Big Fan of Joanna but Richard, gesh!

I’ve enjoyed listening to both of Joanna’s podcasts on Westworld, after discovering her Game of Thrones podcasts. It’s been a pleasure to have an insightful woman critiquing these terrific dystopian shows. It’s clear Joanna is also a fan, who enjoys watching, which makes her comments and criticism even more relevant to fans of the show.

Richard is a smart guy, but anyone listening to these podcasts are likely to find his approach of slashing and burning all but the first season of Westworld, one-dimensional. He often misses the mark and frequently comes off at times as snarky and self absorbed. His disdain for the show often makes listening a chore. It’s okay to make smart critique (we all find fault with this show, but enjoy it nonetheless) and to point out inconsistencies, but Richard’s obvious inability to find any enjoyment in the show make him tiresome to listen to.

Miss plot points

It frustrates me that the hosts often miss, perhaps subtle, plot points and then spend time surmising about the characters or plot with missing information. Other times, their analysis will be very superficial without backing up and integrating these scenes into a broader arc.

This is dull.
