Even Westworld Season 1 kind of sucked. The plot was interesting, but they forgot to change up tone. People love shows like Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones because of the variety between scenes, which helps you connect with characters. One scene you're worried Tyrion may die, the next you're laughing as he's snarking off to someone. They had intense, heavy scenes, but balanced them with light scenes that served no real purpose other than to give you another side of a character or make you smile with them.
Westworld didn't have this. Every scene, every line, was intense and heavy. Misery and torture. You never saw anyone relax or take a single moment of joy. It made each hour feel very long.
It would have been an all-time great had they not done that.
