Westworld Episode 1 The Original Review
“Why can’t the Westworld hosts kill humans? What’s the deal with milk and flies? Is that Soundgarden in the background? Is Dr. Ford a robot? What the hell is going on in the Westworld series debut?
You’ve got Westworld questions, and we’ve got Westworld answers. Hosts Roger Roper and Dick Ebert saddle up with their new sidekick, Gene Lyons, to explore the vast Westworld frontiers in search of justice and the ultimate truth behind Delos Destinations’ corporate motives.
Westworld! Where the saloon girls are all 10’s and the rye whiskey is best served warm. For $40,000 a day, we can all immerse ourselves in the lawlessness of the Old West. Westworld asks, how each of us would indulge our otherwise unspeakable appetites for senseless violence and transgressive sex, without moral scruple or legal consequence. The series is remarkably stark in its depiction of the cruelty underlying these appetites. All but vanished are the “shoot-out with a bandito” type scenarios of the campy 1973 movie. Instead, tourist’s regales in watching their artificial victims wriggle in the throes of death, only to want a souvenir photograph to take home. “Now, that’s what I call a vacation!.”
