I know what you're thinking: "Who the hell has time to watch all this stuff?"

I do. I'm retired, remember.

I watched Westworld last year, and not knowing what to expect, I did so with one eye open - not really paying attention to subtle hints and foreshadowings of what's to come. So, at the season finale, I though, "What The Hell?"

In anticipation of the new season starting in a couple of weeks, I thought I'd revisit it and rewatch the freshman season.

Wow.

Very different, knowing how some of the plot lines are revealed toward the end. I found myself looking for details, hints of the denouement, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Anyone else watch this?

(Oh yeah, violence, nudity, Ed Harris, and Anthony Hopkins!)

For me stuff like this is very much hit or miss and I find many so called hits, misses. For whatever reason I found Westworld at the top of the game. I would sit stimulated, stunned and curious during and at the end of each episode.

Knowing that "The Man in Black" is Billy, and paying attention to who does what, and when, and with which "build" of the hosts makes it SO much more fascinating, and intricate.

Did you notice that the "Westworld" logo is different for when "Billy" is at the park vs when "The Man in Black" is there.





And, of course, Delores is timeless.

I missed the logo stuff but heard about it. I am planning to redo season one as prep for season two as it has been a while. I might wait so I can binge watch.

I’m sure I’ll see a lot more in round 2 even though I paused often to review what just happened.

Just rewatched the episode with the big reveal about Bernard.

When he and Cullen go to the cottage, he explains that Ford has built this, with the "hosts" he designed. Then, she asks, "What's behind this door?"

"What door?" he asks, and he stands there with a blank look on his face

BOOM!
And this:
[+] Spoiler
When Cullen is in the hotel room where the Delos rep is having sex with host Hector, she is told by the rep that the board requires a "blood sacrifice."

When Bernard does his thing to Cullen, Ford says that she is the required "blood sacrifice."

Why would he use that term unless Hector had been listening during the conversation in the hotel room and reporting it to Ford.
I missed SO much the first time around!

Yeah, great show. So many details that it forces you to re-watch. And the actors are top notch (Thandie Newton is fearless).

I started suspecting halfway through about Billy, and even with that, I was heartbroken when it was revealed.
I wonder where the story will go and how it will end. I hope they don't ruin it by offering up a poor ending.

I'm sure! I really like the characters involved so far. Great acting. Great violence. Great story.

I'll take the Westworld thanks. Lol.

Do you watch "Silicon Valley" on HBO? Hilarious show and very appropriate of late.

I think there will be great advances in AI before I suck dirt. My tag line will never change.

My girlfriend stays with me 1 week on , 1 week off, due to her child custody situation, and as we were getting into Westworld, I also started her up on Spartacus. Well you can imagine which she chooses when we are laying down in bed at night with my Ipad. The chiseled shaven tanned bodies win every time. Lol! I don't mind, haven't seen it all in a few years now and I like how it warms her up without me even trying. ;)

Anyone see the finale this week?

Seems they went out of their way to "out Westworld Westworld" and confuse the viewers with their time-shifting narratives.

If I wanted to think that hard, and figure out what's going on that much, I'd go back to reading Heidegger.

Just tell me a story, goddammit.
