The series seems to now be a total departure from the original premise but I'm oddly finding myself enjoying this season. 

Terminator meets Logan's Run with a bit of Invasion of the Body Snatchers thrown in.

The original WESTWORLD was an early Crichton musing on Chaos Theory. Many took it as merely another bad robot story, though. And thatís where the series has gone from day one, subverting the authorís intent.

Now, all pretense of being anything else has been abandoned. This is a train wreck I CAN drive by without looking.

What I find interesting about this season is that the
music changes to the environment.
The 'real world' music, however, is clearly influenced by
Blade Runner 2049 which I find very distracting.

As far as music goes, I have heard some very Terminator like music in there from time to time recently.

And I find that Evan Rachel Wood looks very Bethany from Next Men from time to time.

At least we've learned one thing from MIchael Crichton: technologically advanced theme parks are a bad idea

Whether it be with androids or dinosaurs

Season 3 is terrible, all the science fiction is gone. Each episode is more ridiculous than the last. I'm just watching it because it's only 8 episodes. Let's see how this ends tonight, but rumor has it there will be 6 seasons.

I still can't believe how they managed to throw such an entertaining original concept away. Season 3 is like an Indiana Jones movie where he is only having love affairs on a cruise.

The last episode wasn't terrible. Season 4 will probably be a bit different, hopefully a bit more interesting.

I really loved the first season. It was quickly downhill from there.

I generally enjoyed this season, especially Aaron Paul's character, but I sort of felt that all of Dolores' obfuscations regarding her plan really had no point other than to trick the audience into thinking she was the villain.
