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
During times of danger in the show, there is a series of two notes that are played (on a natural scale) from Middle E to Middle D sharp. These two notes are famous in the Western genre of movies. They are particularly known as the first two notes from "Man with a Harmonica", which was the theme of the character known as "Harmonica", who was played by Charles Bronson in Once Upon a Time in the West (1968).

This show is so far perfect. The story is intriguing, the visuals are beautiful and the acting is incredible.
The previous reviewer who said the violence is unnecessary has missed the point in my opinion. The violence is very much needed. It is there to make you feel uncomfortable, because it is that inner dark side and battle between good and evil (and more often than not the middle ground between) that is at the very epicenter of the human condition.This is what the show is often commenting on and this is what makes this show so interesting, thought provoking and ultimately entertaining.
If it carries on in the same vein we will have a modern day classic on our hands.
