I forgot to put in writing about Westworld after its third season wrapped up the opposite week. In a whole lot of methods, I loved the third season greater than the sooner ones — it was much more coherent, it constructed out some cool sci-fi worlds, and Aaron Paul was an ideal addition to the solid.
However the season additionally left behind what was, arguably, the factor that made Westworld tick: overly sophisticated and gimmicky narrative tips that go away the viewer perpetually making an attempt to make sense of what they’re watching.
One of the best a part of Westworld’s first two seasons wasn’t even watching the present, it was speaking about it later and making an attempt to decipher the twists it was making an attempt to drag off. In a whole lot of methods, sure, it was very gimmicky, but it surely was additionally enjoyable. Westworld season three was stronger as a story for forgoing that, but it surely meant we have been left with simply the chaos that’s Westworld’s precise plot.
