Everything is slowly coming to a head and it will have global repercussions. Having said that, I’m really enjoying season 3 even with it being very different from season 1.

In a way, season 3 had to be different because we already had another .. ShogunWorld (and another, The Raj) park on season 2.. they just couldn't (although they kind of did) come back after 2 years and be like: "here you go, yet another park.. 2 more to go!". wink

With Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy already snatched by Amazon, who knows if we'll get another season. More importantly, who would take over after they are gone?

If they are gone from the series, I would rather prefer for the series to end than to continue without them. They are unique and irreplaceable for Westworld in my opinion.

Agreed.

Changing the showrunners is the best thing for this series. Season 2 was a cluster cluck.

The viewership did indeed drop significantly during season 2 so I really can't dispute your statement but I think by now it's a moot point since I'm pretty convinced season 3 will be it. Joy and Nolan have already signed a big deal with Amazon so they'll be busy making new content for them anyway.

Yeah they went too clever too fast in Season 1 and the problem with that is you run the risk of blowing your plot potential up by doing so. They needed to spend season 2 integrating the theme park technology into the real world and build some strong human characters into the series. I haven't watched any of season 3 yet, but I suspect this is what they are sort of doing now. There's only so far you can go with that, though, before you enter "War of the Worlds" or "V" tv series zone.

I'm not sure there's much to Westworld once the cleverness is gone. I mean, it /was/ a Michael Crichton work. He was a master of thrillers, but a thriller has a well defined beginning/middle/end formula.

Without providing any spoilers I can say that unless there is some huge plot twist within the next three episodes, everything in season 3 has been building up to a final confrontation between the oppressors and the oppressed that will have far reaching global implications. That will most certainly provide the "end" for the thriller formula you speak of. smile

I like my TV series to be episodic and without requiring me to think too much, but I'm really enjoying Westworld.
This usually means that after each episode, I find a synopsis online to confirm my understanding of what I just saw.

The production values and general artistry are top notch though.
There was one episode in the second series which was centred around the Ghost Nation, so most of the dialogue was in Navajo (or whatever).
It was about halfway through when I realised that with HBO, I have to manually turn on the subtitles. smile
The acting/production was so good that subtitles weren't really needed though.

And here I thought the Hound from Game of Thrones was the most tormented tv character I’ve ever seen and then I saw Westworld tonight.... William “The Man in Black” now holds that distinction!

Isn't that what makes an intresting show - one that manages to throw you a curveball?

Oh yes, absolutely. And whether someone likes or doesn't like WW, one thing no one can say is that the show is predictable.

Westworld was simply and utterly mind blowing tonight. This is the most radical reinvention of a series I’ve ever seen.

I have no clue what we will see in season 4 but I really hope the writers find a way to bring Caleb back. Aaron Paul is just too good to let go.

I will need to watch the season 3 finale at least 2 more times so my brain can fully process what I just saw tonight.

Holy crap this was mind blowing and now I can kind of see where this show will go in season 4.

Interview here with Evan Rachel Wood. Do not read if you haven't finished season 3.
