Can someone explain why I should keep watching the HBO series Westworld?

I'm like 4 episodes into it. I know it gets rave reviews and all the morning news shows say it's SOOO good! But I don't get it. It's actually kind of boring. Help me understand?

  • Because it's fucking dope. The beauty of the show is that everything comes together. There's a reason it doesn't make sense to you throug 4 episodes in a 10 episode season. Its also a show you have to pay attention to with fairly high concept themes of psychology, philosophy, religion (to some extent), ethics, etc. if you're watching it just as a show to enjoy aimlessly, you'll probably disappointed and fairly confused. You should probably watch each episode about 2x and then a rewatch once you see the finale cause it retroactively makes sense

    • It also really starts picking up real fast and coming together about episode 6 or 7

    • @Puppylove94 lol! I thought the man in the black hat was just a dude who was just trying to take over the park. We knew he was human, but I also wasn't expecting him to be who he was, although I had my suspicions and Reddit kinda ruins everything ๐Ÿ˜‘... stay away from Reddit. Also, the greatest anagram ever for Deloris Abernathy. I have to look it up, though cause it was perfect

    • Don't worry op. She didn't spoil anything, really. By the last 2-3 episodes, nearly everything you thought about the show will pretty much be flipped

  • It does get a little slow in the middle so that you can understand all the characters and their development but SOON. Soon EVERYTHING will change. It's amazing.

    Also Ramin Djawadi is the guy who did the music for Person of Interest and he does amaaaaaazing tone painting in Westworld. So good.

  • I watched the first episode. It was fine I guess but I dunno what to expect of it. What happens in the next episodes? By all means spoil, I just want to know if it's worth it.

      On December 26, ]2009,]after discussions with his family, Meyer revealed his medical scare and announced that he would resign as Florida's head coach due to health and family concerns following his team's New Years Day Sugar Bowl appearance. Meyer stated: "I have ignored my health for years, but recent developments have forced me to re-evaluate my priorities of faith and family."

      On December 27, Meyer announced that he would take an indefinite leave of absence instead of resigning. He was unsure if he would return for the 2010 season but stated that, "I do in my gut believe that will happen."

      On March 17, 2010, Meyer returned full-time to his position for the start of the Gators' spring practice and continued in that role into the 2010 season.

      On December 8, 2010 [after a 7-5 season], Meyer again announced his retirement from coaching for much the same reasons he mentioned in December 2009: his family and his health.

    • On November 22, 2011, Bill Greene of Scout. com reported that Meyer would become the head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. Meyer denied the report publicly. Meyer then asked ESPN to be taken off assignment during the weekend of the Ohio Stateโ€“Michigan game, adding more to the speculations that he might be named the next head coach of Ohio State. On November 28, WBNS Columbus, confirmed that Meyer had accepted the job as Ohio State's head football coach, and was introduced as head coach later that night.

  • Well it's based off of a old classic book that was turned into what is now a classic TV show/movie. This is more a modern remake of it.

    I personally like it, Especially like that they got the guy who played Hannibal lector to play the main guy in it.

    Also Its a show you have to pay attention to with fairly high concept themes of psychology, philosophy, religion (to some extent), ethics, etc. if you're watching it just as a show to enjoy aimlessly, you'll probably disappointed and fairly confused.

    It gets more interesting as the story progress especially when the hosts become self aware of what's actually going on, trust me it gets better.
