Westworld isn't your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic "hosts." However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park's guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.

Aw, yeah, cue the waterworks. About time you realized the futility of your situation.
I'm not crying for myself. I'm crying for you. They say that great beasts once roamed this world. As big as mountains. Yet all that's left of them is bone and amber. Time undoes even the mightiest of creatures. Just look at what it's done to you. One day you will perish. You will lie with the rest of your kind in the dirt.

Don't waste your time. The writing is poor. It tries hard to be sophisticated and intelligent about AI but it introduces nothing new that Hollywood hasn't done already. It tries to explore the possibilities of artificial intelligence and blur the lines between human and android, attempting to draw any empathy for robots. Unfortunately, it just fell flat. It was hard to me to identify with any of the characters on the show - human or droid. Want to watch a good movie about a future where humans coexist with androids? Watch blade runner, AI, or hell, even 2001 space odyssey.
It's a great cast and great visual effects team but it was all squandered - a huge missed opportunity.
