This show is pretty fantastic, probably my favorite Ed Harris role in the past 15 yrs easy.  Maybe since the Abyss, but that's just my personal opinion.  Also great to see McPoyle shown in a different light.   :hereitisyousentimentalbastard
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.

This show kinda came out of nowhere to me. I'm waiting for some alone time with my girlfriend before starting it, but I'm really stoked to start it. Looks and sounds awesome.

So, I got caught up on this over the last few days.  So many questions!  I assume some of the mysteries of the park itself will be kinda/sorta answered by season's end.  Like, for example, is the park some kind of hybrid of VR and a real, flesh-and-blood park?  Maybe I missed a few obvious hints as I only watched them once and binged through them all pretty quickly.  The mystery about Arnold is very intriguing as well, as is the whole maze thing and whatever this grand story is that Hopkins is working on.   

Other random thoughts:  It's good to see Jeffrey Wright in something again (I loved his character in Boardwalk Empire).  Ed Harris as the Man in Black was a fantastic choice.  I agree that he's definitely a people, but he also could be trouble down the road (I loved when he straight up threatened to murder that other guest for thanking him for his foundations' role in saving his sister's life!   :hereitisyousentimentalbastard).  And, yes, Evan Rachel Wood is hot as hell!

RE: Man in Black

What I'm not getting is why he is so obsessed with figuring out "what's going on".. 

Hopefully the show will shed more light on that
If this is love, I'm never going home..

Some very speculative spoilers here - but don't read if you don't want to analyze too much about what else may come this season... 

Anyone else picking up on the hints that Bernard is a host?  There are some random things that kind of add up - like, Ford saying he had a sensitive disposition, and that his meetings with Delores seem to take place in some sort of time or location where she thinks she is in a dream - or at least, says she thinks that - and it pretty clearly looks like a basement setting, not the main area of the labs or Westworld itself.  He is also very in-tune with those new reveries and other very minute changes in host behavior/dialogue, possibly recognizing differences in his own programming from those around him.  I've seen the discussions on Reddit about it, but it makes a lot of sense to me if that's one of the big revelations this season.

Yes, I've had suspicions about that from the beginning. This show rules.

Agreed, I think it's a strong possibility. Also, Slim, good job with the edits to not allow any spoilers!

Saw that. Fucking amazing performances from such stellar actors on this series, but this scene (and the one with both him and Ed Harris) were just masterclasses on display.

so anyone else heard this theory where this time span we are watching is three different decades? where Deloris keeps trying to be saved and fails. take that into account that my buddies and i believe that William is ed harris 30 yrs ago?  A young man who is working for a company that wants to buy a money hemorrhaging westworld, who as ford says "gets whatever he wants" and who tells Deloris in the first episode "ive been coming here for 30 yrs and you still don't remember me". I may be a little drunk but so many peices being put together. Im re watching and losing my shit.  :crazy:

Yes, yes I have heard that. 

. Lawrence immediately showing back up as El Lazo in the William story would support that theory.  [/spolier]
