So a few months back I wrote a blog about how I was going to watch Westworld whenever it comes out. Turns out it came out this past Sunday, October 2nd. Who would have thunk!? Obviously I had no idea it was on Sunday and didn’t get a chance to watch until last night.
To say Westworld episode 1 would be everything I thought it would be is an understatement. It is even more confusing than I could imagine. I tried to explain it to people at work and I flat out couldn’t. I said things like “uhh it takes place in current times but they built a whole world in the past during western period that has automations and roadmaps to different scenarios.” Honestly, as I typed that and read it out-loud I don’t even know what that means but that’s exactly my point.
Show is confusing as fuck and I love it. It is extremely unique and the cast is exceptional so far. It is pretty much a mixture of Hunger Games, Jurassic Park, & Wild Wild West sprinkled in with God knows what. Robot Cowboys and corporate dystopia essentially. I do see a few ways the show will go and how I think it will go.
Also this needs to be said…… I don’t care what anyone says, James Marsden is handsome as fuck. Guy might have stolen episode 1 just on looks alone.
Here are some trailers to hopefully explain the show a little more than I ever could.
