    Which one of the two is your favorite. I enjoy them both quite a bit! Just wanted to know which one you guys like the best. They are so different, but yet so entertaining to watch.

    I think that The Crown is the objectively “better” show, but I personally like Westworld more.

    Random! Anyway, the second season of Westworld was incomprehensible and the second season of The Crown should have won Outstanding Drama Series.

    I prefer The Crown honestly if Newton left Westworld I wouldn’t bother to watch anymore.

    I did not find the second season of Westworld incomprehensible, I even liked it more than the first, but for me this is very snobbish show that thinks that it is smarter that what actually is. The philosophical dialogues are often a disguise of a very superficial themes of conclusion, in the end, the subject of the show is always the same – Have robots more humanity than humans and makes you a human being?

    So, hands down, The Crown. And Riley is correct, The Crown should have been the Drama of the year for its second season (with the permission of the sixth season of The Americans).

    I love both for very different reasons, but would definitely have to give this to the Crown, hands down. It’s had two perfect seasons and tbh, I really haven’t seen any flaws yet (that’s just me). Westworld can be convoluted, pretentious and unnecessarily complicated – I almost quit after the first few eps of S2 – but when it’s great (The Bicameral Mind, The Passenger etc), then it’s spectacular. Visually, both shows are just terrific. But I agree with Riley, why compare these two specific shows? Apart from the fact that they’re drama series, they’re diametrically opposed in nearly every aspect.

    I have seen both seasons of The Crown and only the first season of Westworld and I love them both. I have heard mixed reviews over Westworld S2, but I really enjoyed the ensemble the first season and hopefully it isn’t as bad as people say.

    The performances are still great and it has possibly the best episode of the entire show (Kiksuya) but it was very messy overall and made a lot of people lose interest.

    The Crown is less ambitious than Westworld (which isn’t really a slight considering Westworld is one of the most ambitious shows ever created) so it’s not really surprising that it has managed to be more consistent. In isolation its second season probably reached the level of a drama
    series winner, but it definitely didn’t deserve it over The Americans.

    Agree with @mafro987, as usual. I find it pretty clear that The Crown is better, in more “objective terms”: there’s not much to criticize about it, you can dissect every single episode, storyline, arc, direction and so on and still, the flaws just aren’t that many. “Competent” is probably the word I’d use to describe it.
    Westworld is infinitely more flawed, but perhaps its highs are higher than The Crown’s? I often have the impression that it could become great, perhaps stellar, and then, every time, it falls short. But I also feel that we really need this kind of ambitious tv, otherwise we’d just end up with well told and solid stories, pleasant enough to be watched. The Crown is an absolute excellence in this category – but this whole kind of category isn’t enough, for my needs as a viewer.
