A few words about…™ Westworld – Season Two: The Door — in 4k UHD Blu-ray

The new 4k release via WB, is a meticulously produced set, 6 discs, 3 each of 4k and Blu-ray, and like the first season is one of the reasons to own 4k playback gear. 4 Stars

The HBO Westworld series is probably one of those love it or hate it things. I’m very much on the love side, waiting for each turn of events to reveal a bit more of the tale.

The second season arrives full force, reminding me of Lost in some ways.

The new 4k release via WB, is a meticulously produced set, 6 discs, 3 each of 4k and Blu-ray, and like the first season is one of the reasons to own 4k playback gear.

Shot on film (35/3), the second season was finished in 4k, which means that you’re seeing perfection.

While some of the story may confuse, the acting is superb from all quarters, and the 636 minutes will alternatively, delight and confound.

  1. I loved the first series, I didn't get this on TV so I watched the Blu-ray set, & I'll be buying the season two set, a good excuse to re-visit the first season before starting on this. I hope it's not too much like Lost, a series that started off brilliantly, but disappeared up its own fundament as the seasons went on.

  2. I love this show but just finished the second season for the first time today. I thought I had a pretty good handle on what was going on up until the last 1/2 hour. Then I was just left with "WTF is even going on?".

    The first season had it's shares of twists, and upon rewatching it, everything clicked into place nicely.

    I don't think any number or rewatches of the second season could help me decipher it.

    I need a linear timeline like they put on the special edition DVD of Memento.

  3. I've been surprised that on another forum the second season has received little love. I enjoyed it as much as the first season, with its shifting time-lines and ambiguity. The positive comments in this thread reflect my own reaction to this series much more than the negative ones elsewhere. As to those ambiguities, I found several podcasts that broadened my understanding and appreciation of each episode; most notably the podcast from Vanity Fair was illuminating. A second viewing of each episode after listening to the VF podcast was great fun.

    Nah there were more. The very first shot of the season is 2.35:1 and

    Spoiler

    I haven't watched the discs yet, but my memory of that opening scene (from earlier this year) is that it is set where the others are, and the aspect ratio is the "tell."
