How ‘Westworld’ Overcame Setbacks to Shine as HBO’s New Tentpole
Just about anything you wouldn’t want written about your television show prior to its premiere was written about “Westworld.” Production delays, charges of casual misogyny, labor complaints invoking the phrase “genital-to-genital touching” — all dominated advance coverage of the series, and all provided fodder for anyone skeptical of HBO’s ability to execute a big-budget sci-fi drama as ambitious as anything in TV history at a time of executive transition in the cable channel’s uppermost ranks.

As Netflix debuts are want to do, the shows will be available to stream (and now possibly download) starting at 12:01 a.m. Pt on the given release date.
The description provided for the Christmas Special leaves a lot to the imagination: “The journey continues as these eight singular hearts and minds weave in and out of each other’s lives finding deeper connections, learning darker, more desperate secrets about one another and struggling to identify with more than just oneself.” A similarly vague setup for Season 2 says that the whole cast will struggle to survive and understand one another “against all odds.”
