In Hector's recurring story line (where he robs the town on a mission of "mayhem") there is a moment where he fires a coup de grace while the sheriff's deputy is wounded on the ground. As he fires, you can see that a bullet casing appears to eject from the rifle (accompanied by the sound of brass ejecting). However, the rifle is clearly a lever action, and would not eject the casing in that manner. In the moments after, Hector cycles the action and another piece of brace is ejected from the rifle. The effect was likely added in post-production to add "realism". See more »

Security decay
11 December 2016 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

This eight episode centers on Maeve and the work 'she' is doing to make 'its' revolution happen. Thandie Newton is doing a great job in the show, but again, the security of the place just plainly (and sadly) points to the wholes in the plot and the writing in "Westworld". It just doesn't make sense, even if you have Ford or Bernard or someone working on the lines erasing security videos and helping Maeve (not that the show hints that this is what is happening, but it could be). It just takes the viewer from the story that there is so little consistency in respect to this point.

The rest of the story-lines take a step back. We still have Dolores and William trying to get wherever Dolores wants to get, Teddy and Man In Black on their wanderings searching for Wyatt, and Ford and Bernard conversations. All interesting enough, but a little bit slow-paced. There is a problem with shows that pile mystery over mystery, and play with the timeline and what's real and not, and it's that sometimes it's hard to keep the level and to answer questions instead of just putting more and more questions one on top of another till it all becomes a big bloated mess.

For now, "Westworld", though, is still delivering the goods.
