I'll admit that, in my old age, it was getting difficult during season 3 to remember which character was in which other character's body, and which scenes were from the "real world" and which were from which computer simulation.
So season 4 starts, and somehow, we're supposed to know that 7 or 8 years have passed since the final episode of season 3, where Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) had supposedly been killed off for good. But there she was in last night's episode, going by the name of "Cristina" and holding down a job writing video games, with no apparent memories of her previous existence. And was this episode set in New York City - or just a simulation of New York City?
The thing that's hard to decide about this series is whether the writing is so imaginative that it's setting new standards, or whether it's so lazy, with so many holes in the various plot lines, that we shouldn't bother to care.
Love the main theme song BTW! I've seen every episode so far and will probably stick with it until the end.
Dolores/Cristina: lookin' better than ever!
