Roughly a month ago I wrote about a great TV show called Black Mirror. Now a while back we discovered another extremely intriguing series called Westworld. It differs from Black Mirror in a sense that all the episodes are a part of a continues timeline but it’s without a doubt not less fascinating. I just love when a movie, book or a TV series makes you think about a bigger picture. Makes you question deep, perhaps unanswerable questions bigger than the show or the book itself. Westworld is definitely one of these. So far there has been one series with the second one starting in April this year. After each episode you get more and more drawn into the future world it represents and the questions it proposes. You just can’t wait to watch the next part and in our case we watched the whole series within a matter of days. Besides the bigger picture that it represents there are several different plot lines going on leaving you wondering about how they will end and how do they all fit together. It’s really complex, yet in the end it all makes sense. Sort of :). I’m definitely not the only one who got my thinking activated by this show since YouTube and the whole internet is full of articles and videos explaining or guessing what was the whole idea of the show and how it will continue in series 2. Be warned not to read/watch them before you have seen all the episodes since most contain spoilers and you don’t want to mess up your experience. Although I believe they don’t make much sense if you haven’t seen the show yourself :). Either way if you’re interested in AI, the mystery of consciousness, technology and a great piece of magnificent acting and a thrilling plot line, I strongly recommend you to go and check it out!
