good lord. this show was a year ago already. doesn't seem that old
Westworld premieres tonight @9pm.
What that black tar in the intro in season one intros also?
Between this and silicon valley I like Sundays again.
They could really use some robot janitors.
I thought Bernard died?
Solid start & story getting deeper. Can't wait to see more.
Didn't expect to pick up right where we left off. Still confused, need another watch. But the DNA thing is interesting
They're copying guests, for...? Infiltrating society, mayhaps? Bernard had to be DNA-tested to get into that room, so he probably has Arnold's actual DNA? What was the flood? Repercussions of Ford's "new" settlement I guess?

- That room doesn't make sense. What if she'd gone by herself, or three people need to get in?i_monk
- ^@i_monk. Dragons don't make sense either.teh
- LOL @tehhelloeatbreathedrive
- Dragons can be explained with magic. Nobody would build a door/room that can only be opened by 2 and only 2 people.i_monk
Big props on this episodes sound design.
What the fuck was going on? The opening scene with Bernard and Delores talking about what is real was fantastic but after that it was a mass of confusion.
They're going to be doing that timeline shit on us again.
If they can capture people's memories through DNA, they could easily be using the parks for industrial and governmental espionage.
What did Bernard inject in his neck?
Teddy floating = 2 timelines again?
I'm kind of falling off the wagon in terms of interest. The timeline thing isn't necessary beyond hiding plot twists. The lines given to the characters does very little to show development beyond "did the chick character level up her badass meter".
What this creates is a sense of floating disjointedness in a sea of overly erudite dialogue. I hate to say it, but I kind of feel that this is becoming *too* character driven. The speculative elements and what they say about humanity contrasted to it's creation are getting a little overshadowed.
The motivations and goals for characters are too vague to be relatable. The first series was the "map" (which is still unexplained). This series it seems the vague goal is the "valley beyond" which is a "weapon". Not only is this meaningless to me the viewer as a specific thing, it is meaningless to me as a symbol. So what that creates is a whole lot of characters realizing shit that falls flat for me. The only sparks that seem to fly are when characters interact with each other and prove each other wrong or right or show each other something. Beyond that, I'm finding it hard to care.
The spectacle is withheld too. Indians. Samurai. Robot buffalo on a rampage. None of this has happened. The visual feasting is teased and then bait-and switched for screenwriting wankery.
- It's only a freakin tv show. Well said man ditto.helloeatbreathedrive

- Yea. I'm kind of struggling with this show. It kind of makes me feel stupid. Something isn't right.Hayzilla
- The timelines aren't helping and the cryptic, mumbled, 'profound' dialogue makes it hard to follow.Hayzilla
- None of the characters are likeable/relatable apart from maybe William.Hayzilla
- The over arching questioning of how a theme park could even possibly run gets me. I know it's TV but I find myself constantly not believing the feasibility.Hayzilla
- Things started to make sense after the 3-4 episode in season 1... :) watch the episodes again, it will work :)sted
- I've watched them. They make sense. They are just meaningless.cannonball1978
- i was in it for Hopkins only, the rest is just filler.helloeatbreathedrive
Watched it, thought it was shit, thought it was a good idea to come here and report that it was shit
