On June 20, HBO released a teaser trailer to a show coming October 2016 called Westworld. The show is based on the 1973 movie of the same name by Michael Crichton. Both the show and the movie are western action dramas where Androids exist and are indistinguishable from humans. From the movie, the Androids work in a theme park with different themes or worlds a la Disneyland but are programmed to act according to the themed on the park they work in. Problems arise when some robots begin to malfunction and cause problems within the park itself and among the people running the park. The idea of the show and the world seem to be a cross between Blade Runner and Total Recall. If produced as well as either movie, or even on par with Deadwood and Game of Thrones, the show looks to be an interesting look into the human psyche and the problems in merging man and machine.
