Well if YOU say I was rude then i guess I was, don't really care it's not like it hurts my feeling either way. RE: Westworld,I’ve never seen anything to suggest that Westworld is a sequel. It would be quite absurd if they would reopen the park only to have the either thing repeat, just in less lightning and with more sinister undertones. I might wrong, though.
And yeah, you were hella rude. You sound like someone who thinks that Rick & Morty is only for the smart peeps.
As for the series - I find it to be completely, utterly brilliant, one of the best things I’ve seen on TV in years. I love how Lindelof ups the absurds of the plot with complete self-awarness. The fact that so far every episode includes laughing or looking at in complete at the absurdity of the world and they live and the unfolding events is my favorite part, right next to how the whole American Hero Story is a taking a complete piss out of Zack Snyder.
The fact that the shows sticks to its guns and calls white suprematism by its name is really refreshing. It’s everything I hoped it to be but never dared to imagine that someone would actually make it this way.
And the production value - the performances, soundtrack, how much thought is put in set design and each shot - is simply exquisite.
it's alluded to several times that the current show is a sequel. Not to derail but here's a few signs that point to it:
- IN the first episode it's stated that they haven't had a falure that bad in 30 years. 30 years has been about how long it would have been since Futureworld.
- IN abandoned areas of the control rooms the signage matches the signage from the movies.
- You even see The gunslinger in the background of an abandoned area of the control rooms:
edit: I should spoiler this.
