season 3 at some point but I am not too eager

    Season 2 had some really high points and some low points as well. Still interested to see where it's going and still better than 98% of most stuff out there.

    Feel like HBO has had this problem with a lot of shows that were bigger-than-expected hits (GOT, Westworld, True Detective) where they had a very set script for a limited content series, and as soon as they had to freehand something it all went to shit.

    I can site situations where the opposite happened also though...

    The Leftovers
    Watchmen

    both were Lindeloff shows though. I actually liked a lot of Westworld last year too. It wasn’t all bad. Also Watchmen he had written for one season with no source material about the story he was telling. I guess that could be considered the same a True Detective season one and Westworld season one depending on how you define it.

    I think Showtime has been much more consistent at finishing weakly.
