My comment to the NYT 4/23/18: I like(d) Westworld but I was very disturbed by the season 2 premiere. Lining up hosts and shooting them as they begged for mercy was painful to watch. As painful as watching seemingly innocent people being shot randomly by hosts. The episode reminded me of an old Arnold Schwarzenegger movie where the bad guy body count was off the charts. I don’t entertain myself by watching high body count movies. I am concerned about the moral implications of such viewing. I am also concerned about glorifying snipers, people who shoot other people from concealed positions. Is this the world we want? It is certainly not the plot line I am interested in in Westworld. If it continues, Westworld may be dropped from my very selective TV viewing list.
