    The first episode was fucking amazing. Agree that you should not watch the sneak peek at the end of the show; spoils a lot, but man does it get the hype train going. Casting is exceptional as well; big fan of Ed Harris and Anthony Hopkins, and Thandie Newton is perfect as cast.

    I checked it out after seeing such unanimous praise in this thread. It was entertaining enough, and I'm excited to see where they go with all the possible storylines. The music was also god tier, especially Paint it Black and Blackhole Sun. The episode dragged a bit in a few parts, but I understand that they have a lot of things to introduce to the audience in the first episode. I have high hopes for the world and characters that were established.

    Just watched, show has a lot of potential. Watched this on my new TV and I agree that the visuals were spectacular.

    Spoiler: show
    I wonder if we will see any other 'worlds' besides this Western cowboy world that things are currently in. Would be interesting if each season is focused on a different one.

    This is fairly major FUTURE SHOW spoiler, it's semi-revealed in the preview. Full warning on this, it won't ruin the show but it's major. YOU WERE WARNED.

    There are other worlds. Medieval and Roman. Possibly others as well. This is based on the Westworld movie and the sequel. Also the brief show they did in the 70's.

    I'm pretty sure this in the same world as the original movie, seeing as they reference an incident 30 years prior.

    Found it, because I'd wanted to hear it, too. Keeps some of the sound effects, but gets rid of the dialogue.

    Is this titled incorrectly? It's still 2016 right?

    Enjoyed this a lot. Would recommend to anyone that wants drama/mystery/scifi stuff. I don't really watch a ton of shows anymore, so more good stuff is cool with me.

    was interesting enough to give it a few more episodes. god damn evan rachel wood is unbelievably gorgeous

    I liked it too. Am I the only one who noticed some strange visual tics in certain scenes, almost as if there was something (intentionally) wrong with the filming? I know it's not just me because my bf noticed it too. I wonder if it's just a trick to make the viewer feel more uneasy, or if it's for some other reason. Could just be accidental I guess, since it's very subtle.

    It's intentional. I saw an article posted on reddit earlier in the week about how they edited the show to display the glitches in the hosts.

    So episode two is a lot better than the first. Especially if you think things were a little slow to start. I really felt like they nailed it this episode and I already want more.

    Episode 2 thoughts and spoilers:
    Spoiler: show
    Sooo many things in this episode I already want to know about. What's the maze? What's Anthony Hopkins planning by shooting down dudebro's storyline? What's going to happen to the head prostitute?

    I also really liked how this episode setup entering Westworld. I'm trying to wrap around my head how the train thing could actually work out in real life. Ugh. I want more already.

    Apparently HBO released early on HBO now, HBO go, and HBN On demand because they would be competing with debate Sunday.
