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.

I think that's why I watched it in the first place I no joke prefer the JP novel to the movie

It's pretty dated by acting and filming standards now but still a good movie. Once you watch it you'll scratch your head as to how they're gonna stretch it to 5-7 seasons. I'm guessing they're gonna just take the idea as a seed and go in it's own direction. I'm hoping there be more than 3 "Worlds".

There was something weird going on between Fincher and HBO because he had another show in development just kind of blow up at the same time.

In this (pretty good) article http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine...e-robot/497531/ the author mentions having seen the first three episodes, so reviewers probably all got those.

Just a matter of them being leaked.

Does James Marsden just...not age? Edit: Nvm, he's only 42. For some reason I thought he was a good deal older than that.

Show looks good, I hope it does enough numbers to stick around for a few seasons.

I was listening to a thing on CBC the other day and they had a clip from a comedy show for a guy who played one of the ambulance attendants in The Silence of the Lambs. This guy was by no means a professional iirc and he kept screwing up the few lines he had, mostly because they were under intense pressure to get the scene shot quickly but also because he was working with Anthony Hopkins.

I guess Hopkins was a complete gentleman, putting up with having to shoot a simple scene ~25 times because the extra couldn't get his 4 3 2 1 line correct (I guess they were cutting lines from the script on the spot), and only mentioned to the director that the lights were making the fake skin and blood mask very uncomfortable (they had to keep redoing the fake skin and blood mask each time they reshot the scene)

I listened to that too. The guy was a solid storyteller and Hopkins seemed like a class act.

So someone mentioned earlier that in a kind of twist Ed Harris's character isn't a robot like we assumed. I'm not sure if they were being serious, but it would be kinda cool if he was like some ex-partner of Hopkins who had a change of heart.

From that Atlantic article: In perhaps the show’s most wicked inversion, Brynner’s bald, middle-aged gunslinger is explicitly echoed in a figure played by Ed Harris; but whereas Brynner’s character was an android who killed human beings, Harris’s is a human being who takes gruesome pleasure in murdering androids.

Not sure if it even needs spoiling, but better safe than sorry I gues.

From the second? trailer, it looks like (possible twist/spoiler) Jimmi Simpson's character might be a guest that's also an android? It looks like there was a quick shot of him chugging milk while getting shot in a saloon, and it looked like the milk was spraying out of the bullet holes.

When they first released casting info, I figured Marsten would be taking the Brolin role from the original, while Simpson would play the Richard Benjamin role, but from these trailers and early reviews, I'm not so sure.

I expect they're going to be very different animals. The original movie is a fairly self contained storyline, I think this is going to be a lot more spanning (and I can see it spreading to the other -worlds, Medieval World, Rome World, etc.).

Just FYI, Zaggitz was really chomping at the bit to do this thread (he's a big fan of Jonah Nolan's last show, Person of Interest) (BTW if any of you in this thread haven't seen Person of Interest, the gently caress is wrong with you?). So if you don't want to do the work, he might be willing to start a new thread with an effort OP.
