Critic reviews for The Winter Line
Twists are great when they matter and techno-babble will always be necessary to some degree, but flashy gimmicks can't carry a full hour of television, especially when you're the heir apparent to "Game of Thrones."
With episode 2, "The Winter Line," we get some of that old Westworld spark back, especially now that Maeve (Thandie Newton) is back.
It still retains the exciting new energy that the first episode has brilliantly established while at the same time building an anticipation of what could be a great war between two sides of humanity.
The series has once again assumed that it is necessary to bet on a more lively pace without sacrificing its impeccable technical part or having to introduce new players to the game. [Full Review in Spanish]
Overall I enjoyed this episode a lot better than I did the first episode I think that even though it was a little bit confusing at first... I think that it was... more straight to the point.
