Westworld Season 3 Episode 5 – Genre: No Seriously, This Show Fucking Sucks

5 episodes into the third season of Westworld and it is very clear that this is the worst hour of TV every week that I cannot stop watching. As much as I shit on this program for their decision to choose mystery box cliffhangers and presenting questions while forcing the audience to theorize online and amongst friends as they ignore the fact that there is no real plot or storyline.

So bravo to Christopher Nolan’s brother for tricking viewers into thinking they’re watching smart television because it airs on HBO and they get to feel intelligent by solving dumb riddles every week.

There is no better example of how pointless Westword’s little mysteries are than the ‘big’ reveal of the last episode that all of the hosts that Dolores built were actually copies of…Dolores. Here’s the problem with that moment: it doesn’t fucking matter.

It didn’t change any of the events of this week’s episode. The Scottish bodyguard that turned out to be a copy of Dolores blew himself up. Did it even matter that he was Dolores? Did it change anything about anything he did in this episode?

No.

We rush back every week to see who is Charlotte Hale. Then we find out and it doesn’t matter but we’re not thinking about how stupid that plot point is because we’re instantly given another mystery to solve: who is Caleb?

Towards the end of an episode in which Aaron Paul does ‘genre’—a party drug that gives you five different ‘acts’ during your trip—Liam Dempsey Jr, wearing his cartoony stupid ‘Basic’ t-shirt, alludes to Caleb having a questionable past and that his army days may have been darker than just hanging out with Kid Cudi every day.

Now we’re all scrambling to guess if Caleb is secretly a host or what evil shit he did in the war instead of paying attention to those flashbacks of Serac absolutely obliterating the timeline. They showed Liam Dempsey Jr. as a kid when young Serac—who looked maybe 25 years old—and his brother, were creating the Insight program.

Dempsey Jr. was probably, what? 10 years old? And Serac looked 25. So fast forward to present day and how old is Liam Dempsey Jr? 32? Why is Vincent Cassell a graying elderly man in this season?

But shhh don’t pay attention to that. Focus on the Genre drug that was used as a tool to make generic action sequences slightly more watchable.

This show stinks. Just give me a Marshawn Lynch spin-off series or stop making new episodes altogether.

And real quick, what was Dolores’s master plan? To send a mass snapchat to everyone showing them all their recorded data and how they’re going to die? Cool. Done. Check it off the list. Now what?

There. Isn’t. A. Plot.

Fuck Westworld.
