Westworld

58 posts in this topic

I just watched the first episode and was totally blown away. It was superb. That was one of the best first episodes of a show I've ever seen. This brilliantly crafted sci-fi story they created is incredibly interesting and just going by this one episode it truly feels like it's going to be my next sci-fi obsession following Lost. I can't wait to see how they peel back the layers as we find out more about this world. It was a very complex yet easy to follow story. This Jeffrey Wright guy does a great job in this show and Ed Harris is a fantastic villain. I urge to all to watch this immediately!

Yes...and unlike other trendy modern shows that try to be equal we don't see any dicks.

Equality is such an annoying trend.

Dicks on TV is an annoying trend. But what's worse...men kissing. I can deal with the dicks. Dicks are in straight porn. We all have dicks. But a show like Tyrant that shows guys kissing. It's horrible. I have to look away when watching the damn show. That shit should be outlawed on TV.

It doesn't make you a homophobe to be grossed out by two men making out.

Are your OK with 2 woman making out?If so,  I don't think your a homophobe then.

Porn sites have filters to block out gay porn. Does that mean the porn sites are homophobic?

The social justice warriors are out tonight I see.

Oh god don't go to that well. I find it impossible to believe you are so dense that you think saying that men kissing on TV should be banned is somehow not homophobic. It has nothing to do with whether you find it pleasant to look at. You think I like watching dudes make out? Shit looks gross as hell. No different from why I wouldn't want to see two obese people fucking. But I'm smart enough to know that it's a thing that happens in the world very commonly and it's not only homophobic but idiotic to make a big deal out of it when everything from hetero kissing and sex scenes to rape to decapitation to vomit and every horrible thing that somebody somewhere finds gross to look at is allowed.

And really nude scenes in shows for the sheer purpose of titillation is generally bad writing anyway. Like that Alexandra Daddario scene in True Detective, I'm glad it happened because I've gotten a lot of mileage out of it, but it's not like it added anything at all to story or characters. It served no purpose other than to get dudes off. I have no idea why you're making a big deal out of it other than you're angry because TV shows aren't be written specifically for you.

Says the guy who wrote a book to Andrew the other day after his harmless comment.

Spoken like somebody who has no argument at all and knows he said something stupid.

Obviously the ban comment was hyperbole but I said it anyways expecting that the SJW would be out in full swing.

If I go watch Stone and Parker making out in Baseketball will you forgive me?

I think you have a serious definition of what constitutes an "SJW".

Westworld was HBO’s highest-rated premiere since the good True Detective

Quote

Way back in January of 2014, HBO managed to tap into America’s fondness for misanthropic cops, frequent and unnecessary nudity, and weird murder mysteries with the first season of Nic Pizzolatto’s True Detective. The series starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as mismatched police partners named Rustin “Rust” Cohle and whatever Woody Harrelson’s character was named, and it quickly became a huge hit for the premium cable network. True Detective spawned a popular Twitter meme and a mostly forgettable second season, but the series’ great ratings will always be fondly remembered in the hearts of HBO executives.

Now, though, a newcomer has arrived to challenge True Detective’s crown. According to Variety, Sunday’s Westworld premiere was the highest-rated debut episode on HBO since True Detective, matching its total of 3.3 million viewers across cable and digital platforms. This rating is significantly higher than HBO’s last high-profile drama premiere, Vinyl, which only drew 1.4 million. Vinyl was canceled earlier this summer, so at least Westworld will probably last longer than that. Of course, we all probably thought we’d be watching new episodes of True Detective for years and years too, and that didn’t work out so well.

My brother is gay. If you are going to make a piece of shit comment, then expect to be treated like a piece of shit in return. Don't try to defend your crappy attitude with a lot of hyperbole; you said something dumb and you got called out on it. It angers me more that you don't understand why what you said was dumb, because I like to hope people can learn from their mistakes.

Dude you literally said that gay dudes should be banned from TV. That's dumb, even as a joke. Nobody here took it seriously enough to be actually angry over it, but they correctly will point out that it's a dumb thing to say. If we had a gay member, I can't imagine how they would be supposed to take it.

I didn't say that at all. I said men kissing should be banned from TV.

So you're saying that homosexual affection should not be shown on TV. Mike, the fact that you don't understand why this is a bad thing to say really worries me.
