In this week’s episode of Quality Control, Dave Tach and Russ Frushtick talk about Westworld season two.

Press play below to learn more about what we think the season did right and wrong. We talk about characters, plot and where it goes from here. In this spoiler-filled episode, you’ll find out why Dave’s mad at Dolores, why Russ didn’t quite connect with the first season (but Dave super did), and why Westworld reminds us of Lost (which is a good thing) and the Matrix trilogy (which is a less good thing).

And if you’re looking for more on Westworld, be sure to read our story that covers what we already know about Westworld season 3 (including that wild post-credits stinger and what it means).
