Do you miss Game of Thrones? Well, you’ll have to wait until June of 2017 for it’s return, but Westworld might be a good alternative until then! It premieres tonight (October 2nd) on HBO.
If the name sounds familiar, you may be thinking of the original 1973 film of the same name. This HBO series is a reimagining of that story starring Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Ed Harris. It’s also produced by JJ Abrams, who you may of heard of!
Basically Westworld is about an authentic Western theme park filled with lifelike androids who exist only to play a part in the fantasies of guests. It’s definitely a sci-fi, and as you can imagine, all is not what it seems to be!
That’s just a real quick and dirty description of the show. Speaking of dirty, just like Game of Thrones, there are adult themes.
