    Anyone watching? I think it's one of the best shows I've seen in a while.

    SciFi + Cowboys = :yay:

    Just watched the pilot episode last night. Blew me away. So many interesting areas to explore and it's just beautiful to look at.

    i've found it interesting at times, pretty meh at others

    been like 5 episodes i think and motives for main characters are still fuzzy

    i've liked all the scenes with Hannibal, his arc is interesting

    overall it seems like really slow build up so far, i'm not sure if this is a 1 season and done kind of thing but if so..

    I saw this on SyFy (still hate that channel name... should still be Sci-Fi). It was pretty good. And co-starred James Brolin, father of Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men, Men In Black 3 (as Tommy Lee Jones character0, etc).

    other than setting and title the movie and the film don't share much in common from everything i've read(haven't seen the film)

    It's not Game of Thrones good, but it is good HBO tv.

    I particularly like Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, and Ed Harris. And Evan Rachel Wood when she is showing side boob with nipple and butt crack. I'm sure the ladies don't mind the show either...

    yeah but i wouldn't have known what GoT would develop into after just an episode or two(just now reading the books)

    i think this has serious potential(granted i've only watched the pilot)

    having no idea what direction exactly the HBO show will take... I'd say it's very similar to the movie so far. Obviously the movie is condensed, there is very little of the behind the scenes stuff. Similar storyline with the 2 people that visit Westworld and one is all "lighten up" while the other takes longer to acclimate to the fact it's a fake/android world.

    I guess that's true for any big show, like the Walking Dead. I seriously doubt they (actors,producers,etc) nor the fans of the first season would've seen it turn into the #1 TV show in all of TV history.

    I do really like Westworld, I don't see it hitting that type of elite TV level, nor it personally entertaining me (as much as Game of Thrones), but it's very very good for sure. I particularly like that it is fairly niche story, setting but is getting this large production.
