From Yul Brynner to Krista Allen
16 April 2012 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

This episode got so trashed by people who are obviously lacking imagination and love for science fiction genre, not to mention knowledge of its heritage.

It is easy to recognize, William Gibson in this episode made a pastiche to a classic Michael Crichton's sci-fi movie Westworld http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070909/, only turned to a cyberpunk version of it, and with a female goddess replacing a male cowboy villain from Westworld (Yul Brynner). However, the level 2 in the game is totally a visual citation of Westworld's set.

The idea of artificial intelligence rebelling against men, although being widely exploited (Space Oddissey 2001, Terminator, Tron, Westworld, Matrix, etc etc) is always challenging and fresh. I enjoyed this episode a lot.
