I watched all of WestWorld’s first season as it came out.  It came about around 50% in my HBO engage-ometer, where Game of Thrones sets the bar at 100%.   It was good, slick, but not that good.  The overlapping multiple-time-lines plot that was picked apart in advance by Reddit did not make my jaw drop.  It’s hammering on the theme that people would be pillage-and-rapey if given a chance was a bit preachey and didn’t enhance the series.  It was mostly watchable because slightly porny, and because the acting was good despite the plot.  The robots-becoming-conscious-and-rebelling trope did not become overtly tedious.  It was a bit too stabby for me.  I will watch it again when it comes around.
