What’s it about

[HBO] In the wake of the Season 1 uprising by the android hosts of ‘Westworld,’ the fates of the hosts and humans in the park will be revealed.

There have been some good moments in Westworld season 2.

I liked the introduction of Grace (Emily), and the revelations about the world the park (or parks) exist in. I liked the reveal about James Delos; he’s actually one of the more interesting characters now, and I hope he’ll return and be explored further.

There have also been some bad moments (though WW’s fiercest defenders will deny that it’s possible for the show to ever be bad — their mantra is that if an episode gets bad reviews, the fault is with the reviewers. Episode 5, for example, didn’t gel. The writing, directing, and editing seemed weak and unfocused. It felt disjointed, like checking in on several different characters at random, without a strong dramatic or emotional arc to unify their storylines. Some storylines didn’t move forward at all. The notion of Samurai World as a carbon copy of parts of Westworld felt well intentioned, but in the end came across as lazy. The writers had an opportunity to introduce some compelling new characters; instead we got copies of characters and relationships and storylines from season 1. Realistic or not, clever or not, the net effect for me was not engaging.

In season 1, it was easy to care about and feel involved with some characters (such as Dolores). In season 2, her journey of self discovery seems to have led her to an existence without a moral center. This is fine in a sense… it’s perhaps realistic, and the writers are free to take her wherever they want…… but they need to remember that viewers will tend to drift away if the characters are totally unsympathetic. It helps to have someone to relate to, and feel a connection with. Dolores was that someone in season 1; there really isn’t a clear relatable person for viewers to identify with this time around.

So, I agree with those who find this season a little soggy so far. Still I’m finding it fun to watch.
