Binged on this earlier this year.  Loved Season 1; it’s a contender for the best single season of any series.  Season 2 was okay, but it would have been hard for it to match Season 1, and it didn’t.

People who binge Westworld seem to enjoy it more than those who watch it week to week.

All the secrets (of S1) had been picked apart by the internet early on and it was a grind waiting for the slow week by week reveal to show what we already knew.

S2 was just glacially slow on a week by week basis. We started at the end in Ep.1 and took 10 weeks to show how we got there.

The once a week model feels so outdated.

But how are you supposed to cancel something in the middle of a season otherwise?

I genuinely prefer a weekly episode reveal, over binging. But I do avoid spoilers of whatever I'm watching in that manner, if it is possible to watch it online earlier. Even tv series that I'm watching on dvd I'll rarely watch more than two episodes in a row (even those with 30 min episodes).

didn't feel that way at all to me.
Season 1 was a very very slow paced kind of story,
and season 2 felt like OMG SO MUCH IS HAPPENING, EVERY EPISODE, to me. like 5 seasons of lost in one season.
half way through I started listening to the podcasts, too, and that was neat. wouldn't do that if I could marathon it.

I really would have liked to spent another season in the park with guests and hosts doing guest and host things.

Or in a different park, focusing on different people/hosts. But I guess doing that isn't any more possible than it was in Heroes, and main characters have to carry over to the next season.
