    If the horse is a robot, and robots can’t kill humans, what would be the point of stringing up Ed Harris to a horse?

    I’m guessing you sign a waiver where they tell you you can be killed accidentally. The “human” hosts can’t actively kill you (they can hurt you, not kill you), but nothing’s to stop you from falling off a horse, or a cliff, or drowning, or having a heart attack during a bar fight.  My hunch is that animal robots have more realistic programming when it comes to interacting with guests. They’re probably legally part of the environment in a way that human hosts aren’t.

    I’d love to know all the logistics behind that place.

    I enjoy watching Westworld, but I don’t think it is a very good show.  After all these “mysteries” have been solved, not much has actually happened at all. I guess they are trying to oust Ford and the hooker is trying to get out. I don’t find myself giving too much of a fuck about either one. Where will Maeve live? What happens if there is inclement weather?

    Also, I’m struck by the fact fans are orgasming themselves to the acting taking place. Holy Shit Sir Anthony Hopkins really pulls off the vacant psycho look!

    :lol: It really is very average. I mean, I thought True Detective was average despite fantastic acting. This ain’t going to cut it.

     

    The Crown though.  :wub:

    What I like about it is imagining what the endgame would look like. This is the thorny question around most AI narratives. When is the artificial thing complex and “human” enough to acquire human rights? What happens when it wants them? Who decides? Do we change how they’re treated? Do we get an unintended Frankenstein scenario? Can the genie go back in the bottle, etcetera.

    Showtime did an early on demand of The Affair premiere, I see it aired regularly last night. I might be tapping out with Noah getting abused by creepy Brendan Fraser

    I liked last night- Whitney’s boyfriend is the raging asshole that every parent dreads his daughter will end up with. And the name: Furkat! LOL.

    To be fair, Whitney’s turning into a raging asshole, so they might be meant for each other.

    Good column about Westworld and spoilers and fan theories:

    https://theringer.com/the-internet-is-spoiling-tv-f8ccfeda74a4#.t79ucfg7m

    I like the part about how when all the theories are guessed correctly, sometimes you have fall back on Anthony Hopkins’ acting. :lol:

    not as much of a problem as This is Us (after the initial two-timeline fakeout) I’d imagine :lol:   ;-)

    currently chewing through Brotherhood.  Preposterous that I’ve never seen it- not only filmed in my city, but on my block.  My noted provincialism aside, really enjoying it.  Doesn’t quite split the difference between Sopranos and The Wire, but comes close

    Loved Brotherhood.

    Thank you! That’s been bugging the hell out of me (not so much that I would look it up myself, but still…)

    Westworld…  That is my favorite first season of a show that I can remember.  Holy crap was that amazing.

    I thought the finale was just ok. Watching that show is like seeing the Sixth Sense for the first time, except in the first scene Wahlberg breaks the 4th wall and says Bruce Willis is a dead guy the whole time.

    It’s not even the best first season of an HBO show with cowboys in it. :lol:

    Sopranos
    Wire
    Deadwood
    GoT
    Boardwalk
    Leftovers
    Curb
    Luck
    Oz

    Ok, maybe.

    I just don’t like and don’t think it holds up outside of the leads acting their dicks off. I wouldn’t argue against it, but I personally think the first season of Entourage is way more enjoyable. Hello Ladies too.

    Was that some added deal with Noah and his sister on The Affair last night, with her crying and Noah saying forget about it, it was 30 years ago?

    First season of Flight of the Conchords also a personal favorite.

    Well I didn’t say best, I love sci-fi and that show and the music in it just hit all the right notes for me.  Sopranos and the Wire are obviously the best overall shows, but if the Leftovers nails season 3 it might be my overall top show for everything else.

    BTW I’m sure we’ll hear that it was a host Ford at the end there.

    I was thinking that now George Cain doesn’t need to worry about Hopkins dying between seasons.
