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!



A highly recommended TV show

I must admit that I really don’t watch much TV shows. Most likely I can count the shows I’ve seen in past 10 years with the fingers of my hands. But since I’m really interested in all the new technology advancements that are already changing and are going to change our everyday lives one show caught my attention and now I can honestly say that it’s definitely one of the best I’ve seen. It’s called Black Mirror (IMDB link) and so far 4 seasons have been made. It’s described as “An anthology series exploring a twisted, high-tech world where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide.” Each episode contains a separate story about how technology affects our lives and sometimes brings out the darker sides of us. Some episodes are good and some are just sublime! Most of all they are all intriguing so after you’ve watched one it’s guaranteed that you’ll find yourself thinking about how you may have acted and how the real world would look like if it would be as in the show. I must warn you that some of the episodes are really straight on and can even be slightly disturbing but it all adds to the effect. Since today’s technology is advancing so rapidly it’s quite difficult to imagine how our world looks like in 10, 20, 30 years from now but the directors of this show have definitely done a good job and given us a lot to think about. Go and check it out :)!
