Too heavy on the over dramatic philosophy but it tied the William-MiB storyline together nicely, wonder if next season will be like an invasion of the park by the humans trying to take back control? I expect Harris and some of the other humans to not be killed and become essentially hostages.

Samurai World was a nice touch.


It was fine. Nice little show we got here. HOWEVA:

Are we really believing that was the real Ford that took the bullet?


I still don't know what Wyatt has to do with this.


Yes and there was no Wyatt. Only Zuul Delores.


Yeah, I understand the Wyatt/Delores thing, I guess. But I strongly disagree with you on the first part. My man came too far to go out like that.


I'm looking at it from a practical standpoint. Anthony Hopkins isn't doing a multiple season storyline arc. They may bring him back for an occasional flashback or something but otherwise, Zed's Ford's dead, baby, Zed's Ford's dead (cramming in unrelated movie references is fun).

Also, completely unrelated but I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere as a possibility:

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
Any chance that much like Bernard's dead son is based on Arnold's real dead son, could Charlotte somehow be Maeve's daughter and the computer detected her as being alive in the park? Would be a bit of a stretch but that was my first thought when Maeve was told her daughter was there.


That would be hella hot bc then that one robot totally tapped a mother daughter combo!
It feels so good to be back.

I finished it.

It's ok, I guess. I liked the naked snake lady.

It's super boring and pointless tho, and they seemingly just make it up as they go along.

I'd get on Mauve. Lucky her!

Funny if you watched WestWorld and City Slickers. Still pretty funny if you watched WestWorld and not City Slickers. If you didn't watch WestWorld don't bother.

Westworld was the shit & you are an idiot for not liking it. It had levels, man. Games within games.

I would visit a Westworld park of the Viking era where you could just go around drinking out of horns and fucking Saxon slaves.

i also enjoyed this. it's actually better on re-watch than the first time thru. i remain unconvinced of the genius of jj abrams, and see his dumb bullshit at the root of the only issues i had with the shows core mysteries unfolded.

I just watched this. I wanna talk about it now!
I'm glad I waited a year to let the hype die down and just enjoy it on its own terms, because it's a lot of fun. Let's retroactively judge some taeks:

Does anybody still believe in the genius of JJ Abrams? Not that you're wrong, of course.

You know they film seasons all at once, right?

This is pretty much the worst idea I've ever heard. Hey, why waste time with Anthony Hopkins and Jeffrey Wright when we can have some throwaway characters get into meaningless escapades!

Basically agree with what Dong and Greg said. OK.

HBO is plunking down super bowl commercial money for the season 2 trailer, first time they've ever done it for an individual show. Expected to reveal when season 2 will debut as well.

Popular internet theory is late-April. I am 90% sure that I saw it at April already through a banner on HBOGo or one of my streaming services.

April 22! Also the day of birth for my oldest child, so big day for me.




One thing about the trailer:
Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
Apparently the lesser Nolan directed it and shot footage specifically for the trailer, meaning it won't actually be in Season 2. I think thats the fake buffalo pretty clearly, it's supposed to be a metaphor.
