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 below-ground storage area for decommissioned androids, you can see a globe statue at the bottom of the dilapidated escalators. An identical one was on display in the arrival area in Futureworld (1976), the sequel to Westworld (1973), hinting that older areas of the original park have been abandoned. In fact, if you look closely at the globe, you can see the word "Delos" spelled out along the circumference, the name of the company that owns the park. See more »
Well, since my longer review got deleted by mistake and don't feel like writing it again: Season 1- great. Season 2 got so pretentious that it stopped being fun to follow. Back and forth, here and there, blah, blah, blah. I mean, it's all good to not put it all on the table and leave something for the viewer's brain to work out, but second season was just frustrating. I was going to give it 7 stars, but I got so angry that it just was going and going and going and ended up .... god knows where, I give it only 6*. I couldn't finish season 2 unfortunately. If that makes me simple minded ( as someone below mentioned) so be it.
