Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park -- which is looked after by robotic "hosts" -- allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial 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.Written by
When interrogating "hosts" in the repair center, Westworld technicians frequently use verbal commands derived from computer software debugging. The commands "step into" and "resume" are used to arbitrarily run specific sections of a program's source code and examine the results one at a time. See more »
Season 1 was profound, thought-provoking, gripping drama. I thought it the best TV show ever.
Season 2 was self-indulgent, complexity for complexities sake, which ultimately led nowhere. Along the way were gapping holes that I can only guess are there out of laziness and/or to lure viewers to watch former episodes in a vain attempt to fill said holes, thus trapping them in the world of the show that now exists only for its own sake, that now offers nothing of value to the viewer in exchange for their time.
Like the guests, the core drive of the show is to survive, at any cost. It will die without my viewing eyes to accompany it.
Another show that lost its way after an incredible first season.
