david chen is constantly whining

i completely understand having frustrations with the show, but he has had this whiny attitude since season 1. if you go back and listen, he’s just constantly complaining and wondering why he doesn’t have all the answers yet even though this is obviously a mystery sci fi show that purposefully makes things mysterious so they can explain what’s going on at the very end of the season. If that’s not your flavor of show, maybe stick to simpler shows that aren’t mystery focused? I do enjoy the other guy though. Great takes and really funny. he’s the reason i didn’t give this review a 1 star.

Nice to Hear Asians Talking About Entertainment Industry

Late to this podcast but was so happy to find another set of Asian American voices outside of Jason Concepcion (who I think is great). David and Siddhant do a good job summarizing and then theorizing about Westworld in a succinct and entertaining manner. They can be critical but unlike some of the stuff the Simmons empire puts out on popular culture, they don’t pontificate on what they don’t like to the tune of 2-3 hours! I love their sense of humor as well like when Siddhant told David that he found this answer on this special website: G-o-o-g-l-e.com. Nerd humor but still funny. Waiting for something on Andor and House of Dragons. Keep up the good work.

Great recap of episodes!

These guys really have a handle on the meat and bones of Westworld. Season 4 has been great and and if you fell off Westworld, time to get back on the horse. It’s been great!
