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.
