There's a flipside to Westworld's cerebral exploration of free will versus determinism - it can be cold and distancing. If nothing else, Westworld's visuals are truly a marvel to look at.

"Westworld" is finally firing on all cylinders, and hitting all the right notes.
March 23, 2020
The writers play with all the metaphorical possibilities of sex toys and punching bags gaining consciousness, and the dystopian technology-ruled future Nolan and Joy draw for us feels creepily plausible.

The star-studded premiere, "Parce Domine" breaks out all the stops, but continues to stoke some philosophical debate.

It all looks amazing, at times like Blade Runner and at others like a really expensive hotel in Dubai, but I'm constantly struggling to properly get on top of where we are, or why.

Even at its most pompous and silly, Westworld remains a thrill a second, and ironically, given that it loves a Big Question, it's best enjoyed when not thinking too deeply about the answer.

There is, however, a glimmer of hope: by the end of the fourth episode, these seemingly disparate threads come together. The show seems to have a sense of purpose it has not had since its pilot.
March 17, 2020
The fantastic spectacle merely brought into sharp relief how familiar and thin the storytelling was, how 2.0 its philosophising.

The series Westworld is changing and evolving much like the character of Deloris has. This had all the potential to flop but instead has me anxious to see what is yet to come.

It's a gorgeous Lost with robots, utter hokum and tremendously entertaining.

Still mounted with great production values and a leaner narrative, "Westworld" goes to new places just as stimulating and sharp.
March 16, 2020
We have a whole different show on our hands. This new and improved model of Westworld is more focused and easier to follow (really!), while still remaining ridiculous in all the right ways.

Westworld needed real humanity, unprogrammed and flawed, and Paul's performance is a saving grace in this respect.
March 16, 2020
The architecture and design is reason enough to tune in, but there is also the key additions of Aaron Paul and Lena Waithe to the already-strong cast of Even Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton and Ed Harris.
March 13, 2020
Westworld is always stylish, but at moments like that, it's inspired.

While the new Westworld lacks the ambition of the first two seasons, it also, mercifully, relies on fewer head-spinning plot devices and massive reveals. It's a fair trade.
March 13, 2020
The show's production remains sleek and eye-catching, however, and its ideas at least superficially intriguing, as long as the stellar cast can hold onto your attention.
March 11, 2020
This is a zanier, sillier Westworld, and much more entertaining for it.
March 11, 2020
As an action-adventure, the story has some wind at its back heading into the last four episodes. All roads lead to Dolores, it seems, and hopefully the grand showdown is an entertaining one.

This necessary reset looks great, but if the 2nd taught us anything, just watch, don't think.
