Well said. I've had a false start with this show, but also with Twin Peaks and Mad Men. Simply because it didn't compute with anything in my mental "library" of things that I already knew and liked or disliked.All opinions can expand our understanding of these shows and characters
It isn't so much about changing one's opinion but about expanding one's mental library, to find a place in it for an additional "standard", so to speak.
Sometimes it's a natural process, like putting your thoughts into words (e.g. episode reviews like these) which is basically having a conversation with yourself, and sometimes it's the insight of other forum members that helps speeding up that process.
And sometimes you just have to accept that it's not going to work. I've lost count of how many times I've given CWDynasty the benefit of the doubt, desperately exploring different angles that would make it enjoyable to watch. The only thing I've learned from that show is that even my mental library has its limits.
