A Western-themed futuristic theme park, populated with artificial intelligence, allows high-paying guests to live out their fantasies with no consequences or retaliation from the android hosts, until now.
Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park -- which is looked after by robotic "hosts" -- allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park's guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged.
During times of danger in the show, there is a series of two notes that are played (on a natural scale) from Middle E to Middle D sharp. These two notes are famous in the Western genre of movies. They are particularly known as the first two notes from "Man with a Harmonica," which was the theme of the character known as Harmonica who was played by Charles Bronson in Once Upon a Time in the West.

While the size of the park is never mentioned in the series, several characters are shown riding for hours (or days) on horseback and still remaining in the confines of the facility. This would seemingly make the park extended over several thousand square miles or larger.
At this size, this would make the park larger than at least two of the United States (Rhode Island and Delaware) and certainly far too large to monitor by the minimal staff shown, or in the manners that the series portrays it being. See more »
I just finished up season one and I couldn't wait for it to be over.
I don't get how this series is rated so high? It's garbage. I started listing out all of the moronic events but there were just too many. One dumb thing after another, after another.
Nothing made sense and in the end it was just such a waste of time. I know there are heavy hitters involved with this like Jonathan Nolan but after seeing this I have lost all respect for him. Unfortunately, he has a past resume that will allow him to do more projects in the future. If I was his boss I would fire him immediately, but one can only dream.
There were some bright spots like Anthony Hopkins but the way the story was told and directed it didn't matter who the actors were. It was so bad and poorly done that there really shouldn't be a second season. However, there will be. Unbelievable.
I really don't get it. Such garbage.
