Trivia

Originally a two hour MGM TV movie-pilot, with the first two hour pilot airing on CBS-TV, followed weekly by four one hour films. New permanent and swing sets were built at the MGM Culver City Studios, in December 1979, going into immediate production as a CBS mid season replacement. The fifth installment, filming the first four days production, with cast and crew on location at a Lake Piru auto-racetrack, MGM was notified that CBS axed the low rated series. The next day, upon cast and crew returning from location to the studio for stage filming, which was on schedule, MGM ceased production without further filming. Instead, a spontaneous wrap party occurred that night ending the production with all stage sets dressed without a camera roll. MGM Executives regretted not completing the last show when the production was marketed as a syndicated series in Australia and Japan. With six installments, "Beyond Westworld's" television viewing foreign syndicated market should have brought a greater financial return for MGM Television. See more »

23 August 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Largely forgotten TV series spun-off from the two successful films "Westworld" and "Futureworld" is a total dud unfortunately. Premise of rogue scientist Simon Quaid(James Wainwright) hijacking the androids of Delos to infiltrate and conquer the world, and the attempts of it's security chief John Moore(Jim McMullan) to stop him makes little sense, either within the continuity of the two films, or even within the constraints of logic, since Moore always seems to go it alone(with the help of fellow agent Pam Williams, played by Connie Selleca) when a threat of this magnitude should be handled by the FBI or other agencies right? Apparently not... Plots of the 5 episodes are dismayingly trite and mundane, failing to involve the viewer in any way, and it all ends inconclusively, making this series a waste of time.

Now on DVD from Warner Archive, so people can judge for themselves.
