    fuckin A look at that all star cast, can't come fast enough

    The HBO rendition of “Westworld” is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.”

    The drama, based on Michael Crichton's 1973 film and written by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, stars Anthony Hopkins in his first series-regular role as an inventor who runs an adult amusement park populated by lifelike robots. James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris also star.

    Very intriguing and a fantastic cast. I remember seeing the original movie when I was a kid, Yul Brunner was the scariest motherfucker to me.

    Too bad Michael Crichton couldn't have written this film after having watched the matrix. You can see how it influenced later works of his such as Jurassic park, but I think Crichton knew that the future of entertainment was going to be fully virtual. If he was alive today he would have directed it/written it as a cyber park or only using robots BECAUSE humans "normally" use virtual worlds and this promises "real danger".. I think Michael Crichton would have not wanted what is surely just a Hollywood cash grab, damn the science, damn the cutting edge.

    I probably watched the original ten times as a kid-- great movie. It was the original Terminator IMHO. Yul was relentless in the original.

    I do think that humans will always have a preference for "real" instead of virtual experiences. Virtual experiences are nice because there is a measure of control, but I think if you could apply that same experience to the "real", then people would probably prefer that.

    Jonathan Nolan is showrunning that, it's most likely gonna be bland and mediocre.

    They won't have any issues. Worst case scenarios, they hire some porn stars who have some iota of acting skill.

    They had a few real porn stars on GoT aside from Sibel Kikeli. As that article noted it was the fucking UNION that got all butthurt, not the actual extras themselves, since most those chicks would prolly suck real HBO cock to get on any HBO show.

    The explicit consent form itself wouldn’t pass standards reviews at a broadcast network as it recites that the performer "may be required to perform genital-to-genital touching, simulate oral sex with hand-to-genital touching, contort to form a table-like shape while being fully nude, pose on all fours while others who are fully nude ride on your back, [and] ride on someone's back while you are both fully nude."

    I don't think I've ever been this excited for a series. There seems to be very little buzz surrounding this show.

    Finally HBO has a show coming up that seems like it could be great. Looks really good, here's hoping.

    Shit looks good. I remember the origional movie pretty well. There is definitely some material there to exploit post internet and matrix and all the talk of singularity.

    not super enthusiastic about this, the trailer was pretty tame and the show seems to be "being a sex robot sucks, lets kill all humans". I hope they go deeper than that but the fact that the show halted production for 4 months to do rewrites isn't exactly a positive sign. Still, an insanely talented cast, really hoping HBO's first sci fi can be good and kickstart a new block of scifi shows on premium channels.

    I dunno, this seems pretty simple to be a good long-term HBO show. The plot changes are what keep the seasons of the past HBO shows interesting and I feel like this is just going to be 'get it over with' type of a story.

    I think I read this book forever ago, isn't it basically just robot rebellion number 83?
