I’ve not read anything and I think I understand it perfectly well? I mean I assume parts of the Arnold storyline are supposed to remain a mystery for now (although I’ve kind of just assumed that he’s coded parts of himself into the hosts/the Westworld computer system, seems the most likely explanation for what’s happening to the hosts and I’ve not been given any cause to think differently), and apart from that there’s really not much that’s difficult to follow.
Really don’t get the apathy towards this show. Great setting, mostly very solid acting, plenty of good set-pieces, lots of carefully placed imagery, even a bit #makeuthink. It’s not, like, The Wire or Twin Peaks or anything but it’s definitely better and more fun than the likes of Breaking Bad and definitely definitely better than something like Boardwalk Empire which seemed to get far more positive reviews.
