Critic Reviews for Parce Domine

Moving out of the park certainly sparked interest, as did Paul's always welcome presence, and the rest of Episode 1 got enough right to spark hope for the new season.

I enjoyed seeing a new world laid out, one with electrified clothing, designer drugs, driverless motorbikes and nightclubs that seem halfway between an orgy and an art school graduate show.

Westworld's return ensures its characters enter the human world with a renewed focus and a storyline much easier to follow.

As a first episode, it was okay. However, I do think the episode makes for a hard sell if the audience isn't already invested in the series up to this point.

Overall, Westworld succeeds in offering thought-provoking ideas about the world, its design and whether our narratives are prewritten.

So, Season Three, Episode One, of Westworld: No Man in Black, no Westworld, no Maeve, no Valleys or Forges or Cradles. And you know what? I'm good with that! Consider this a "Fuck yeah," Westworld.

When the third season, which premiered this week, taps into new energy and leaves its confusing puzzles in the past, it feels like the show is finally ready to move forward and rejuvenate its materials.

Love or hate Westworld (or love and hate Westworld), you can't deny that this Season 3 opener was a full-on reboot for the series, and I think it works tremendously well.

Major changes herald a new, hugely reinvigorated Westworld for Season 3.

A very intriguing action-packed episode that takes the show in a very new direction. The futuristic world is pretty cool.

What it achieves in elegance it loses in emotion, as none of the action scenes, so to speak, are truly exciting. [Full Review in Spanish]

This is a much more straightforward installment of Westworld than we're typically used to, which is why watching an injured Dolores pass out into Caleb's arms as one of the show's musical theme swells in the background actually feels earned.
