The TCA panel for HBO had one highlight that had many of us, who watch Westworld, kind of nodding our heads in agreement.
Westworld is not for the casual viewer.
That is an understatement. To watch this show is like being in the mafia. You have to know what you are getting yourself into, but once you are in…you are in.
Last year, was not for the faint of heart. Story lines went from what we think is the present…to the past…to the future. Even the cast could not figure out the story line.
This is not the only show that follows this maze-like story line. We see this type of story line in Legion (FX) and in Mr. Robot (USA).
These shows force the viewer to be invested. If you are like me, than you are.
We, at the TCA, also learned that only one of the Game of Thrones prequels is moving forward to the pilot stage and they will start production in 2019…aaaaaaand the final season of Game of Thrones will be airing in the first half of 2019.
The cast of Gotham is back at work for the final season of the show, that will air in 2019.
We are excited to see Bruce and Selena move forward as the infamous Caped Crusader and the Catwoman.
We did learn of the titles for the first four episodes of the season:
- Year Zero
- Penguin, Our Hero
Now, there was a comic book series titled, Batman: Year Zero. It was written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV and it lasted one year. It was also considered an origin story. How that plays in to the final season of Gotham will be interesting to see.
