🔫 Westworld (rolling) 🔫


#121

yes! so i watched all of this over the past few days while i’ve been off ill. can’t say I was too impressed. looked nice, (most of) the acting was good, music was good but idk wasn’t what i was expecting i guess

thought there would be more of a mystery element to it? it just kind of trudges along.


#122

It was really shit.


#123

i mean you could say it wasn’t amazing. but really shit? c’mon buddy.


#124

I stand by it. Loads of waffley boring nonsense and that’s from a Twin Peaks fan!


#125

thought it was alright. Far from amazing, but enjoyable enough.

Prefer the film, obv.


#126

there was nothing pulling me back to it, I never felt like I absolutely had to find out what happens next or anything. don’t care about any of the characters, would quite happily never watch the next series.

but it wasn’t shit. just alright.


#127

yeah this is fair. i know what you mean about it not pulling you back in, especially in the second half. like half one is ‘ooooh i wonder what this mystery will hold under its- oh there isn’t one it’s just fine.’

mind has rejected it. we should all just watch deadwood again instead.


#130

Still don’t understand people not thinking the first season is great.

Second one will be rubbish though. First season was basically self-contained and will probably be a bit tarnished with evil dolores and all that.


#131

The finale was class, m8. Robot uprising as metaphor for a solidifying class consciousness and violent proletarian revolution.


#132

Dunno, I’m well into the idea of ten episodes of just downtrodden robots slaughtering 1%ers.


#133

Could maybe get behind that, just know that they’re gonna try make us side with the poor persecuted hoomans though


#134

should have gone with piano cover of wiki wiki wild wild west


#135

It’ll be as unengaging as the first series but I’ll probably end up watching it.

I look forward to not bothering to think about the plot because anyone who’s killed will probably turn up later as a robot.

Still, looks like this season might feature way less gratuitous boobage so that’s something.


#136

Absolutely knew that it’d be a cover of ‘Runaway’ before I even clicked the link. The original is so much better than that version that it’s scary.


#137

Westworld was one of the very few shows where the nudity was fully justified. You think Thandie Newton would be okay with getting it all out if it was just for the sake of titillation?

Probably just as many penises too btw


#138

I mean for years TV shows could show nudity with actually showing lots of nudity. But really it’s always struck me as bit false equivalence to be all “oh look, they had penises too”.

On the one hand there’s the whole let’s not be Victorian which I get but there was a whole general side to Westworld that was naturally "here is world primarily for rich men to shag expensive Real Dolls which means lots of attractive lady flesh on view. And however justified from the artistic point of view we know the guys commissioning this were likely from Weinstein side of things.


#139

Nah I don’t know that, and it doesn’t have any bearing on the product imo.

The point of the nudity wasn’t to show how much fun the guests were having or whatever, it was to dehumanise the robots, or at least show how they were dehumanised by their economic circumstances (as products rather than beings). It worked very well imo


#140

That’s… Is that going to be your take on nudity in general from now on?
