When Bernard is interviewing Hector, who is naked, a tan mark can be seen on the host. The mark, which has the shape of a swimwear, should not exist, since Hector's character is always fully dressed under the sun in Westworld. See more »

For anyone wondering what it's all about, this is "it"
14 November 2016 | by big_brother_1984See all my reviews

The idea of the Westworld series sounds childishly simple - turn the plot of the movie around, add a big budget with some action, drama and mystery.

But the story of emotional robots and homicidal humans hits the mark dead center, though outside TV's usual target range. For me this isn't just about the plot, i.e. who's a mole or who's behind it all. This isn't Game of Thrones, wondering who will survive or not. For all I care they could be playing dominoes most of the time and I'd still be hooked.

This is about what you'd do in a "life without limits", without pretending, and how to be truly alive. And Westworld makes you wonder in such a casual way, and nothing feels pompous or cheesy. I can even watch the love scenes without flinching, because the characters are believable and their behavior understandable. Quote of the ep: "What door?".

So into 2/3rd of the series my verdict is 10/10: However the plot develops, it's simply impossible to screw this up because Westworld has already delivered something that can't be taken away.
