Meet The Characters Of HBO’s Westworld With These New Images

20 August 2016 11:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Though it hit a couple of snags along the way, HBO’s upcoming remake of Westworld is now on course for an October 2nd premiere, and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Set to bring Michael Crichton’s sci-fi tale to a new audience, the show focuses on a western theme park where human-like androids begin to exhibit eerie artificial intelligence outside of their intended parameters.

With star Evan Rachel Wood promising that we have no idea what’s coming and the latest trailer managing to intrigue us with its creepy and dark tone, we’re certainly eager for the fall to roll around. And now, to whet our appetite a bit more, HBO has rolled out several new images from the show, which can be see in the gallery above.

The photos give us a good look at cast members Anthony Hopkins, Rodrigo Santoro, »

30 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We're one step closer to the whacky Westworld debut.

HBO announced at the TCA press tour today it would debut on Sunday, October 2 and be joined the following week, October 9, by new comedies Divorce and Insecure.

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright among others. The cast is large and impressive.

Hopkins plays Westworld's creator, Harris the evil Man in Black and Wood is Dolores Abernathy, a rancher's daughter who discovers her entire life is a lie.

Westworld had a long road making it to the air, with production delays, casting scandals and concerns about violence.

The series is produced for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.

How ‘BoJack Horseman’ Achieved Perfection Without a Word

26 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 4.]

“You’ll find me in a sea of dreams where no one cares about my words.”

That Raphael Bob-Waksberg would make a largely silent episode of “BoJack Horseman” is as surprising as it is fitting, but the diegetic reason the episode features little dialogue (and none underwater) takes a well-executed punchline and turns it into transcendent TV. Revealed in the final seconds of “A Fish Out of Water,” we learn BoJack could have been speaking the entire time had he not been ignorant of how to use his underwater oxygen bubble. When he finally pushes his communication button and realizes the gaffe, BoJack lets out a frustrated “Oh, you have got to be kidd–” that’s cut off by the credits. While funny as a kicker to an episode building to a crescendo of mistakes, the choice also speaks to our antihero’s larger mental state and why he so »

'BoJack Horseman': Reviewing every season 3 episode of Netflix's best show

26 July 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman is the best of all of Netflix's original series, and one of the best shows on television. In its third season, which was released on Friday, the series about an incredibly rich, famous, and depressed acting horse somehow became even darker and more experimental, and the season's fourth installment — which I discussed at length with BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg — may turn out to be the best episode of TV anyone will make this year(*). (*) Hey, other streaming shows: BoJack should be an object lesson in how to tell a deeply serialized story across an entire season while still making individual episodes stand out as more than just pieces of the whole. Now that the season's out there, and many of you have had a chance to watch the whole thing, I'm going to do miniature reviews of each episode — with full spoilers for the whole season — coming up »
