    I think it's been hinted that this is on an island somewhere, not within the United States. As for PETA... there are no animals. Everything is manufactured... EVERYTHING. As hinted at by the horse in the title sequence and moments like when Dr. Ford stops that snake.

    If you do that, they're going to respond naturally according to their personality. If you walk up to them during a heist, more likely than not all you're just going to get is a funny look from them and they tell you to frak off. It all depends you, on if you're playing it white hat or black hat. If you're playing it white hat, you'll find a story thread to follow that leads to a romantic liaison with one of the characters. Or if you're playing it black hat, you're probably going to be doing stuff like what happened to Dolores at her farm. But they're not just going to blindly follow your commands, they're going to act and respond the way their personality has been programmed.

    So they've had to interrupt shooting season two because of the wildfires in California. Would've thought Ford had an answer to theme park days being ruined by the weather by now ;)

    Finally got around to watching the original. It holds up pretty well considering its age. In a weird coincidence, I watched it directly after Jurassic Park and couldn't help but notice how similar the stories are (Same writer after all). I think there was some inspiration for Terminator in there.

    Also, James Brolin is the spitting image of Christian Bale in it.

    OK, I have to confess. I cannot stop watching this show over and over and over again. Do I need help? :saywhat:

    I personally hope that they don’t rely on Wood to carry season 2. She just doesn’t have the gravitas.

    That would leave us with Ed, Jeffrey and Thandie. I will so miss Hopkins...

    I agree Teebin.

    I'm still floored Wood won the Emmy over Carrie Coon in either Leftovers or Fargo- take your pick. Or Keri Russell in the Americans.

    It was a performance that was propped up single-handedly by editing and cut-scenes. It's not like she went from robot to person over and over- it was just edited. Without the interviews- and primarily with Hopkins taking the lead there- her performance was as bland as it could be. The interactions between her and the man in white (young ed) weren't even average- they were bad.
    I see her performance falling off very sharply without the edits and Hopkins propping her up.

    Thandie, on the other hand? Hot damn- what a standout.

    I am so proud of myself... went and ripped the opening music from youtube and then edited my own ringtone in iTunes! I am a Westworld iPhone dude now.

    I am such a geeky super-fan. :)

    Im looking forward to it but not sure how they can live up to season 1.

    The plot twists will certainly be hard to beat and Hopkins will be missed, but even so I look forward to watching. oh and I hope Thandi gets plenty of screen time, she was fantastic in season 1.
