‘Westworld’ SciFi series Premiered Yesterday on HBO

The original Westworld movie premiered in 1973. Yesterday, October 2, a new ‘Westworld’ series premiered on HBO. The story is of a ‘role playing’ theme park, Westworld, with an old west setting. Most of the Westward inhabitants are robots who are set to portray a predetermined story line. Guests, however, can choose their own paths and explore their fantasies.

I missed last night’s premier, but will be catching one of the rebroadcasts this week. With all of the interest now in robotics, and the human like robots that have recently been produced, this series has a different impact than it did in the 70s. And as you would expect, part of the on-going story stems from the fact that, after 30 years in operation, something goes wrong.
