The sci-fi western series from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy was inspired by the 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name and is set at a Wild West theme park created by Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) with human-like androids where guests are encouraged to indulge their fantasies and desires.Written by
The "Westworld" park is set in the 1870's. This becomes clear in Season #2 when Dolores is at "Fort Forlorn", inside which is stationed the US Army's 25th Infantry Regiment, as evident by the flags in the fort. The 25th were stationed in various places in Texas and New Mexico for the entire 1870's until they were transferred to the Dakota territory in 1880. See more »
There is beauty in this world. Arnold made it that way, but people like you keep spreading over it like a stain!
Okay, I don't know who the fuck this Arnold is, but your world was built for me and people like me. Not for you.
Then someone's got to burn it clean.

This show is so far perfect. The story is intriguing, the visuals are beautiful and the acting is incredible.
The previous reviewer who said the violence is unnecessary has missed the point in my opinion. The violence is very much needed. It is there to make you feel uncomfortable, because it is that inner dark side and battle between good and evil (and more often than not the middle ground between) that is at the very epicenter of the human condition.This is what the show is often commenting on and this is what makes this show so interesting, thought provoking and ultimately entertaining.
If it carries on in the same vein we will have a modern day classic on our hands.
