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.

[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?

Stunning And Riveting Pilot
4 October 2016 | by adarshbohra69See all my reviews

One of the Show's And Pilot's best features (much like Game of Thrones) is that it distances itself to such a degree from anything you've seen before, that anything could happen. The particularly brilliant spin here is that even as we hope to learn the rules, glitches and human interference are pushing those rules aside, so it becomes a wonderfully maddening game of "the more we know the limits, the less there are limits." It plays off of the disconnect it forces you to have by virtue of its own world creation, by shifting these limits, and throwing out your natural reaction to what you're watching. It becomes an amazing dance, as you watch a gunfight while realizing that you don't know what you're supposed to do with it really, or what watching it means. You're used to watching gunfights while knowing the good guys are going to win, but this is a whole new game. 'Westworld' straddles the future and the past of your imagination. In the first episode we get to see this 'Westworld' and it's inhabitants. Guns, Bots, Beautiful girls and an uncertain future make for potential gold with this show. As always HBO delivers in the drama department once again
