Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic "hosts." However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park's guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.
Season 1 started slow in order to get all the characters introduced and storylines set. It got better and better as the storylines merged and all the plot lines came together so as to finish the season strong.
Season 2: OMG. What a confusing mess! Either shift between characters in current time or stay with one character and shift the time (past, near past, current). Quit doing both as that quickly becomes uneven, disjointed, confusing, long, boring, and tiring.
I gave up on watching Westworld after three episodes of season 2 and went back to watching Netflix series as they are much better written with story lines that are at least understandable.
