Westworld Season 1: The Maze DVD coverHBO’s brilliant new sci-fi series expands on the core themes of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film of the same name, as well as questions raised in Blade Runner.

Ostensibly Jurassic Park with artificial humans, Westworld is a futuristic theme park that allows guests to pay ridiculous sums of money to indulge in their wildest western fantasies. The park is filled with autonomous robotic hosts all going through the motions dictated by their programming, and the intricate narratives written for them.

However, unlike Yul Brynner’s android gunslinger in the original movie, they’re designed with advanced AI and prosthetics, making them indistinguishable from humans. But what happens when these hosts begin to question their own existence? That’s just one intriguing thread in a show that ruminates on the nature of consciousness and the danger of playing God, while spinning an intriguing central mystery with more twists than a strand of DNA.

Featuring a top notch cast – including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris and Thandie Newton – and stellar production values, Westworld is must-see TV.
