Review: Westworld Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy; HBO

Westworld (Television Series); Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy; HBO, First episode date: October 2, 2016; based on work by Michael Crichton
Television Shorts


The show is Jurassic Park but with humans by Michael Crichton. 

I binge-watched the first season and there's so much going on yet it's best described by the previous sentence.

At its best, Westworld has fascinating dialogue and tackles heady philosophical questions, particularly creation and evolutionary thought.

At its worst, Westworld is weighed down by the framework and setting and the inability of its creators to develop a world not anchored by white supremacy.

Recommendation: LOW-MEDIUM
