Westworld vs. Walking Dead: which gets the live viewing?

One I will watch live, one will be a later viewing. Fan of both shows and typically do Westworld later as I don't have a DVR but do have other means...anyhoo

Easily Westworld. I'm a few episodes behind on Walking Dead.

Westworld.

DVR TWD and fast forward through the 30 minutes of commercials.

I'll watch Westworld tonight and DVR The Walking Dead. TWD is like watching a National Televised NFL game these days as its nonstop commercials. TWD got greedy with the commercials and people like me finally had enough, and now it's a DVR show.

Re: Westworld vs. Walking Dead: which gets the live viewing?

Westworld is the SEASON FINALE. That trumps 'just another episode' of The Walking Dead - if it was the midseason finale of Walking Dead things might be harder to pick but likely no spoiler worthy events will happen tonight on TWD but Westworld is supposed to be HUGE tonight.

Westworld it is, found a way to watch TWD later with no commercials.

Gave up on Walking Dead a while ago, and no desire to go back to it. I record Westworld and watch it when convenient.

Westworld, but on demand. Stopped watching WD last season as it got tediouser and dumber.

Don't have HBO so I don't watch Westworld. Watch The Walking Dead - usually late Sunday night or Monday morning via the DVD-R so I can fast forward through the commercials. Only watch the premiere/finale LIVE.

Neither. But we record both and watch Westworld first.

Re: Westworld vs. Walking Dead: which gets the live viewing?

I stopped watching TWD too. Tired of seeing Rick and his little buddy get stranded back on the island at the end of every season. I only posted my thoughts in TWD threads once or twice, because I don't like to thread crap.

I stopped watching mid last season. Still didn't catch up on Netflix. I figure I'll get around to it sometime. But I fell out of love with the show.

I know I'll like Westworld. But don't have HBO. Missing Ash VS Evil Dead right now too.

If you are in the West Coast, or not in the East Coast, then you probably watch Westworld near live.

I live in California, my feeds are West Coast, but HBO Go has Westworld available at 6 pm Pacific, so that's a no brainer.

Neither.

I'm going to binge Westworld later this month.

Any show that has commercials I always DVR and FF the commercials.

Re: Westworld vs. Walking Dead: which gets the live viewing?

Neither, because I can't get uninterrupted viewing time while they are on. I DVR both -- but to be fair, I can't think of anything I watch live/that's not a DVR recording at least buffered enough to commercial skip. Then I watch TWD first to warm up since it requires less focus, then Westworld.

Never ever watch live TV unless it's a sporting event. If I had to sit through the commercials for the WD I'd probably quit watching the show entirely. Way too many commercials!

I stopped watching Walking Dead at the end of last season and I haven't watched Westword, but haven't watched a show with commercials live since I bought my first DVD, a Replay unit, 16 years ago.

Like others, I don't watch anything live. That should probably be an option in the poll.
