I agree. I wasn’t too impressed with the last episode, but it’s hardly bad. TGP has been so good, that a mediocre episode seems like the worst ever. It’s possible that the show will go downhill, but it’s too early to tell.
Westworld started out really good, but went off the rails in season 3. They went too arcane, like LOST on drugs. And bizarrely enough, one of the co-creators claims she never saw LOST. Maybe she ought to have—to avoid its pitfalls and to stop reinventing the wheel. Whatever its flaws, LOST was groundbreaking television, and it’s odd when people making the same genre of show claim to have skipped it. But maybe she was flubbing, because there was one scene in the recent season that screamed “LOST callback”.
