westworld seasons

HBO recently gave Westworld season 4 a green light, and when word of that renewal broke, it came with a rumor. That rumor stated that behind-the-scenes, showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy were planning for six seasons total. But now we’ve learned that’s not true. Nolan and Joy say they’ve never actually discussed how many seasons they want to do, because circumstances can always change.

westworld crisis theory review

Westworld season 3 is over, and while it might be a controversial stance, let’s call this the worst season of the series yet. Yes, there were plenty of valid complaints about season 2. But even at its worse, season 2 was at least mildly interesting. The same can not be said of season 3, which managed to make non-stop action and full-blown societal chaos boring. So let’s see what happened on Westworld season 3 this week.

We’re in the endgame now, people. There’s only one more episode of Westworld season 3 left, and I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for the end.

westworld season 4

HBO is sticking with Westworld. The sci-fi series just got itself a fourth season from the network, which is currently in the process of airing season 3. Two more episodes remain in this current season, and, like season 3, Westworld season 4 will consist of 8 episodes. And, like season 3, it will probably be filled with all sorts of confusing twists and turns, and scenes of characters delivering ominous monologues about free will.

westworld Decoherence review

There are only two more episodes of Westworld season 3 left after this ep, and honestly…I’m ready to pull the plug. I won’t, of course – I’ll still be reviewing the final two episodes. But after this latest adventure into Westworld, “Decoherence”, I can confidently say that Westworld season 3 is a wash. In fact, I might even argue that the much-derided season 2 is better than what’s on display this year. In short, it might be time for Westworld to go offline, permanently. But first, let’s take a look at what happened this week on Westworld season 3.

westworld genre review

It’s been said again and again that Westworld season 3 is an attempt at rebooting the show. An attempt to make up for the disappointing second season while cutting to the chase. The episodes themselves have sort of attempted this, but the latest ep, “Genre,” is the most frustrating entry to date. Because there are some big, bold, fascinating ideas here. But they’re all laid out with no real artistry. The end result is oddly inert, which is weird since there’s a ton of action in this episode, and Dolores literally succeeds at changing the entire world. So what is everything still so…boring? Let’s take a look at what happened this week on Westworld season 3, “Genre.”
