The first episode of WestWorld has been highly anticipated since its announcement months ago. Maybe you’ve read some of the reviews. Maybe you’ve even visited DiscoverWestWorld, the website created by HBO to get people more acquainted.
The first season of WestWorld itself is said to have cost $100 million, so you can bet that HBO has some serious expectations of its own. The good news is that most of what people are saying is really good.
Check out the synopsis for Season 1, Episode 1 “The Original” below.
Episode 1, Season 1 Synopsis:
Synopsis (from Reddit):
As another day of fantasy plays out in Westworld – a vast, remote park where guests pay top dollar to share wild-west adventures with android “hosts” – top programmer Bernard Lowe alerts park founder Dr. Robert Ford about incidents of aberrant behavior cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts. Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher’s daughter named Dolores encounters a gunslinger named Teddy in the street – but their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black and, later, by a supporting host’s unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.
