I've been assuming that the MiB's aim is that he wants to become a host, which is why he's constructed a character (as he explicitly says to Ford) and wants to enter the maze (which, he's continually told, is "not for him"). If… [more]

While Arnold is definitely referred to as male, I was wondering whether Wyatt might be Maeve - the only character who has explicitly gone in search of an army. Here is an army which uses her trademark sharp implements (which suggests that they… [more]

I think there's a distinction to be made between nakedness and nudity (although I'm sure the makers' intent is to a certain extent prurient). Nudity is decorous and alluring, nakedness is matter-of-fact. The nude is intended to be stared at, probably… [more]

I'm now stuck on the idea that the MiB is Ford's co-founder, who is now living inside the simulation - which is why he's basically left alone. Both he and Ford are searching for something via Westworld, quite at odds with its commercial purpose… [more]

The thing about TV now is that I find that if it's good I'm watching it in a recursive way - episode 1, then episode 1 and 2 then episode 1, 2 and 3 and so on until about episode 5 at which point it starts to take too much time. Still, this hour… [more]
