    Westworld (HBO miniseries)

    one of my favorite Sci Fi / horror movies of all time, and if you've never seen it, drop what you're doing and watch it. When I heard they were making this into a dark HBO series, I tried not to get my hopes too high... but they've just released the new teaser (or at least I just saw it for the first time), and the tone is spot on.

    Between the general awesomeness of Westworld, Evan Rachel Wood's starring role, and the sexy legal action taken against the show...I am SO psyched for this, lol.But, seriously, it looks amazing.

    Me too. For several reasons, chief among them that it's damn time HBO finally has something science fiction in the same league as Game of Thrones or their other major shows.

    I was going to post that video. Wow... having Roy Orbison sing just makes it even better. ERW is so going to be great in this. After all, she's part of my league of 7 favorite actresses that I dub as my own version of THE BULLET CLUB.

    I thought that was really fucking good. The dude who played Dolores' father was awesome as is one of the corporate managers who is such a bitch. Ed Harris as usual is awesome while ERW is also brilliant.

    Great start! Excited to see where this will go. They sure expanded from Crichton's original. But me and my girl are loving it so far.

    Such strong performances throughout.

    The pilot was great.

    Hopefully it's a hit, the numbers are promising so far.

    ... woah.

    That's the best pilot I've seen since Hannibal, maybe. It not only felt like it was a show well into its prime and not just starting, but it felt like I had been watching it for ages and wasn't just starting. That's so rare. How they pulled me in so fast and so deeply, I don't even know. I'm fucking sold, wholesale. That's for sure.

    Totally. I was surprised he survived that scene at the end, which was great and incredibly well acted (everyone, not just Hopkins). He also snapped my brain with his intro scene. I wish he'd do television far more often.

    well, this is the greatest shit ever, and I haver a super crush on Dolores, even if she's a robot

    The player piano has been a great touch too.... I really liked when it started playing "Black Hole Sun"

    I think they played Radiohead's "No Surprises" in that piano.

    I thought the second episode really solidified it for me. Great stuff so far.
