Westworld Season 2, aka Bernard wanders around looking flummoxed”

I’ve given it a few days but I’ve decided that I hated I’m angry with Westworld Season 2.

Bernard’s constant bewilderment aligned nicely with mine. I should have known better, given its dumb-ass messed up timeline and Lost”-like Rules, what rules?” behavior.

You just don’t get’ it!” you say. You’re right, and that’s another reason I hated it. It’s not a mystery, it’s sprawling nonsense. Go ahead, pretend it means something if you want. Pretend the What does it really mean to be human?” question is deep. I’m past that.

This is what I got out of it:

  • Bernard is confused * Dolores is mean to everyone * The Man in Black falls for the too-quiet-empty town like 12 times and somehow survives * No one can die. Or can they? * Ford has a plan, but no one knows what it is and they wouldn’t tell us if they did.

Anyway, can’t wait for Season 3.
