I forgot to write down about Westworld after its third season wrapped up the opposite week. In plenty of methods, I loved the third season more than the sooner ones — it was far more coherent, it constructed out some cool sci-fi worlds, and Aaron Paul was a terrific addition to the forged.
But the season additionally left behind what was, arguably, the factor that made Westworld tick: overly difficult and gimmicky narrative tips that go away the viewer perpetually attempting to make sense of what they’re watching.
The finest a part of Westworld’s first two seasons wasn’t even watching the present, it was speaking about it later and attempting to decipher the twists it was attempting to drag off. In plenty of methods, sure, it was very gimmicky, nevertheless it was additionally enjoyable. Westworld season three was stronger as a story for forgoing that, nevertheless it meant we had been left with simply the chaos that’s Westworld’s precise plot.
