Hold onto your marbles, the feedback for Westworld Season 4 is in. We’re going over The Good, The Bad and The Questions from all of YOU. We’re putting Nolan and Joy’s Westworld under the microscope and poking a few holes in the season as we continue to try to figure this show out. Is a Season 5 coming? We hope so! Until then…we’re all in the simulation, the world we know it is long gone.
Whether you’re mourning or celebrating this season, tune in for Jim and A.Ron’s lively discussion on the season finale. In the words of Dylan Thomas, we’re asking this show “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against what this new acquisition might do to you.” If it doesn’t get a season 5, just could consider this show on a recursive loop.
Would living for eternity in a heaven inevitably turn into a hell? What’s intentional and what is just a misstep in the writing? Do hosts have real blood? Will Nolan and Joy Jeremy Bearimy their way out of this show? Tune in for these questions and more and perhaps hear your own theory discussed.
We’re pretty sure the show is messing with us. The answers that Metanoia gave us are confounding a majority of theorizers. As more and more theoretical outcomes are being crossed off of the list, we’re curious to see how this season of Westworld wraps up. Questions about Christina are always interesting, but can we please the notion that there might be horses in the sublime?
Craving more reasons to throw yourself in an existential crisis? Join Jim and A.Ron as they go through YOUR feedback and theories. Is there something deeper in the tower’s sound pattern? Why print so many Caleb bodies? Westworld is taking us on a journey more satisfying than seasons past, but will they stick the landing?
Yes, Westworld S04E06 “Fidelity” contains a ridiculous action scene, but it importantly recontextualizes some of the strange things we saw in previous episodes and serves up plenty of other scenes of interest that more than make this a good episode of Westworld.
Gather ‘round fleshy humans, we’re going through YOUR feedback and theories. Is this all part of Ford’s scheme? Is the show using the Darth Vader plan? Is there a secret Morse code message in lipstick application? Can hosts anchor themselves in reality the same way humans can? And we have special feedback for our philosophy episode!
Are we hosts dreaming that we’re human? Or are we humans dreaming that we’re hosts? Dive into the philosophical origins of the title of this episode. Jim comes around to A.Ron’s ascension theory based on evidence from this episode. We get some answers in this episode, but now we have more questions.
How is the sublime capable of simulating the entire earth? Can a heaven become a hell? Has the simulation spread to the entire universe? Is it a tuna melt or a pastrami sandwich?? Are the host marbles symbolic wads of dung??? And Michele Boyd, who plays Temperance Armistice, writes to your favorite hosts. Tune in for answers and laughs with Jim and A.Ron in this feedback episode.
Today we’re joined by Aaron Rabinowitz, lecturing philosopher at Rutgers, as well as host of the Embrace the Void and Philosophers in Space podcast. He’s going to be talking to us today about the concepts of freewill vs determinism. Are humans on inescapable loops? Are we truly free to make our own decisions? If not, do our choices matter in any meaningful way? How do these philosophies impact social policies, economics, criminal justice, and more? And how does this connect to the themes of Westworld?
