    You can't stream it on HBOGO?

    Why would I watch on a 4” screen with one speaker?

    Streaming options are also limited internationally. I'm sure your HBO Go subscription is for US only, you'd need a different subscription for watching in Europe. I ran into the same issue a few years ago when I wanted to watch something over a layover at Schipol.

    Well, one of my theories from this past week has already been verified.

    I’m still trying to process all of what was going on in that episode, but that was a real good one.

    Another slow episode, but I liked it a lot. That piano arrangement for Heart-Shaped Box is money.

    Agreed.

    Unique way to get more in depth to building up the end of the season.

    It was certainly a brilliant twist. I admit I did not see that coming at all.

    Spoiler:

    I love that we now can't "trust" any scene in which any host appears. That includes Maeve, who can also rewrite herself.

    S1 : S2 :: ontology : metaphysics :: being : reality

    I haven't thought much about this, but Maeve and Bernard have been the oscillation of S2 the way Delores and William were S1. Maeve has been about all the broad implications of the themes, while Bernard has been about the intimate and personal implications.

    I also hadn't thought about the implications of Maeve's name (Ma - Eve, mother of one/all) until this episode.

    It is extremely interesting that the show keeps thwarting, sometimes violently, any juxtaposition of Maeve and Delores. It would be easy, after all: you could rename Schopenhauer's "The World as Will and Representation" and "The World as Delores and Maeve." It is interesting that the writers are so adamantly opposed to us thinking about that, because it would be a pretty neat and internally consistent idea, but maybe not as fertile.

    Quiet, but not slow. It was breakneck pace as far as the development of the ideas of the show are concerned.

    Re: Westworld Season II: The Puppet Show is Over

    Am still in awe of this show overall but I’m fearful the more I watch subsequent episodes that I find it harder to suspend belief. However I witnessed possibly my favorite line in the history of television when Akecheta responded to William after being asked why not just let him die: “Death is a passage from this brutal world. You don't deserve that exit”. Just brilliant.

    btw I don't know if I've ever seen Julia Jones before (Kohana) but she's absolutely stunning.

    Re: Westworld Season II: The Puppet Show is Over

    Westworld continues to deliver some of the most memorable (not for shock but awe) lines I can recall in a very long time. Obviously context matters and in the matter of the first it was clearly borrowed but:

    - “When Alexander was told there were infinite worlds, he wept. For he had yet to become the lord of even one.”

    -“I used to think you were the only one not faking it. It turns out you’re the only one any good at faking it.”
    What an eloquent condemnation of the stubbornness in so many men - myself included. That we're so wrapped up in getting to the top without looking back to see who and what we left behind trying to get there? Just brilliant.

    Re: Westworld Season II: The Puppet Show is Over

    Season 2 really became a mess as it went on. There were strong and weak arcs, but overall... no, I'm not really buying it.

    I find myself not wanting it to come back. It will, and maybe they'll pull it back together. But whereas the show is at its best when it explores big ideas using small, deft touches, the second half of S2 really inverted that -- much ado about nothing.

    They've built up enough good will to deserve continued watching, though.

    Re: Westworld Season II: The Puppet Show is Over

    Wow. I couldn't disagree more. S2 has completely outperformed S1 on many levels. I was worried at the beginning that they'd bite off more than they could chew, go too big, fall into so many traps of previous series that try too hard to live up to expectations, but they reigned it in for the most part. I haven't watched E10 but if 1-9 are any indication I won't be disappointed.
