Critic reviews for The Bicameral Mind

The final episode of Westworld season one was a brain-frying delight

December 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's show is perhaps one of the best programs on television right now, and the finale, "The Bicameral Mind," helped illustrate why.

December 5, 2016 | Full Review…

The episode was masterfully constructed, with pieces perfectly falling into place for the uninitiated while never letting up on the action and new reveals for those already on board.

December 5, 2016 | Full Review…

The show's complicated threading of flashbacks and flash-forwards ultimately has revealed a recognizable, even familiar, design: a linear narrative beginning 35 years in the past and concluding in the finale's violent end.

Westworld might not have been a perfect show, but it kind of was? I mean, I'm a very satisfied customer.

The finale's embrace of artificiality - followed by the all-too-real deaths that ensue - speaks to the show's dedication to dancing with reality. We end Season 1... knowing more than we might expect, but there's still so much we don't really understand.
