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.

This is the same series that spends too long on setup without sufficient delivery, one that prizes cool fights over reasons behind them. More often than not, the series is as soulless and hollow as the corrupt theme park it portrays.

I think it was a smart decision to extract a big chunk of the show from Westworld itself, and I am already engaged with these new mysteries.

Westworld season 3's first episode isn't perfect, but it's off to a better start than season 2.

As a whole, I liked this first hour even if it was a slightly scary look at where we might be heading as a society if we continue to let algorithms dictate our life.

This is still a damn good story with a very talented cast. I just hope that this episode is easing us into something a bit more challenging than what this premiere lays out.

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.

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

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.
