A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin -- exploring a world in which every human appetite, not matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. Exploring what it means to be human through the eyes of the lifelike AI "hosts" in the park, the series investigates the boundaries of an exotic world set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past. Meticulously crafted and artfully designed. Westworld offers its guests an unparalleled, immersive world where they have the freedom to become who they've always wanted to be -- or who they never knew they were. No rules, no laws, no judgment. Live without limits.

Don't get me wrong, I watched it and generally enjoyed it, but I'm not holding my breath for the second season. I think this would have probably been much better as a feature-length film. Unless the second season does show some major improvements, I'm not sure I'll continue to follow this series. If you're looking for an in-between show, check it out and see if it floats your boat!

Kind of what an R rated version of Disneyland for adults might be like if they used robots to play with. Very layered and hard to follow at times, but always intriguing and satisfying
