Thread: HBO series: Westworld

  1. I'm just at episode 8 with Acechita and feel mostly the same way. But I don't feel the first season was so sacrosanct that doesn't warrant more. Half the stories aren't even finished their arcs. If season 3 gives us more nerd culture mash-up moments and top tier actors exploring intangible themes then I'll gladly watch.

    Lots of cool stuff happened in Shogun World that was great. I like the way this series can juxtapose while still making sense. Keeps things novel. The constant introduction to military-villain-of-the-week has been far too pedestrian for a series exploring consciousness themes. William being shot 6 times was so over the top I had to believe he was one of them too (I still don't as of this post). The idea of consciousness heaven was pretty neat too. Lots of great acting and ideas going on here. I'm glad they toned back the nudity in this season. There's a shock value and novelty to it that's great (especially in the earlier episodes last season) but it upstaged the story a bit.

    I really like all the strong or interesting women leads they have in this thing. They built the story and setting so well and aren't just shoehorned in to make a political statement. Their pain and moments feel earned.

    Anthony Hopkins plays god well -- both here and in the Thor movies.

  2. Season 2 is a great big shrug.

  3. Season 2 had so many side stories and flashbacks that it just felt like they were trying to cover too much ground, and the whole experience felt watered down because of it.

  4. look here, upon a sig graveyard.

  5. Do we care anymore? I recall defending season 2 right up to the point I stopped watching it because it was so entirely mediocre. I dont even remember if I finished it. I dont care enough to scroll up to see if I did.

  6. I'm still in. I want to see where they go with it.
