I feel about Westworld S3 similarly to how I felt about Battlestar Galactica S3; it was basically a mechanism to get us from where we were to where the writers would like to pivot the story (Westworld => Real World, Looking around for Earth => Knowing where Earth is and getting there). I’m fearful that Westworld S4… Read more
So the EMP machine was there to keep Solomon from “escaping”? How do you know if a computer mind is about to escape? Do you see him running for the doors?
I was seriously getting worried about Dog.
And perhaps best of all, they didn’t try to be needlessly confusing as they revealed things. They put forth a straight forward mystery, let it build, and then showed the answer without trying to obfuscate it. It simply let the answer be its own mystery spawning thing, rather than trying to make the veracity of the… Read more
There is a theory floating around about who’s in Hale’s body that is such a perfect Westworld twist I’m almost certain it’s true, so I’m only linking to it as an extra spoiler warning. If you want to guess, the “killer” speech she gives to the sexual predator who was targeting Nathan is a pretty solid clue. Read more
So, Charlote’s kid’s name is Nathan? Nathan HALE? As in the revolutionary war spy? That can’t be a coincidence.
Given the Nolanses apparent love for Robocop, Terminator and The Matrix, What are the odds that the show gets a massive time jump, and all of Season 4 is about showing THE WAR, from beginning to end, to… Read more
Maybe I missed this, but could someone explain to me just how Deloros ended up in her own body again? I know we are supposed to accept it’s happened, but then there was that scene last night about right after the new Hale was ‘awakened.’ We had Deloros on one sofa, the new Hale on the other, and between them on the… Read more
I will reserve my other comments for later, but one thing I’d like to ask: Isn’t this supposed to be Danai Gurira’s final season with Walking Dead? If it is, why don’t we ever see her? We barely saw her last fall, then she went on a boat with some strange guy. Did I just miss it that that was the end of her on the… Read more
Why is everyone so upset by the horse? That there was a horse there at all? That not *everything* had been burned to a crisp? That the horse was relatively clean? That Arya happened to find it? I mean, none of these things are that big a deal. I was in lower Manhattan when the towers fell down, and I will tell you… Read more
Writing is LABOR. There’s no way to just make the words appear on the page, let alone in the fashion the writer will be happy with. Without deadlines, the writer knows there are infinite changes that could be made. I know one writer with a few Pulitzers in their pocket who has burned at least two full massive… Read more
Seems odd that those who fought against the Golden Army would be expected to pay for their service.
I don’t even think the pacing changed that that much. Major plot points moved at a breakneck pace for the entire show. Danny went from “I have baby dragons” to “I’m your queen savior” in an episode or two. Two things are happening that I can think of. First, we’re off books, so people familiar with the books don’t… Read more
