We are less than a month from the October 2nd, premier of Westworld on HBO, and fans haven’t been this excited for a series on the cable network since they rolled out Game of Thrones. the jury is still out on the new adaptation of the 1970’s work from Michael Crichton, but with a cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Ben Barnes, Jimmi Simpson, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Luke Hemsworth, and Clifton Collins, Jr., it definitely deserves at least a three episode probationary slot in your viewing schedule.

The one-hour drama series Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.
