Agreed. When I watched parts of the first season years ago, I was put off by all the gratuitous "sex and violence sells" memes because I was confused by so many non-linear story lines. I started over with it last month while subscribing to HBO for Game of Thrones. This time I could follow the story lines better but still found it gratuitous and too dark a view of human nature with its dystopian world.Westworld confused me and I finally gave up on it. Mostly, I just didn't care much about any of the characters. Probably my loss. Probably.
