At Monday’s night’s SAG-AFTRA board meeting, someone told me that my Facebook posts haven’t been very funny lately. I replied, “What do you expect, with this horrible disappointment that we all have to live with?” I mean, seriously, how can anyone be funny when we know we have to wait until 2018 before there are new episodes of Westworld?

Yes, that’s right. The producers of the fantastic HBO show say it’ll be 2018 before the second season.

And there are a couple of other recent events to be a little depressed and worried about, but they pale in comparison to the hellish wait we’ll have to endure before we can find out what happens next for Dr. Ford, Bernard, Delores, Maeve, and the hapless members of the DELOS board.
