HoW is a not so great copy-cat of Deadwood that began to lose actors as the series zombied on and became unwatchable

Isn't that an overtly comic-book show? I found it pretty unwatchable from the start and wouldn't think of Hell on Wheels and Deadwood as related in anything but setting, but maybe I just didn't give it enough of a chance?

19th century english is torture to read and hear unless you're a loving guy named samuel clemens for some god damned reason and ive been repressing my hate for the antiquated speaking in deadwood forever. The show is so good but not everyone needed to trip on ten dollar words all the loving time! Its terrible!

I recently binged through Deadwood and I'm super excited for Westworld.

Also Deadwood was great for the unusual dialogue and the fierceness that Swearengen delivered his lines.

I read series review for Deadwood and the author called it "Shakespeare in the mud" and that seemed accurate enough a description for the unique dialogue that made it so great a show.

Carnivale ended way too soon, but iirc the creator had something like 8 seasons planned or something, someone should have told him HBO was making the show

Hell on Wheels became much better when they dropped most of the generic western crap and started focusing on building the railroad.

Colm Meaney is the only reason to watch that show. It's still not enough.

I'm old enough to remember Dream On in the early 90's, it was very good for its day and hilarious (and bonus boobies). It and The Larry Sanders Show owned the 90's.

Is this a one season thing? Or are they shooting for series?

Rewatched the original movie today for the first time in 20 years. I didn't know Michael Crichton wrote it when i saw it before, but knowing that now it's pretty obviously similar to his other works a theme park malfunctions and guests are trapped as a Velociraptor Yul Brynner chases them down.

I think they're hoping it will replace GoT, so multiple seasons are definitely a strong possibility.

At the same time: it's HBO and they hate spending money on sets/costumes, that they can't buy at a department store in Manhattan, for more than two seasons sooooo............

It comes down to ratings and reviews. If it earns them critical acclaim, it will almost certainly get a second season just because. But if it isn't pulling in subscriptions and hype (as in: are people having WW viewing parties ala Got/TWD?) it will get the can.

It has a good cast and is made by Jonathan Nolan so I think HBO are aiming high with it.

Also out of all those famous people, I'm weirdly mostly looking forward to seeing Jimmi Simpson.

Is this a current sentiment? I know the price tag for Rome, Deadwood, and Carnivale is what led all three to be canned before anyone realized DVD sales were a thing. But I thought HBO had learned from their mistakes.

It wasn’t about getting the first 10 [episodes] done, it was about mapping out what the next 5 or 6 years are going to be. We wanted everything in line so that when the very last episode airs and we have our show finale, five or seven years down the line, we knew how it was going to end the first season.

Next time you watch the original Westworld just remember that it's written by Michael Crichton, and see if you notice any common themes amongst it and Jurassic Park.
