Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic "hosts." However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human 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; but there is a price to be paid.
The taxidermied water buffalo head, which hangs above the bar in the saloon, is an African Cape water buffalo. Water buffalo are not related to the American species bison, which are sometimes commonly called "American Buffalo". See more »
Pay attention, this series explores some very subtle story lines. I was
extremely impressed when they introduced the bicameral mind concept
when considering consciousness. That is one of the more important
concepts when considering the origins of consciousness. I hope they
explore this idea in greater detail and especially its implications
related to physics. It is rare indeed to have a fictional work
undertake such a complex topic without trivializing it. I definitely
have to compliment the writers for undertaking such a complex topic and
I hope they continue to explore the implications.
Again, IMDb thinks I should add additional lines to my review which is
ridiculous. I have offered a clear and concise review and they want an
arbitrary number of lines, what kind of idiot makes this a requirement?
