Westworld

It's just that kind of show!  I can't wait for the next ep.  I feel like this one was a real turning point.  In the best possible way.

Anyone else really want to go on a date with Thandie Newton?

I'd like to hear Basement Jaxx on player piano, next, but they've been fairly gothic.  Maybe Bauhaus, next ep?

Thandi Newton and Evan Rachel Wood were both phenomenal in this episode. 

"Limit your emotional affect, please."

I actually shuddered at that transition.  And then, before I even have a chance to catch my breath, "Why would I want that?"

I keep thinking this show is going to talk its foot off the gas pedal and I keep being wrong. :D

Loved the use of nine inch nails this week.

+ brownie points for using "talk its foot off the gas pedal" instead of "take its foot off the gas pedal".

Damn.  Extra nudity this week.  I might have to watch this episode again when I'm less tired, try to pick up on the nuances.  I was ...uh... distracted.

I wonder what that player piano song that was playing ultra fast was after he snapped his fingers..  I might have to sample it and slow it down, see if I recognize it.

I loved the Radiohead on the player piano. I'm also worried about Elsie. And the designers of the hosts broke Jacob's first rule of robotics: never make your AI sexbots faster and stronger than people!  The Terminator is not a how-to guide!

Called out of work today from being quite sick this weekend. Didn't want to get others sick. Caught up on the last few episodes and I think it might be my favorite show of all time. I don't think Anthony Hopkins gets nearly the credit he deserves. Didn't realize Evan Rachel Wood was such a great actress. 

Also, what Dusty said..."what door?"

This show is the greatest.

Recognized House of the Rising Sun even before it was fully formed, vaguely recognized the second one, will return with answers and last week's, which I never identified.

I'm going to rewatch the entire series, I've already rewatched the pilot.

I'm saving everything beyond Ep2 for upcoming travel.  Pretty fantastic so far.

This has quickly become my favourite show on television (more so than even Mr. Robot), and is easily in my top 10 favourite of all time.

You won't be able to watch it in public, though -- there are scenes where there are swaths of nekid peoples.

Not a bad idea, Peter. I might have to start going back through them as well  

IMO there is no comparison between WW and Mr. Robot.

Agreed.  They're completely different shows, and I often espouse the weakness of having "favourites", it's an entirely hypothetical concept, as I can watch either show as my mood swings.  I'm sorry, it won't happen again.

That host that greets Will is just fantastic, I love the way she coquettishly looks down, and when he diplomatically rejects her, she brightens up as if it truly mattered naught.

My cable company politely reminded me that I had until 12/19 to finish rewatching the pilot.

I watched episode 3, "The Stray", in which there is a long conversation between Ford and Bernard.  I noticed every time Ford mentioned the hosts, Bernard kind of clammed up, and I started thinking maybe Bernard wasn't hearing that part of the conversation.  But then, later in the conversation, I was reminded that Bernard is fully aware of the hosts, since THAT'S HIS JOB, but I still wonder if they guided me through this thought process on purpose, knowing what I know now.

Just finished watching the latest episode E8, picking up my jaw off the floor slowly...  Now I'm almost afraid to see where this whole thing is going.

Too... many... spoilers... Must... not... read...

And curse you @TMoney !!! Westworld is terrific. I've never spend 2 hours per day on a series. Till Westworld, I've been watching 2 episodes per day.
