Rank #1: 210 – The Passenger

Podcast cover
Read more

Reasonable people may disagree, but for Jim and I, the finale of  HBO’s Westworld season two, “The Passenger” failed to justify an ultimately flawed and uneven 10.5 hours of television. We’re not ready to write the show off by any means, it’s too well constructed with too much talent for that. But we can’t help but think of it as a misstep that is going to justify a lot of fans decisions to give up on the show.

Rank #2: 202 – Reunion

Podcast cover
Read more

In this week's episode of HBO's Westworld, "Reunion", they add three or four timelines to play with. No big deal.  We find out more about this "Valley Beyond" or "Place of Judgment" that William and Dolores seem to be racing towards to see who can get there first. William wants to burn the place to the ground, Dolores hopes to find a powerful weapon to use against her human oppressors. Maeve is caught in between, just a woman trying to find her daughter in this crazy 'World.

This week’s episode of HBO’s Westworld, “Vanishing Point” does a excellent job of setting up next week’s finale. However, If you watched this episode purely for it’s plot mechanics you missed out on a lot of wonderful writing and acting that lead to some amazing character development for most of the main cast, revealing brand new relationships we didn’t even know were there, giving more depth to the ones we had, and utterly shattering a few more.

Rank #5: Season Two Wrap Up!

Podcast cover
Read more

Season two of Westworld is in the books. It was a bit of a rough, uneven experience for us, and we suspect from the vast amount of feedback we got this past week, a lot of you as well. But, the bones of Westworld are still sound, and the table is set for season three to be more expansive and interesting than the at time claustrophobic and confusing season two. We discuss our hopes and fears for next season, discuss some leading thought on simulations, brain scans, and AI.

In Westworld episode 204, "Riddle of the Sphinx", we're asked to consider if mortality is a core feature of humanity, or is it merely a bug to be fixed later in code? What is "good enough" when it comes to consciousness transfer?  If you can be copied and therefore replaced, does that mean you are no longer real, as Arnold stated at the outset of the season?

This week’s episode of HBO’s Westworld was truly a thing of beauty. Learning about the long and winding journey of Akecheta, exquisitely played by Zahn McClarnon, in his search for truth, meaning, and his long lost love, was as profound a watching experience as I’ve had these past few years. Along the way he unlocks his own consciousness, meets god and the devil, and learns about a path his people may take to be free forever. Will he reach The Door? What, and who, will he find there?

We discuss the dual natures of Dolores and Maeve, Bernard making a crucial discovery of what's in one Peter Abernathy's head, and try to puzzle out out what the tiger hunter has to do with the story and how she relates to the other characters.
