    Westworld on HBO

    I am just blown away by this series.

    Recently had the opportunity to watch it episode by episode from the beginning (2 seasons now)

    The theme as you would expect is broadly similar to the classic movie.. but SO MUCH MORE complex.
    The robots flickering of beginning consciousness over the years from a spark into a flame is described so well.

    And the huge vistas of the westworld park (mostly Monument Valley park) are just breathtaking and well featured..

    And then there is an ever evolving complex back story to everything..the scenes sometimes cover different years and eventually the viewer starts understanding what the "now" versus the past memories is which in itself can blow you away with the many plot twists.

    Warning : The series is gritty and as far as peoples behavior goes realistic... so while its not a sex show by any means it has lot's of nudity and violence. I rarely say this but Grown-ups only.

    After the first Free Episode on cable I had a choice of buying more episodes at 3.99 each.. but it was much cheaper to just join HBO at 15 bucks a month.. once I am done with both season I may cancel it again..

    So this is based on that old movie where two guys go on vacation to this dude ranch manned by robots?
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    yes except it it MUCH more complex.
    multiple plottwists scenes from past years and present years mixed...

    And very slow start of the consciousness of the machines ( which are really androids as they have skin and blood)

    The pilot is free to watch.
    Its almost feature lenght.

    Exactly. Similar to Fantasy Island except Tattoo shoots Emmanuel. Since she isn't real, he doesn't have to justify himself to Mr. Roarke. Emmanuel can be repaired since the XOXO's changed to 0101's. Now that's a love vs assembly language programming joke. You can't get this **** elsewhere!

    To me it is a complex and pointless messed up skin flick type series. It's not for me but I get why people might like it. Rates an 8.9 out of 10 on IMDB.

    Lol. I just remember that the movie was cheesy and silly, but it did out Yul Brenner as being a robot.
