You can’t play God without being acquainted with the Devil.
Westworld is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton’s movie of the same name and it will simply blow your mind. It has action, romance, violence and drama but more importantly it captivates with its intelligence. Indeed, the plot is extremely complex and smart and as if this wasn’t enough, it has an all-star cast featuring Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris.
A captivating corporate dystopia filled with robot cowboys.
The robots are the heroes.
Westworld raises a lot of questions. What is artificial consciousness? Can we do everything and anything to a robot without any repercussions? Are we seeing the evolution of sin?…
Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world, the disarray. I choose to see the Beauty. To believe there is an order to our days. A purpose. I know things will work out the way they’re meant to.
As we enter the park, we see the extent of the human appetite. Every instinct, no matter how noble or depraved can be indulged. Where does it take us? In the end, the robots seem more human than the visitors and it’s not hard to pity them. They become our main focus and we wish their freedom. Indeed, they are so sophisticated and yet they are treated like livestock.
Of course, it is only a matter of time before a major incident occurs because technology is never failsafe.
It’s basically Jurassic Park with robots in cowboy hats.
A compelling clash of genres.
Westworld is an incredibly smart TV show. All the episodes are full on and require attention. The series is so well made that it feels like every detail is important. I found that I needed to be 100% focused while watching. The plot has so many layers it might make your head spin. If you like puzzles or philosophy classes, this show is definitely for you.
It is also visually stunning. The décor/set is beautiful but it’s more than that. It’s the beauty we find in a plot with such violence and intelligence it’s hard to look away. I think it’s one of the best TV shows ever made. Don’t miss it!
