On the internet nobody can tell what you actually meant.

Given the following conversation:
Person A: "OMG THIS EPISODE OF THIS THING I LOVE WAS AWESOME!"
Person B: "Really? I thought it was a bit contrived/boring/silly/not up to usual standards for x/y/z/ reason..."

I would take "Really?" to mean

Really? Are you sure? You don't want to change your opinion to something less stupid do you?
