Some thoughts know that I've finished season 2:
They still haven't explained how the guns work and I really feel they should have at some point.
The ending of the storywriter's arc was out of character and I didn't like it. Also, unnecessary.
This show seems to make the classic mistake that if you're able to digitise your consciousness that makes you immortal when all you're doing is creating a copy. It really is obvious for a common sci-fi trope.
Nothing about the corporate decisions in the season makes any sense. I don't care how important the datafile is to them, the company would never sacrifice all its clients and board members like that. And at the end a rescue worker puts two of the rescued coders back to work five minutes after they've been saved. Everybody on that island should be getting free spa treatments and million dollar non-disclosure agreements.
Does the Indian arc make sense with their behaviour in season 1?
I had the same problem with season 1, but the show keeps on hating on the humans for their treatment of the hosts but that is completely unfair because they're convinced they're just playing with unconscious toys who cannot feel pain. The show doesn't even ever clarify if they do indeed feel pain or if they're just programmed to act like they do - even though what we're meant to believe is quite clear. ford murdered a bunch of innocent people and Dolores has no reason to be that angry.
Am I to believe there are no hosts on the outside? Really? This amazing, breakthrough technology is only available in a theme park for millionaires? I mean, we're already building robot brothels with (in comparison) shitty ass silicon machines, but in this world no one saw the business opportunity of mass producing a few Dolores's?
No way 4 million people can afford the park, even over 30 years. By any account it would be prohibitively expensive.
How do people not know about Arnold? Seriously, it's like Steve Wozniak died after the Mac 2 and no one remembers him, to the point that there is a clone of him working at Apple and no one's the wiser. Even William's never seen a photo of him!
About William: What?
