HBO’s new Westworld show is excellent. I can say that as I have seen the first four episodes – read my review – and I cannot wait to see what happens next. The one-hour drama series is inspired by the film of the same name, written and directed by Michael Crichton.

The show is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.

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 (Jeffrey Wright) alerts park founder Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) about incidents of aberrant behaviour cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts. Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher’s daughter named Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) encounters a gunslinger named Teddy (James Marsden) in the street – but their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black (Ed Harris) and, later, by a supporting host’s unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.

Jonathan Nolan directs the pilot episode and the show stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, Rodrigo Santoro, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Shannon Woodward, Angela Sarafyan, Ben Barnes, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Clifton Collins Jr., and Simon Quarterman.

Westworld will be 10 episodes that begins on 2nd October 2016.
