The state senate where I live is talking about passing a bill that will make it easier for judges to reduce fines or allow time to pay it. Meanwhile, some counties have tech that allows police to identify people with outstanding fines/warrants, and process a credit card payment on the spot. Of course, when you can’t…
I know they’ve been hyping the “Rick’s last episode” thing for a while, but it felt like it was a last minute decision to make the movies. They spent an hour with Rick bleeding out and dying, only to save him in the last five minutes. Maybe they couldbn’t get a contract settled or something, I dunno. Either way, it…
When Tammy was waiting to see Earl, it caught my attention when she said she has rights. Rights according to who or what? It’s not like she can call up the ACLU or someone to complain.
At the end, didn’t Eugene tell the Alexandrians that he sabotaged the bullets? They would have known not to use any more of them.
Maeve can’t control the older hosts? She had to coax Lawrence into waking up and turning on the MiB. She had to ask Ake to watch over her daughter, instead of just making it his primary drive. Good luck on anyone making Delores do anything, either. If Charlotte thinks she can use Maeve to regain control of the park,…
If Hale and the others can make Bernard go into analysis mode, answer questions, and bring up memories, why did they do the waterboarding/torture scene? Unless they just felt like being needlessly cruel, it seemed a little over the top.
This is something I wondered about, too. Not just the heart thing, but also not bothering to wash the blood and gore off of your hands or out of your hair?
To be fair, is anyone actually buried in Westworld? The hosts get cleaned up and sent back out. No one really died there until recently, except Arnold. I don’t think it mentioned what happened to his body.
The Dark Tower books seem to be divisive in the King fandom. If you enjoyed them, I’d recommend Eyes of the Dragon, too. The Talisman is another one. I like his early works, like Carrie, The Dead Zone, or Pet Sematary.
Angela Sarafyan needs some recognition for that scene where Old Clementine meets New Clementine. Considering how expressionless and dead-eyed OC has been, the stricken look she had on her face while watching NC was heart-wrenching.
I thought it was meant to be terrible to highlight how the security team still thinks they are dealing with the hosts who are programmed not to hurt humans. Sure, they were called in to save the guests and workers, but now that they have seen the renegade hosts in action, they realize the stakes are real.
Wasn’t there a very brief scene in season 1 where Maeve, as the saloon madame, was speaking Japanese with some park guests? I think it was only a few words, but she might have a leg up on it already.
I thought it was interesting that all the non-human robots were still acting as they should, without being aggressive to the guests. The wolves and the vulture ignored the humans, and the horses behaved like you’d expect. The buffalo did act up a little towards Sizemore, but if it had intended to hurt him it could…
Margot still has that disguised fairy eye. It’s either going to help her remember magic, or drive her insane. Didn’t Josh pick up the STD lycanthropy? The first full moon might become interesting for the poor guy.
When Eugene snapped at the wife, I read it as he did not want her to pitch in and help. The more help he has, the faster bullets get made. I think he will make the bullets as ordered, because he’s afraid not to, but he was hoping to drag it out as long as possible. Maybe he could have bought the hilltop a little more…
Am I the only one who got irritated with Katie? I mean, I get that she’s been having a rough go of things. Maybe taking it all out on Penny isn’t the best thing to do, though.
Gavin is the most reluctant Savior there is. “Don’t make me count to three! One... two... two and a half... two and three-quarters...”
I hope that we get a confrontation between Tara and Eugene at some point. They had gotten close, so I want to see him look her in the eyes and say they were nothing more than traveling companions.
Did Robert know that Lyanna ran off to get married? Or was he so arrogant and/or in love that he figured she would never leave him? Was there a Littlefinger Senior behind the scenes, pulling Robert’s strings?
I cannot disagree with any of these points, but one thing I was shocked they left out was the Beams. “All things serve the Beam.” What about the guardians? How does Roland know which way to go, since it isn’t like compasses work in his world? Following the path of the Beam is what leads them into about 80% of their…
