Westworld: Season 3 Reviews

April 7, 2020
For a show that regularly displays breathtaking technical mastery, and pairs it with so many compelling, laudable performances, there's an inescapable feeling of emptiness accompanying every shocking death or big plot reveal on Westworld.

The nagging sense watching Westworld now is that the first season was, in hindsight, as good as it's going to get, and once it reached the center of the maze, there was no obvious path left to follow.

It's the most frustratingly not-quite-there show on TV: structurally bold, visually arresting, often brilliantly acted, show-off-ily erudite... and woefully predisposed to turn subtext into text.

Like Maeve says, none of it matters, because none of it feels real... As a result, everything looks cool, but rings hollow.

I just miss the old Westworld, really: an imperfect but sweeping series with a shivery kind of poetry at its heart. That lyricism, the show's philosophical murmur, is largely drowned out in Season 3.

It's a beautifully shot show, featuring some of TV's most ambitious special effects, but you could take nearly every dialogue-lite scene and turn it into a commercial for perfume or some luxury automobile.

My main feeling is I really enjoyed the show about cowboy robots in a theme park that apparently ended years ago.

Westworld wants to generate another existential conversation in Season 3, but even as the show swaps settings and introduces new faces, the details that make it come to life are perfunctory.
