5/5

I was never a big fan of westerns, however this series deals with a more somber tone. The advent of machine learning progressing into artificial intelligence is the holy grail of robotics, and Westworld encapsulates this journey as shown through the eyes of Dolores. The characters, directing and plot make this a thrilling experience that leaves the viewer wanting more at the end of every episode. It raises many ethical questions and hypotheses, but address them in a realistic manner yet leaving room for the imagination to ponder on the possibilities that could be. When the nature of the fabric of reality and consciousness is questioned, Westworld tries to show us how a machine would respond and what it would do. Human evolution begets that our success has come upon the fate of other species, this show paints a similar picture in favour of the ‘hosts’ as they are more advanced, and do not die. I recommend to watch this!
