Stronger episode than the premiere. I really liked the use of flashbacks, giving us necessary background details without feeling too much like an info dump. In the present storyline, everything was pretty riveting. In the hands of Evan Rachel Wood, everything Dolores does it riveting. I still don't care about the MiB, but his subplot was better than usual this week and that cameo was indeed great. 8.5/10
Episode 3 was terrific, and easily the best of the season to date. I loved that cold open, giving us an intriguing look into the teased parks beyond Westworld, and the big action sequence was really well done and pretty exciting. Teddy going against Dolores at the end made for a great moment that will hopefully build to a deeper conflict. Best of all, no Man in Black (next week looks like he's gonna be at the centre - yay). 9/10
Episode 4. Now that was a fantastic episode, one of the show's very best to date. Pretty much everything worked spectacularly. Even the Man in Black subplot, an arc I still don't care for overall, was awesome this week - who couldn't love watching Ed Harris go all Unforgiven? Peter Mullan was extraordinary, and his scenes throughout the episode were both fascinating and kinda sad. Bernard's side of things continue to intrigue and enthral me in equal measure. I missed Dolores and Maeve for sure, but their absence didn't stop this from being easily the highlight of the season so far. 9.5/10
WOW! the latest episode really fucked with my head haha . Loved every second of it. Brilliantly directed & great use of a Rolling Stone's song. Also Jeffrey Wright as Bernard is just superb on this show (probably my fav character)
Finally caught up with the season. The premiere was terrible but it was better from there and latest episode was insane. I cannot believe Lisa never saw LOST because that opening instantly reminded me of that. Shame Dolores has such disappointing scenes this season and Maeve's has a bizarre set up - she knows her life with her daughter was fake so what is the deal? MiB and Ed Harris' performance is still the highlight
Tonight’s episode might have been my favorite of the season thus far. I dig the hell out of Akecheta and his arc, plus the development of Lee from being just this prickly park employee to someone who actually starts to give a shot about Maeve. Almost kinda sad there’s only 2 episodes left.
Lord, they lost their way completely. The music and acting keeps me watching but they are more concerned with tricking their audience than they are with developing interesting characters and telling a good story
I was ready to write off Westworld as a failure - an interesting (and occasionally very good) show that got way too up itself and seemed to collapse in that season 2 finale. However, this does look like a lot of fun - and not as self-serious as it was before. Will probably watch.
