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
One of the production companies that makes Westworld is J. J. Abrams's Bad Robot (which over the years has also produced such TV shows as Alias, Lost, and Fringe). Although it has had its name for many years prior to producing Westworld, the company's name also serves as an (extremely) brief synopsis of the series's plot. See more »
During the opening credits' animation, a hand is shown firing a revolver. However, the mechanics depicted -- the trigger pull cocking the hammer -- are only true of double-action revolvers. The 1873 Colt pictured would require the hammer to be cocked by the thumb before the trigger could be pulled. See more »
Pay attention, this series explores some very subtle story lines. I was extremely impressed when they introduced the bicameral mind concept when considering consciousness. That is one of the more important concepts when considering the origins of consciousness. I hope they explore this idea in greater detail and especially its implications related to physics. It is rare indeed to have a fictional work undertake such a complex topic without trivializing it. I definitely have to compliment the writers for undertaking such a complex topic and I hope they continue to explore the implications.
Again, IMDb thinks I should add additional lines to my review which is ridiculous. I have offered a clear and concise review and they want an arbitrary number of lines, what kind of idiot makes this a requirement?
