Conceptually, Westworld (we reckon) is one of the best TV shows around. We were most captivated by it in S1 with S2 we felt was lacking a bit and consequently we gave up on midway through. It’s back for another season and we’re going to make an effort to catch up on the remaining episodes we missed. Why? Well anything from HBO is enough to have us hooked generally, and second, the latest season looks absolutely fantastic, the trailer alone is enough to convince us:
The hit HBO series is generally a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
Returning cast members include Golden Globe nominee Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores, Emmy winner Thandie Newton as Maeve, Oscar nominee Ed Harris as Man in Black, Golden Globe winner Jeffrey Wright as Bernard, People’s Choice nominee Tessa Thompson as Charlotte, and Screen Actors Guild nominees Luke Hemsworth as Stubbs and Rodrigo Santoro as Hector Escaton.
New faces this season include Golden Globe nominee Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Emmy winner Lena Waithe (Master of None, A Black Lady Sketch Show), Vincent Cassel (Black Swan), Lena Waithe (A Black Lady Sketch Show, Master of None), Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi), Marshawn Lynch (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom), Michael Ealy (Stumptown) and Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy).
You (like us) are probably in need of catching up after seeing all the above, Showmax has S1-2 available here. S3 is scheduled for both the streaming service as well as on M-Net every Monday, starting 16 March 2020. More than enough time to catch-up before then we reckon, better start now.
