    ^Evidently it’s become too complicated for many. Westworld had shed almost half of its audience, from 2 million viewing the first episode to 1.1 million by S02E06, before adding back 0.2 million in Episode 7.

    Westworld is already in my Mt. Rushmore of TV series. I was predisposed to it though, as Nolan’s Person of Interest was another favorite.

    6 episodes in, wife & I are just about to give up on Westworld. it's just become too convoluted for us. at the end of each day of our engineering / construction world, we just want to relax & enjoy our TV shows. Inception & Interstellar belong to our top favorites (even bought 4K BD's) but I guess a TV series is too much of a quantum leap for us. we have "the big bang theory" for that :)

    we're loving the man in the high castle.

    You should watch Killing Eve, a spy-assassin-noirish series that pits two femme fatales, Sandra Oh (of Grey’s Anatomy) and Jodie Comer...dark comedy, spy thriller and drama anthology together that has been renewed a second season just after its debut this May by BBC America...

    Probably one of the most emotionally engaging episodes, and the best, to grace the season 2 of westworld. It left me in tears.

    The title of the episode is Kiksyua which means Remember in Lakota.

    "Take my heart where you go".

    Damn this episode.

    I could only find the first two episodes on youtube. The rest were only previews of episodes 3 onwards. How can we view the other episodes?

    I watched it... felt that the ending had something lacking but I enjoyed the weekly wait for a new episode nevertheless

    You have to subscribe to YouTube Red. Its usually free trial for the first 30 days. I finished the whole series in a week, and promptly discontinued my subscription even before the 30 days was up.

    Remember, it's YouTube Red, not RedTube....

    I believe YouTube Red is still not locally in the available Philippines nor here in Singapore. I was also only able to watch 2 or 3 episodes.

    Same reaction. The ending had somewhat of a Star Wars Episode V feel.
    And this season's villains! Jeffcoat, Andolov, Wendy

    Impulse looks interesting. Youtube is starting to crank out quality content lately. With Apple releasing new shows and Netflix investing on more original content the only thing missing now is cheap bandwidth and this will spell the end traditional TV.

    What a finale!

    Westworld is anything but predictable...what will Season 3 offer to us after all the mayhem?

    And that post-credits scene with MIB and Emily, what did you think of that? This is what I thought of the Man In Black...

    Honestly, the season finale left me confused, but I am simply happy Teddy, Maeve's daughter, Akecheta and his family made it to the valley beyond.

    The finale, to me, felt like The Last Jedi. It could've been better, IMO.

    Nevertheless, Westworld is so thought-provoking, I still think about it days after an episode. Heck, I even fancy writing "Westworld and Philosophy" between now and the next season (2020?), but more for my 20/20 sanity. :)
