I love the first 2 seasons of Westworld, but I have to admit it was hard to follow given the series jumped around in time (not time travel)  over a 30 year period,  with no little 'dates' at the bottom of the scene jumps.

This made it hard to watch, or really follow I should say. Sometimes you didn't know one character was also another after 30 years, or that a character didn't age in 30 years because they were hosts.

The show was good and the time jumping lead to some OMG moments abd when you got that character A was also character B 30 years later it made some things understandable.

But until then it could get confusing.

Have you ever liked a show that was hard to follow?

I spent a few weeks watching SUNSET BEACH when I was at uni... every scene seemed to be some emotionally charged showdown / standoff between 2 or 3 characters who I'd never seen before and then never saw again

A show being to hard to follow is one of the things that will get me to stop watching.  I tried to follow some of those Lost clones that came out.  Aside from Surface, I gave up on a lot of them.

Well with 1st season westworld you didn't know it was time jumping until two characters were revealed as the same one 30 years apart.  Then it's like ''OH WOW!  THAT'S A MIND XXXX! ''

I used to know a perverted Russian who learned English by watching Sesame Street, so I been trying to pick up Portuguese by tuning in to a Brazilian soap opera. Can't follow what's going on at all. Drug runners trying to scam a former model? Is the model scamming them? Why'd the priest jump out the window? What's with the white dog on the beach? I'm not even sure if it's the show's title in the opening sequence or a message about Tide. Really confused. New appreciation for babies learning to talk though.

I had the same problem with Westworld, and similar with Halo and even parts of Andor. They have writing problems, e.g., in light of employing prologues or providing some sort of context before bringing in new characters, transition between scenes, etc.

Wait until the teenager girls get into convents and become nuns, the guy who died shows up again but it turns out it's his evil twin, and the character in the wheelchair miraculously starts walking again. The latter can be replaced with a blind person recovering his sight.

For me, it's House and The Sopranos: both great TV series but filled (The Sopranos especially) with very unlikable characters. Dr House is an especially vile character and I remember laughing when an ex patient shot him.  TeddyR

Also, reboots of classic TV shows like MacGyver and Magnum PI: they just didn't work. The reboot of Hawaii Five O did but these didn't.

I have never sat through more than a few minutes of Friends. I don't think it was just my reaction to its popularity and it becoming a cultural landmark, I truly found the series off-putting, even in tiny doses.

That Kardashian show. It was on a couple of times when I was in the gym. Only saw about 10 minutes of it in total, but that was more than enough.

I remember watching GAME OF THRONES when it was new and an absolute impact on mankind. The first few episodes were ok, although I was getting tired of the sex and violence, I wanted to watch a fantasy show, since it was marketed as that. In fact, the cover of the book dares to say that it's the best fantasy tale ever told.

By the second season I think, after some guy gets tortured in graphic detail for like half an hour, gets castrated, and then another guy tries to sodomize him, I asked myself: why I'm watching this garbage?

I read the books and they're worst. Boring and badly written, the author repeats the same words over and over, and everything it's pretty much filler bulls**t. You could read the first and last page of every chapter and you will understand the same. The rest is just sex and sadism.
