This hurts to say, but I thought season 3 of WW was so bad that I think I might actively try and avoid Jon Nolan/Lisa Joy produced content in the future.

I'm totally done with the show at this point.

I'd say if you liked, and followed, season 1, then the second is a natural extension & worth your watch. S2 had some amazingly beautiful episodes (the one's that centered on Shogun World & the native American Ghost World, come to mind), culminating in a finale that provides a satisfying payoff for your efforts, imo.

I just finished season 3, and I can't recommend it to anyone, sadly...

I rewatched season two and finished season three.  I can tell you exactly where they lost me:  when they reduced people to books in season two.   They backpedaled a little bit when they said free will was hard, but then they doubled down in the behind the scenes after the last episode saying that 90% are still 100% predictable and it’s only the psychos that are the “outliers”.  I’m not an outlier!  I’m far too lazy, but I’ve been thinking for myself since I was 16.  People are more complex than weather, and we know what kind of computational power that takes to predict.

That said, they do have moments of brilliance like the aforementioned Ghost Nation and Shogun World episodes as well as the episode, ‘Genre’ in the current season and the production values are always off the hook good quality, so I will probably keep watching.  But definitely tuning out all the pretentious.
