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.

Trivia

The park has "been operating for 30 years since the last glitch". There is a scene in the lower level which is now used for "cold storage" that looks like the ruins of the original Delos entrance to the park dating back to the original Westworld and Futurewold movies. The depicted Delos entrance was only visible in the sequel - there was no entrance foyer shown in the original Westworld movie. This hints at a continuation of the original story-line rather than being a complete reboot.

This would be evidenced as canon if Westworld (1973) took place in 1983 and Future World (1976) being set in 1985. 30 years being 2015. 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?

Awesome . Mesmerizing
28 November 2017 | by jetkotSee all my reviews

This show got me instantly hooked on. Evan Rachel Wood is extremely beautiful and gorgeous. She acts well too. Ed Harris looks menacing . Many other characters get introduced and they act really well. The visuals are spectacular and the action sequences are brilliant. Anthony Hopkins is the icing on the cake. Brilliant show .I am loving this.
