    As a fan of Inception, the Matrix, Fight Club, etc this series has my name written all over it.

    Anyone else?


    * And yes I'm aware of the 1973 film it's based on.

    Super excited. Loved the movie. Loved the simpsons spoof. It and the eric andre show are only things that have me interested in tv at the moment.

    Not familiar with it at all other than seeing previews on HBO but

    Could end up going either way for me though.

    Sounds like the pilot might be a bit of a mess based on early word from critics, but I don't give a fuck. It's either going to be fantastic or my kind of bizarre mess, either way I'm in.

    Very excited. Sci fi, western, JJ Abrams, Crichton? Can't be much better than that.

    Just finished the first episode and enjoyed it; it's definitely up my alley. I love the modern music played through the player piano (black hole sun, paint it black).

    I'm in. I'll keep watching because the premise it right up my alley and see if it turns into something really good. I was intigued by a lot of the clips from future shows they ran in the season teaser.

    I thought it was one of the better pilots I've seen in awhile. It's looking like HBO has another hit on their hands, and I'm excited to see where it goes.

    I have no idea how they're going to get five seasons out of this world though.

    Pilot was awesome.

    Since there's something like 2000 robots in Westworld, I'm sure they can pull new stories for a while.

    Looks like I'll be watching this soon. The previews have looked pretty interesting, good to see some good reviews in here.

    Really enjoyed the first episode. Loved the use of modern-ish songs in the orchestral "musak" form. Rad.

    Based on my thorough review this show is a combination of:
    The Truman Show
    50 First Dates
    The Hunger Games
