Twelve year old Milton Adams (William Ainscough) feels his world is in crisis. With his parents, Jane (Mia Kirshner) and Bill (David Sutcliffe), stressing about their careers and finances, and the neighborhood bully, Carter (Percy Hynes White), tormenting him, he is constantly anxious. When Milton’s optimistic grandfather Howard (Donald Sutherland) comes to visit, he learns the secret to finding true happiness from a man who has seen the world and who has committed to living life in the present.
It’s fair to say the Westworld has grown stale from its mysterious and exciting first episode. While I think this is a promising show, it isn’t holding my attention like I thought it would. I think the biggest problem is a lack of progress. Each week seems to be the same; a random host is malfunctioning and others continue to remember more and more from their past. I’m not saying this isn’t necessary for the story, but you can only keep the audience in suspense for so long before they start to get bored, especially when we already know what the story is leading to. Through its first three episodes, Westworld has followed the same narrative, just adding little twists along the way.
