As another day of fantasy plays out in Westworld - a vast, remote park where guests pay top dollar to share wild-west adventures with android "hosts" - top programmer Bernard Lowe alerts park founder Dr. Robert Ford about incidents of aberrant behavior cropping up in some recently re-coded hosts. Meanwhile, in the Westworld town of Sweetwater, a rancher's daughter named Dolores encounters a gunslinger named Teddy in the street - but their predictable narrative is upended by the appearance of a ruthless Man in Black and, later, by a supporting host's unscripted encounter with an artifact of the outside world.

Bernard Lowe: Bring her back online.
[a ring of light appears, scarcely illuminating a blond female form. More lights turn on behind, straight segments surrounding areas containing more halo-like lights]
Bernard Lowe: Can you hear me?
[the light over the female brightens. Though still draped in shadow, she is unmistakably nude]
Dolores Abernathy: [In Western accent] Yes. I'm sorry. I'm... not feelin' quite myself.
Bernard Lowe: You can lose the accent. Do you know where you are?

Promising Series
8 January 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the future, the Western-themed amusement park Westworld is a place where android hosts receive human guests that live experiences in the West in different storylines performed by the androids. The hosts are programmed to not harm the humans. When a software updated is implement in the hosts by the Westworld´s creator Dr. Robert Ford, there is a malfunction in the sheriff first and in a criminal later, and the manager of the park Theresa remove the updated androids from Westworld to keep the guests safe. Meanwhile the host Peter Abernathy acts strange after finding a photo taken outside Westworld. His daughter Dolores is in love with the host Teddy and when he is killed in a shooting, Dolores is deactivated and interrogated by the Westworld programmers.

"Westworld" is a promising series based on the 1973 "Westworld" by Michael Crichton. The storyline is interesting, showing androids with feelings and the backstage of the amusement park, with manager, programmers and the creator performed by Anthony Hopkins. My vote is eight.
