  • I'm struggling to think of another TV show like *Westworld. *And by that I mean I can't remember another major TV show which tried to function with no main character. Delores is not a main character. She is still a robot. A robot that needed both her creators to instruct her to murder them in order for her to achieve sentience. Ignore all the philosophy and the memory games. Delores is not yet a character in the real sense of the word. We can't root her on, emotionally, because we don't really know who she is.

  • I'm still watching TV of course but nothing has blown me away recently. *Mr Robot *had a great pilot which promised a psychological thriller. But I don't think that's what its going to become. By the end of Season One it already felt like Elliot's mental state had become a plot device. His voice overs descending into Mohinder territory at times. I'm not writing the show off. I very much like the topic it's tackling. Very few shows present an alternate-present narrative where governments and businesses have to react to their plots.

    This episode was a perfect finale. Each of the 4 stories had great climactic moments, which lead into great cliffhangers and the sense that the first act of the story is over and that everything will ...

  • Aaronic on Exodus (2)
    This episode had some issues as you stated, but it was more of what made the last episode so great. First off, I agree almost wholeheartedly on Arzt, but I don't think it affected the episode for m...
