    Big fan of the original work. Yul Breenyr was perfect in it.

    Didn't Crighton write the one in the 70s?

    Christopher Nolans brother that helps him with his films will be the director. so its safe to assume it will be the bees knees

    HBO’s ‘Westworld’ Shuts Down Production, Still Targeting 2016 Premiere (EXCLUSIVE)
    Production has been temporarily shut down on HBO’s highly anticipated drama “Westworld,” sources tell Variety.

    The ambitious project, which doesn’t have an official premiere date, was shuttered for two months so executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy can catch up on the final four scripts. Production, which was originally scheduled to wrap in November, is now set to resume in March.

    “As we head into the final phase of production on ‘Westworld,’ we’ve made the decision to take a brief hiatus in order to get ahead of the writing,” said HBO in a statement.

    Sources tell Variety the shutdown is temporary and that HBO is confident that the series will make its targeted premiere date. HBO has yet to specify a date beyond saying it will air in 2016.

    The one-hour drama, inspired by the 1973 film starring Yul Brynner, is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” The series stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton.

    Getting very excited for this.

    Feels like Jurassic Park + The Matrix.

    Apparently it was a good, groundbreaking movie back in the 70s. Might give it a watch this weekend.

    Reviews on the first 4 episodes

    -------

    IGN: "HBO's Westworld makes a strong first impression with its excellent premiere, as a theme park provides the setting for a fascinating exploration of the human -- and not so human -- psyche." [9/10]

    TV Fanatic: "Westworld is a wide, sweeping drama re-introducing us to the world Michael Crichton brought to life once before for the big screen in 1973. It's a compelling and thrilling look at what it means to be human in this technologically driven world. The stories revolve around the Gods, or park creators and engineers, the park employees, the hosts (AI) and the guests, called newcomers by the AI. " [5/5]

    Nerdist: "We’re overdue for a series that explores the idea of reality and what constitutes something as “real” in this way: the labyrinthine nature of desire and excess and creation and morality, when thrown into the frontier (both literally and metaphorically) challenges the audience to see themselves—and the human race—for what we maybe are or could be. " [5/5]

    The Guardian: "But for those of us who just like story – lots and lots of story! – Westworld will hit the spot as hard as GoT ever did. Gosh, there’s a lot going on. There’s the real world full of robot-wranglers, some of whom are jostling for position inside whatever just-possibly-malevolent company owns the park, others of whom are busy tinkering with their charges’ software and trying to decide whether to make the skinjobs more realistic or quit while they’re ahead."

    Collider: "Like Game of Thrones, Westworld is a sprawling story, but it’s never as disparate as the world of Westeros and what lies beyond the Narrow Sea. What matters here is the notion that everything is contained, intimate, and carefully crafted, and fans of Crichton will immediately feel the familiarity with his most famous stories’ themes: where what we overly-confident Homo sapiens create and try and control quickly spirals out beyond our abilities." [4/5 - Very Good]

    like that it's getting good reviews because I want it to be badass. don't like when they compare it to another show that's completely different. what other similarities does it have to GoT besides being on HBO?

    "Sprawling". That's the only way it was compared. Odd to have a hangup because of that line. People compared Thrones to The Wire early because of that very thing.

    HBO needs this to be good so badly

    They've got nothing left when GoT wraps up

    And GoT was the first good thing they've had since Sopranos/Wire

    Boardwalk Empire was great. Regardless of critical acclaim, True Blood was a huge hit. And of course there's True Detective season 1.

    But they definitely need this to be good and popular.
