    Episode 2.

    So, we now have about five timelines in play.

    I'm confused.

    I think this season will once again end with me going 'whoaaaaa' and re-watching to see what I missed.

    Yep, I don't mind if it continues as a slow burn for the rest of the season to flesh out the characters either.

    Loving seeing them develop and interact now that they are 'free'.

    I wasn't wowed by the first episode (despite the oodles of gore), but I'm definitely more fond of the second episode.

    I loved the flashbacks to the earliest days, with the "full of splendour" callbacks. Also dug the brief cameo from our boy, Gus Frain.

    Episode 3 is kind of all over the place again.

    Yeah.

    The scene where the human security team walks incredibly slowly in a straight line into a hail of gunfire stretched my suspension of disbelief a bit. It also seemed to be done purely to illustrate how the hosts were able to take over so quickly - that the entire security force was led into a (very avoidable) trap. Was a bit 'Dark Knight Rises' for me.

    It's still great TV but I'm hoping there's an 'oh damn' moment on the horizon.

    Some interesting theories floating around about Ghost Nation online as well.

    I assumed that was because (they thought) the hosts were still using host non-lethal ammo.

    Basically just an action episode which I believe they've earned.

    I suppose - but the season 1 finale made it pretty clear that this wasn't the case.

    That was one of the best episodes of the show so far IMO.

    Most boring episode of the season for me. Looks like it will be better next week though.

    I didn’t mind it. I lol’d pretty hard at the revelation that Lee just copy/pastes stories.

    I think just Shogun world didn't interest me and am keen for more William and less Dolores/Maive, especially after last week lol.
