Beautiful scenery and direction. I just think the concept has already been done many times before. I will watch the next episode but I can already have a good picture of where it is headed, I dunno, I am neutral. Let's see what they have in store for us.

I have never seen this concept, done like this before.

and I cant really argue for any of it without huge spoilers which I dont wanna do.

I thought the perfunctory introduction to the concept and characters was done very well. I'll certainly watch more. I just hope they can deal with the morality issues the concept throws up in a fresh way, or at least in a meaningful way.

I haven't seen the first episode yet but I loved the first film and thought the second one, Futureworld, was pretty good with some nice ideas.

I have been procrastinating to sit and start watching the original TV series Beyond Westworld and I am on the fence on whether to get into that one before or after I get into the new Westworld.

As expected from a modern HBO show. Boring, drawn out void of any new ideas.

I'll stick to watching the Brynner Brolin classic

I see this as a replacement for Game of thrones. Its the new big thing for HBO.

The show seems extremly well done, and imo its a fresh take on things.

Also isnt the classic seen from the human perspective? where robots run rampant and attack humans.

The first episode of this series is nothing like that.

 

I havnt seen the oringal movie, from the 70's so Im just going by word of mouth here, but it appears to be a fresh take on things.

I rate the first episode of this series a perfect score, a 10/10.

How you can watch the same as me and say its boring/drawn out... I just dont understand, those where def. not the experiances I had watching it.

 

*edit: Im going to see too it, that I watch the old 70's movies so I can give a better opinion on the matter.

We must live in different dimensions 



I feel as if the whole show and premise will pivot around Anthony Hopkins' character. With the solution literally in his hands and the off button within reach of any employee, it's going to be interesting to see how the writers justify letting consciousness exist. I'm assuming we'll see the first season change from 'amusement park' to 'social experiment' in order to give the possible death of 'real' human beings validity. They're clearly not going to be able to let the robots continue gaining consciousness and cause disruption if the show is centred entirely around 'amusement park'. They'd just rewire the robots, build new ones or shut it down. Governmental intervention seems the possible solution. I can imagine an 'Under The Dome' type structure with this series, albeit a little more cerebral. I'm really looking forward to see how this series evolves.

Have you seen the movies? If they follow what the movies did then there's not much for speculation.

This is a series. If they don't solve the problem with motivation then eventually people will be asking 'but why not just make new robots or shut the project down.' There has to be another motivation for sustaining the project and I'm plumping for it becoming or being recognised as an important 'social experiment'.

Westworld series as in based on the epic 70's film?

Going to have to watch this.

Yes, this is a "reboot" of sorts.  Takes the concept and story, but done in a series with many aspects updated.

 That's interesting. The movie from 1973 was pretty cool. I think the setting can work in a longer story.

I just realized the original movie from '73 was directed by Michael Crichton.
