Westworld Deep Dive 2.5



In this episode, Jeremy D. Johnson and I dive deeper into the coming conflict between 2 styles of consciousness evolution – Dolores and the fanatical path of an old fashioned Warrior/Prophet, and the compassionate (maybe even post-modern?) hero’s journey of Maeve.

Plus… all of these memes come into play at some point along the way…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These Deep Dives are not Recaps and they do contain Spoilers. We talk about the philosophy, mythology, and cultural impact of stories and events that strike a chord. Westworld is some of the smartest Sci-fi to come along in a while, and we’re doing Deep Dives for every episode of Season 2.

Jeremy Johnson returns for our discussion of Westworld Season 2, Episode 4 – “The Riddle of the Sphinx.” And things are getting really interesting…

Today we break down the tightly constructed, uncanny horror of hungry ghost James Delos and his sad, sad journey from life to captivity in a glass menagerie to the big fall into hell as the Wheel of Samsara takes a bad, bad turn.

Also today… Jeremy takes us on a brief trip through the films of Andrei Tarkovsky and busts out some killer Musashi references…
