The sci-fi western series from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy was inspired by the 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name and is set at a Wild West theme park created by Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) with human-like androids where guests are encouraged to indulge their fantasies and desires.Written by
In the first episode, Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) engages in conversation with one of the first, now-defunct robots to occupy Westworld. The robot is played, in a cameo, by a heavily made-up Michael Wincott, who appeared as serial killer Ed Gein opposite Hopkins in Hitchcock (2012) (with Hopkins in the title role). See more »
Man in Black:
Aw, yeah, cue the waterworks. About time you realized the futility of your situation.
I'm not crying for myself. I'm crying for you. They say that great beasts once roamed this world. As big as mountains. Yet all that's left of them is bone and amber. Time undoes even the mightiest of creatures. Just look at what it's done to you. One day you will perish. You will lie with the rest of your kind in the dirt. Your dreams forgotten, your horrors effaced. Your bones will turn to sand. And upon that...

1st season was is a 9. Second season is 3. Hence the 6.
The first season was novel and paced very well, along with the appropriate character developments. The second season was entirely something else. It was so bad it reminded me of Lost - which I stopped watching during the 3rd season. In Westworld, the pacing was gone. Useless flashbacks that had no importance to the story almost every five minutes ended any momentum it had. In fact, the flashbacks seemed as if somebody was just trying to ''stretch'' the show so that it would get a thrid season. As far as AI shows are concerned. I have a preference for Humans. After the second season, I couldn't see how they could have continued it with a third, but they did - and did they ever.
