This science fiction western series from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy was inspired by Michael Crichton's Westworld (1973) and is set at a Wild West theme park created by Dr. Robert Ford (Sir Anthony Hopkins) with human-like androids, where guests are encouraged to indulge their fantasies and desires.Written by
Season 1 is well worth a watch for the sheer production value and a great story arc. But, season 2 descends into bumbling nonsense - too many writers, too many ideas, too many stories.. what a shame. I see that JJ Abrams is involved in this show so this explains why it's like 'Lost' - rambling with no sense of ending.
The writers have been given far too much time to ponder human existence and whether cyborgs could think for themselves - just give us a stunning series of worlds with action, adventure and dips into how cyborgs could evolve without committing too much time to this.
Basically, this stunning action series has fallen into a mumbo-jumbo trap. Maybe Season 3 will be better but I suspect that the best of this show is over....disappointing.
