This science fiction western series from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy was inspired by Michael Crichton's Westworld (1973) and is set at a Wild West theme park created by Dr. Robert Ford (Sir Anthony Hopkins) with human-like androids, where guests are encouraged to indulge their fantasies and desires.Written by
In season one, episode four, "Dissonance Theory", William and Logan storm into a ranch that's been taken over by thieves and bandits. The wood stove clearly says "Indianapolis", which refers to a company located in Indianapolis, Indiana, a real company which made wood stoves like the ones seen in the show. However, this particular model with the side-flue feature wouldn't have been made until later in the 1800s, possibly early 1900s. However, it doesn't matter since the setting of the town of Westworld is fictional, so it doesn't have to be historically accurate. See more »
Man in Black:
Aw, yeah, cue the waterworks. About time you realized the futility of your situation.
I'm not crying for myself. I'm crying for you. They say that great beasts once roamed this world. As big as mountains. Yet all that's left of them is bone and amber. Time undoes even the mightiest of creatures. Just look at what it's done to you. One day you will perish. You will lie with the rest of your kind in the dirt. Your dreams forgotten, your horrors effaced. Your bones will turn to sand. And upon that...

1st season was is a 9. Second season is 3. Hence the 6.
The first season was novel and paced very well, along with the appropriate character developments. The second season was entirely something else. It was so bad it reminded me of Lost - which I stopped watching during the 3rd season. In Westworld, the pacing was gone. Useless flashbacks that had no importance to the story almost every five minutes ended any momentum it had. In fact, the flashbacks seemed as if somebody was just trying to ''stretch'' the show so that it would get a thrid season. As far as AI shows are concerned. I have a preference for Humans. After the second season, I couldn't see how they could have continued it with a third, but they did - and did they ever.
