Storyline

Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic "hosts." However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park's guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.

Trivia

Warner Brothers had been trying to remake Westworld (1973) since the 1990s. In 1996, Michael Crichton, the Writer and Director of the film, met with J.J. Abrams, wanting him to write the screenplay, but Abrams was unable to come up with a way he thought worked. In 2000, Joel Silver was announced to be working on the remake. Silver hired Richard D'Ovidio to write the screenplay. In 2002, Arnold Schwarzenegger was announced to star in and produce the film with John Brancato and Michael Ferris writing a new screenplay. Schwarzenegger subsequently left the project when he was elected Governor of California. In 2005, Tarsem Singh was announced as the director. In 2007, Quentin Tarantino claimed he had been offered the film. In 2008, Billy Ray was hired to write a new screenplay. In 2013, Abrams pitched the idea of a television series to Creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. As Nolan told Deadline: "J.J. came to Lisa and me with the suggestion that Westworld wasn't to be realized as a movie, since it had been ripped off so many times, and inspired a number of science fiction films, rather a television series from the robots' point of view."

Outstanding dialog, acting and story line
29 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pay attention, this series explores some very subtle story lines. I was extremely impressed when they introduced the bicameral mind concept when considering consciousness. That is one of the more important concepts when considering the origins of consciousness. I hope they explore this idea in greater detail and especially its implications related to physics. It is rare indeed to have a fictional work undertake such a complex topic without trivializing it. I definitely have to compliment the writers for undertaking such a complex topic and I hope they continue to explore the implications.

Again, IMDb thinks I should add additional lines to my review which is ridiculous. I have offered a clear and concise review and they want an arbitrary number of lines, what kind of idiot makes this a requirement?
