This new series is a remake/reboot of the classic 1978 film. After a long production the show premiered this past Sunday on HBO. Centering on robots that live in a theme park and preform for the guests. The robots gain consciousness and turn on their masters.

Reminded me a lot of RDR quite a bit. Anybody else catch this?

I remember seeing this advertised and didn't realise it was based off a movie. Never having heard of it before I saw the original 1973 movie before watching the first episode.

Really cool concept IMO. Star studded cast. Will continue to watch.:)

Yep, based on a film written and directed by Michael Crichton. He seems to have a knack for writing about futuristic theme parks gone horribly wrong. The first ep was great and I can't get enough of Ed Harris and Anthony Hopkins. Great casting.

Nice to see Steven Ogg again. This show's got a hell of a production value.

I love how Westworld has already crossed over into American politics.

Also, is this series based on a film? There's one on Nextflix (UK) of that name. Might give it a watch. Poster looks amazing.

The film written by Michael Crichton who apparently hates theme parks.

Ummm... is that cowboy in black (on the original poster) a spoiler? Not sure if the series so far is playing out the same as the film? Never seen it or even heard of it until now, watched the first two episodes though and it's very intriguing. The cast is superb, I love Evan Rachel Wood ;)

I think Ed Wood's character is supposed to fill in that role.

I don't think so, they've referenced him as a player in the show a few times.   I think they swapped him from being a terminatoresq dude to represent us, the players, when we want to go all "evil."

 

I do it sometimes... just murder people with an axe for no reason.

Really digging this show. It's well put together with lots of different mysteries going on. Seeing the robots become self aware is fascinating and scary. 

 

Also pretty neat how R* is teasing a new Red Dead whilst this show is going on.

I saw the original for the first time the other day and when I saw the gunslinger I thought "OMG he's a cowboy terminator" :D.

Did you enjoy it? Might watch it this weekend. 

 

I actually love that old-skool robot-terminator look. 

 

I watched half of the first episode of Westworld the other night but fell asleep. It was really enjoying it just wrecked after work. Watching the train pull in to the station I was thinking damn.. this is pure Armadillo from RDR.

Yes.:)

It was a really cool flick. I tried watching Futureworld, but it just didn't do anything for me.

For the time it had some incredible special effects. Westworld I mean.

A co worker kept bugging me to watch this and so I did. I watched the 3 episodes in one sitting, and I'm impressed. The way the show transitions to a Western from Sci-Fi is remarkable and it is done perfectly. If the movie is as enjoyable as the show then I'll have no choice but to watch it.
