"Westworld Season 3"


  

          

https://youtu.be/deSUQ7mZfWk

I might be one of the only people who liked Season 2.

With that said a whole season in the real world with Aaron Paul and Lena Waithe pulling heists and being wild disillusioned? And Kid Cudi in this marking a reunion with Aaron?!

Shit I'm all in.

The trailer hooked me but they lost me after s01. I didn't check for s02 at all. Clearly Evan Rachel Wood got out...thats where I'm at lol

you should watch the second season as more things unfold that don't involve Evan Rachel Wood's character.

I do wonder if bingeing the second season makes for a better experience since you won't have to sit around for extended time periods to sit and ponder at how silly the story lines are.

With most of the focus on Jessie Pinkman you have to figure he will be playing a big roll through the season. Ep.2 probably is more setup ass all ple players aren't shown.

Even with the slow setup there were some interesting bits with Bernard. Wondering who is in Charlotte's body and which other control units were smuggled out.

I'm in for the season

In response to Reply # 0


          

Season1
(was stellar, must see!)

Season2
(some good stuff in there, but they got too 'cute' with its presentation and seemed to be trying TOO hard 'blow yer mind' or surprise us with 'reveals', and I think the basic/main storytelling suffered because of it. Season2 is required viewing for season3 though, We ended up having to watching Season2 twice just to get the gist of things. )

Season3 (so far)
(Back to form! Its a different show than season1 for sure, but its different in a horizontal way, so I'm good with those differences. The story telling is tight and focused again, the characters and motivations are clearer and more satisfying than Season2.... and the visuals and world we're in now are really Really cool. Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wood, Thende Newton & Jeffrey Wright are ALL doing great work here (SPECIAL shout out to Tessa in this past Sundays ep tho....man she was FANTASTIC!)

so if you liked season1, but weren't a huge fan of season2...dont give up..its worth it to .jump back in on season 3!

I don't understand how the man in black/William is back. Didn't we leave him somewhere trapped for eternity at the end of S2?

Also, I know it's her character's "curse" or whatever, but if I could never see Meave killed again it would be too soon.

I was hoping the host inside Charlotte was actually Teddy. Alas.

It's also pretty dumb.

I kept asking myself if that whole car chase scene would have had anything going for it if it didn't have the genre drug angle to carry it along.

19. "Ep 6 "Decoherence""
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Far more engaging than Ep 5 "Genre", which was pointless.

I'll miss seeing "Charlotte" grow away from Dolores through bonding with her family, but we needed a catalyst so here we are. That little kid was adorable. (How did Serac's dude blow up the car? Is he a host?)

I can't believe I'm saying this, but they're making Maeve boring. A dramatic shot her body being regenerated isn't impactful because she's constantly getting killed and regenerated. It's whatever.

But at the end of the day, everything that's not about telling me what Rehoboam is actually doing is a distraction and I'd very much like them to get to the point already.

i wanted to see that tension develop, but i hope they make this loss have a real impact on the relationship

Perhaps they needed one more episode to really stick the landing there because the finale felt rushed.

The score was also boring.

Too much to set up with all the parties without a lot of payoff. I suppose The Sublime plays a huge part in the next season. But how they handled Bernard (and why even bring in Stubbs) was not good, even if it pays off next season.

How Delores copied/cloned herself over the other hosts never really was explained. So while I'm fine with Hale breaking off from Delores, how that worked (and who she was working with, Serac? Maeve?) is quite muddy. Is she going to Ultron the remaining world? Who knows

Still, I enjoyed the season if only on a surface level. I'll watch S4 to see how it plays out or ends.

24. "im out..."
In response to Reply # 0
Wed May-06-20 07:43 AM by Voodoochilde

          

after what (i thought) was a strong START....this season completely fell off for me. quite simply, i couldnt 'feel' anyones motivations...they didnt do a good enough job of telling the story in a way to get me to root for, or resent/root against, ANYones motivations. So i wasnt invested & didnt care and the whole thing just became kinda 'fake-cool' corny to me. Seemed like it was trying REALLY hard to have what they THOUGHT were 'cool scenes', but instead they came off as forced, and sometimes at the expense of logic and previous character strengths/characteristics.

the world building, set-work and special effects were all EXCELLENT though....LOVED that part of this season. Just wish the storytelling would have been solid and compelling enough to pull me in.

so yeah, i think im out for next season.

All of your problems with it are why for most of the season I was left bored and disengaged.

If I didn't enjoy those last 2 episodes as much as you did, I'd probably jump ship as well.

The show feels as if it makes up rules to govern consequences for the characters out of thin air and it's pretty hard to get too invested into the characters at this point. Assuming the ratings are high for the show, I can see the show runners and HBO wanting to continue down this meandering story telling style also, so I dunno if the next one will be the last.
