Westworld E7, S3 (Part 2 of 2) Passed Pawn
Darion, Amanda and Tariq discuss the following: Loved Maeve used Harriet to get the first dig on Delores! Great fight sequence! NOW all of the sudden Maeve is not getting affected by a gun shot or stab wound! So it leaves the audience to conclude, other than killing the pearl, which types of wounds can a host survive?? What did Serac mean when he said, "The man I was, no longer exists." And Caleb was a outlier used to round up other outliers like Dekard in Blade Runner or in Looper.

Westworld E7, S3 (Part 1 of 2) Passed Pawn
The usual suspects, Darion, Tariq and Amanda express their roller coaster ride of emotions for this episode. Everything from: the opening scene with Clemintine and Hanaryo - Armistice's doppelganger from Shogun World making a shish kebab out of Musashi was bad A$$, to Delores knowing more about Serac and his brother than anyone! As mentioned in the Facebook group, in order to enjoy this season, you have to take the flies out of the ointment by ignoring the inconsistencies for now. And why they never explain why Maeve can't control Delores!

News19 Nerds & MCSFO Westworld S3, E6 (Part 4 of 4)
In part 4 of this review, we give our theories on the following: Who is the last pearl being made into? And who blew up Holores and her family? Serac is the most obvious answer, but there's another possible suspect! And what do you think Maeve will do to Serac for threatening her? We gave our opinions on if we will see Holores family, husband Michael Ealy (Eaze-ly) LOL and her son (aka Miles Morales lol) again? And we ask ourselves is it unrealistic to see these people believing in this predicted future so strongly? And what happens to those who decide not to look at their phone like Charlottes husband. And the important cautionary tale from writers about where social media could be going.

News19 Nerds & MCSFO Westworld S3, E6 (Part 3 of 4)
In part 3 of this News19 Nerds and MCSFO group podcast review, we had some unexpected answers when we asked, what tech from the show do you wish you had right now. We gave a run down of our favorite scenes and famous last word lines like: "I'm telling Serac!" and "I'll Keep you Safe!!" The only issues with this episode is seemingly unnecessary scene with Maeve in Nazi world again fighting the Nazi's and shutting down Hector way too soon before he has a chance to fight!

News19 Nerds & MCSFO Westworld S3, E6 (Part 2 of 4)
Who said Rehoboam correctly? The best way to pronounce Rehoboam is Facebook! With just 2 episodes left, we give our overall opinion of this season so far, and how it compares to seasons 1 and 2 in the park. Although we still love this series, some feel like this season is loosely based on seasons 1 and 2. and does the name still fit for this new reboot? Rehoboam kinda like a AI version of Miss. Cleo - that fakin Jamaican psychic hotline lady from the TV commercials in the late 90’s! We ask the group, would you want to see your predicted future? We already have a similar system in place now for middle school students called, Naviance system www.naviance.com - tradectory of a students performance, tells you what schools you're likely to be accepted to based on your history of grades. Some will see the predicted future as a warning if they need to make changes in their life. Some would not want to see it because as long as you're still alive, you can change it. With all the probably realities that exist, it would be almost impossible for any algorithm to accurately predict. But also wondering if Rehoboam isn't just predicting someone's life, it's controlling your options in life to guarantee you live out the future it predicted for you! The show is reminding us we have the ability to reflect on our own lives to see where we're headed and make the necessary changes. After reading books like Seth by Jane Roberts and US Anderson's Three Magic Words and The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot, it's nice to see some of these ideas weaved into science fiction and comic book stories.

Westworld E5, S3 (Part 3 of 3) Fish bowl of Loops
In this last part, guests Tariq and Darion discuss: The fishbowl ceiling over the escalator scene shows this world is a bowl of loops! Understanding the flaws in Rehoboam and if Delores is to blame or if it was ever addressed. More comparison between team Ford, Arnold and Delos with team Serac, his brother and Dempsey. Frustrating to see Caleb watch Delores eat all those bullets and still follow her without question! Painful to see Delores sacrifice her autonomous motor cycle. Music was really great and Love when Giggles comes on to the scene with the music behind him, he has a small part but brings a lot with his presence. Was it a directors flaw to see the ride share go so slow when Delores told it to go over 90 mph. Would love to see that ride share on the streets now!

Westworld E5, S3 (Part 2 of 3) Pull My Card
In part 2 of this episode: We asked ourselves, would we want our card pulled, to know our future? Breaking down some of the futures of the people on the train. Why we didn't see anyone with a positive future. Why some people only saw their loved one's future and why some were broadcast. People's future outcomes were like character profiles in video games! What if we had control over Rehoboam. Serac & his brother is Ford & Arnold and Dempsey is Mr. Delos. Was Arnold's intention different from Serac's. The Flies are Back, with a vengeance, but why! The symbolism of the fly in the scene and in the show.

Westworld E5, S3 (Part 1 of 3) My Brother's Keeper
Guests, Tariq, Darion and Amanda discuss if the multiple film genres or drug levels, worked in this episode or not. And how this drug started unraveling Caleb's past and the types of stuff he and his buddy Francis was into and who hired them! Learning who Serac is and his relationship with his brother, Jean Mi (Paul Cooper), his mental illness and Serac's inability to show tolerance and patience for his own brother and others who he considers "Outliers." Did Serac had good intensions with trying to save the world? Interesting that Serac didn't use the machine to treat mental illness. The white male mad scientists with a God complex trying to fix humans, is a familiar trope we see in a lot of sci-fi films like, Equillibrium - similar to Fahrenheit 451, Serenity. The Arrival is one of the only films that didn't go to the extreme in trying to help humanity.

Westworld E4, S3 (Part 4 of 4) The Fate of WW
Why Westworld ratings have dropped and what's the fate of the series? Will it be renewed for a 4th season. Thought provoking sci-fi movies like Transcendence haven't done very well either. But we can understand why it can be too much for some. If they do come back with one more season, will it take another 2 years? They need to set Bernard free as well! Jeffrey Wright is such an underrated actor who's been around for Years! He has the rare ability to transform himself and embody every character he takes on. Nice to see him in a suit and get out of the frumpy look. Other roles he played was MLK in Boycott, Basquiat, Lackawanna Blues and tons of films since 1990!

Westworld E4, S3 (Part 3 of 4) Types of Human Hosts
If William is a host, who's controlling him?? Why didn't the board create a device that distinguish host from human. There are two types of human like hosts: "Factory hosts" are like dolls, generic ones that don't look like anyone, and are built to follow a script, made in a factory and put in the park. Then there's the "Clone" host - these are a copy of a real person made in the image of someone's pearl. Delores is making an army of "factory hosts" to follow her programming. Maybe later she'll create "Clone hosts" from the data aka guests. Then she can use the "Cloned Hosts" to play out the lives of the real person once she kills them off. Delores went from a victim to victimizer. Was the Paris scene just an example of what the rest of the "real, real" world looks like? What if Rehoboam predicted the entire world's future and the only path for mankind? And what if this world we see is an alternate reality, but they know they're headed for that apocalyptic outcome and they're looking for a way to keep that from happening. Or what if the system is keeping everyone on a particular course and need to stop anyone that deviates from that course or disrupts it, like Delores! If Incite is responsible for the simulation within a simulation, is it a way of controlling the actions of real humans like they’re hosts, rather than controlling artificial beings? Similar to Infinity End Game. But will all these series coincide with the linear plan for this season?? And what's the connection between Westworld and Person of Interest series?

Westworld E4, S3 (Part 2 of 4) Maeve is The One
All of our Westworld episodes are SPOILERS! So in a nut shell... Ron Paul isn't a good fit to play a Teddy type of role, so we expect him to turn the tables on Delores! Don't need to see Maeve fight! She needs her crew to do her light work! Really frustrating to see Maeve constantly getting killed so easily, especially when she just got there in the real world! Why would Serac send Maeve out to take down Delores without being able to take a bullet or stab wound!! The writers have a Lot of clean up to do with that!! Maeve is definitely Neo and Delores is agent Smith from The Matrix!

Westworld E4, S3 (Part 1 of 4) #FreeMaeve
MCSFO's usual suspects, guests Darion and Tariq peal back the layers and give their thoughts on the following: Scenes that we liked, Cool fashion tech with Caleb trying on digital suit and tech to steel blood. Seeing all the OG characters in this one episodes. Got the big question answered about Delores being Mr. Smith and Maeve being Neo, but a lot more questions were created. Delores aka Mr. Smith - how do her copies differ, do they each develop their own level of consciousness and control? (Delores Hale, Delores Martin, Delores Musashi). Keeping Maeve on another leash so long is a big problem for the show! Since when did Delores learn martial arts? Maeve learned the way of the Samuri. How did Delores know so much about Maeve's Shogun trip! How would she know how Musashi felt back in Shogun world?? Possible inconsistency to have Delores Hale (Charlotte's body with copy of Delores Pearl), give off same mannerisms as Teddy just to throw off the audience but it doesn't fit the character of Delores, that's not how she acts. Delores is creating an army, so does this prove that the whole world isn't hosts, as Amanda theorizes, that all the humans are gone and everyone is a host? Theory - the "real world" is just a simulation created by Rehoboam? #FreeMaeve

Westworld S3, E3 (Part 6 of 6) "Rehoboam is Serac?"
Now we battle out our final host theories! Is Rehoboam, Serac in a host form like in the movie Transcendance with Johnny Depp. Is Serac luring Delores to get that data of the guests that were in the park? What if Arnold knew about Incite looking to take over and tried to kill the park to save human kind? Can't wait to see George aka Chappie Bot, go from being a "push over" LOL, to a mean Terminator!

Westworld S3, E3 (Part 5 of 6) "Caleb's the New Teddy"
Guests Tariq, Glenn and Darion answer the following: Charlotte's husband played by Michael Ealy and Tessa Thompson had a short #SexyScifiEyeCandy scene together, do you think we'll be seeing more of Michael Ealy on the show? How close will Caleb and Delores get? Is Caleb another Teddy for Delores? Or is she catching real feelings for Caleb. Was discovering that Charlotte is the mole in Delos that obvious?? Did they always have a few hosts in the real world? This would be a familiar trope we've seen play in other similar movies like Wayland in Alien franchise, Blade Runner and Ex-Machina.

Westworld S3, E3 (Part 4 of 6) "Google-Rehoboam"
Tariq, Darion and Glennn are asked to pull back the layers and contemplate Free Will vs Determinism. How realistic is Rehoboam for us today? Is Google and Facebook the beginnings of Rehoboam? Do you think we have the ability to predict someone's future or a probable future? And will that prediction be correct? How predictable are we? Are we more complicated than that? Comparing the show to our real lives and questioning if there are people controlling us today! Is Delores made more durable than newer hosts? How can she heal herself after getting shot up and injected with a deadly substance, while other hosts like Maeve is always on the table getting repairs.

Westworld S3, E3, (Part 3 of 6) What the Hale!
In this episode we're arguing... rather proving our theories and tackling the biggest question, who's in Charlotte if it's not Teddy? Is Delores taken by Caleb? Will her relationship with Caleb change our perception of humans? Does Delores have other plans for Caleb? How will he react when he finds out she's not human? Will he find out she's a host before he finds out he's one too?

Westworld S3, E3 (Part 2 of 6) "Around Westworld Tour"
in this episode we dive deep into the shows stunning cinematography and architecture. Beautiful shots in Spain and Singapore inspires an idea to do an Around the Westworld Tour to visit all the set locations like The City of Arts & Sciences in Spain. Favorite scenes: The wide shot of The Riot Control Mech aka the Transformer bot and landscape in the background. Detailed and purposeful architecture - from the look of the hospital building to the Delos cold look The headquarters building looks like a big pearl set in the ground. Shows like WW inspires young filmmakers to create series more than film. Easter Egg - Arrows from the Rehoboam ball printed on Charlotte's son's bedding. Maybe a reminder that big brother is watching, like in the movie Eagle Eye. Or just promoting WW merch! Favorite Tech: The Drip - tech in the roof of Caleb's mouth Who the Hale is in Hale? Who's betting on Teddy being the pearl inside Charlotte Hale's body. Fan theory on why Teddy's pearl can not be inside Charlotte! (correction - James Marsden (not John Marsden :p)
