Season 3 of Fargo was much the same as the first two. Entertaining but unemotional. I'm a Big Lebowski fan so I enjoyed the nods but I don't need to see a Season 4.

I won't rehash all that's wrong with The Walking Dead but season seven continued all the bad trends. It even managed to reach new lows with Jadis and the trash people. Their implausible behaviour was only matched by the stupidity of Rick trusting them.

There was lots to like about Stranger Things. But it felt like an extended movie rather than a TV show. All the character beats were big and broad. The plot flew along predictably toward a happy ending. And none of that is bad. But I don't see a point in producing a season two. The story has been told. I could see this as an anthology series but would have little interest in revisiting Hawkins itself.

I'm struggling to think of another TV show like Westworld. And by that I mean I can't remember another major TV show which tried to function with no main character.

Hey,

I have moved the Game of Thrones podcast (A Pod of Casts) to Libsyn (the dedicated podcast hosting service). This means that most of the links at thetvcritic.org to those podcasts won't work.
