Critic reviews for Parce Domine

Moving out of the park certainly sparked interest, as did Paul's always welcome presence, and the rest of Episode 1 got enough right to spark hope for the new season.

As a first episode, it was okay. However, I do think the episode makes for a hard sell if the audience isn't already invested in the series up to this point.

Overall, Westworld succeeds in offering thought-provoking ideas about the world, its design and whether our narratives are prewritten.

So, Season Three, Episode One, of Westworld: No Man in Black, no Westworld, no Maeve, no Valleys or Forges or Cradles. And you know what? I'm good with that! Consider this a "Fuck yeah," Westworld.

Westworld's return ensures its characters enter the human world with a renewed focus and a storyline much easier to follow.

I enjoyed seeing a new world laid out, one with electrified clothing, designer drugs, driverless motorbikes and nightclubs that seem halfway between an orgy and an art school graduate show.
