Craig Carter and Meredith Fowler take a moment to review the incredible season two of Westworld. They discuss the Teddy and Stubbs twists (2:22), themes of privacy and choice (5:31), lingering questions (11:28), podcast milestones (15:15), our favorite blooper (20:04), the music (25:38), things we didn’t like (31:52), and our favorite moments (42:07).
We’re still recovering from what might be the best episode yet (we feel like we’re saying that a lot these days). After a brief discussion about the episode in general, Craig and Meredith discuss Delos’ disturbing experiment (8:28), the Man in Black on the path to glory (36:29), and Bernard and Elsie’s horrific adventure (1:04:55).
We’ve seen western. We’ve seen sci-fi. This time we saw Westworld go pure horror and it was glorious. Lisa Joy did not come to play for her directorial debut. Craig and Jake discuss ‘The Riddle of the Sphinx’ and its many layers (2:17) before talking about their favorite moments (18:39).
We watched all the special features of the Westworld Season One Blu-ray. Craig and Heather talk about the contents of the special edition steel book (2:46), the first week of filming Westworld (10:33), how the show’s intro was made (14:43), the music (19:02), the director’s commentary and what they thought was missing (21:00), the inspiration for how the hosts are created (26:52), and the blooper reel (29:01).
