Less of "This World.." Dolores would be a step in the right direction.

Agreed. I have only caught season one and even though I found it rather slick I never really got invested in the characters... so much so I have little interest in additional seasons.

Agreed. Though I felt that season 2 seemed to get twisty at times for its own sake, rather than in the best interests of telling the story, it really wasn't that complicated, especially if you went into it with the season 1 knowledge and understanding that things aren't necessarily as they appear.

yeah I was surprised to see the WW2 theme park...some really great visuals...the future LA setting should provide a nice contrast against the WW2 backdrop...looks like the AT&T merger combined with no more big budget GoT episodes has led to a really epic and expensive S3 of Westworld

I think you might be confusing William Hurt with Ed Harris ...they do look pretty similar and are almost the same age

I thought it was pretty clear what happened, but I guess there is still confusion.

What I meant was Ed Harris/William Hurt character looked much older than we saw him last in the S3 trailer.

TV is ghosting fans with absurdly long gaps between seasons

Can the networks and even the streaming services afford to be so casual with the audiences, 'ghosting' them for long periods of time while waiting on production and actors’ schedules to align?...it seems suicidal...

Looks like a new direction for the show. Hmmm.
