Storyline

As another day of fantasy plays out in Westworld - a vast, remote park where guests pay top dollar to share wild-west adventures with android "hosts" - top programmer Bernard Lowe alerts park founder Dr. Robert Ford about incidents of aberrant behavior cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts. Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher's daughter named Dolores encounters a gunslinger named Teddy in the street - but their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black and, later, by a supporting host's unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.

Goofs

At the start of the shoot-up, after finishing off the first victim the baddie reloads the sheriff's rifle, ejecting the spent cartridge, which is heard to ping off a hard surface, as it may a tarmac road but not the dirt road in the middle of town. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
[dark room, all lines voice-over]
Bernard Lowe: Bring her back online.
[a ring of light appears, scarcely illuminating a blond female form. More lights turn on behind, straight segments surrounding areas containing more halo-like lights]
Bernard Lowe: Can you hear me?
[the light over the female brightens. Though still draped in shadow, she is unmistakably nude]
Dolores Abernathy: [In Western accent] Yes. I'm sorry. I'm... not feelin' quite myself.
Bernard Lowe: You can lose the accent. Do you know where you are?

It is original yet artificially intelligent
3 October 2016 | by jeetg04See all my reviews

The pilot of this series lived up-to expectations, with a nice set-up of theme park and well established characters within the theme park, who follow normal repetitive daily routine in the theme park with minor changes everyday.

The show gives viewer a perspective of normal old school western world in the beginning, only to bring out the sci-fi element swiftly in the story. At the beginning the sci-fi element seems quite normal, justifying the theme-park element of the story. But, eventually the pilot elaborated more on sci-fi element and gave audience a slight hint of self-developed instincts in some of the characters.

This show with its unique representation is going to dwell into different aspects of human behavior in conjunction with artificial intelligence. And will also elaborate on the philosophical as well as psychological outlook of human nature and its consequences.
