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).
A new cast member has joined the cast of Westworld! We discuss the exciting news along with the ridiculous number of Emmy nominations.
We also preview next week’s discussion of the pilot episode of Dr Quinn: Medicine Woman.
The piano player covers were such a big part of the first season of Westworld. Craig and Heather couldn’t wait until 2018 to hear the next group of songs to be covered in season two. So they got the help of the musician behind our podcast theme music to help compose a hypothetical season two soundtrack. Alex Thompson joins Craig and Heather to play 10 amazing songs from all different genres in the piano player style. You'll hear piano player versions of: Into the West (6:39), Hurt (10:34), Rolling in the Deep (17:51), Jolene (21:07), Chandelier (25:11), Time in a Bottle (29:54), Mad World (34:23), Idioteque (38:14), Send in the Clowns (43:27), and I Say a Little Prayer (48:52).
And Craig, Heather, and Alex discuss each one and how they might fit into the show.
This is the most exciting thing to happen since the finale of Westworld! Craig and Heather share a project that has been in the works for quite some time. We got the creator of our honky tonk theme music to help us imagine what the music might be like in season 2. Here’s a preview of what’s to come.
