When Westworld rolled onto UHF television movie channels sometime in the late seventies it completely captured my attention. Yul Brynner’s deadpan performance, the surprise exist of a main character and the prisoner who was not what she seemed. It may seem quaint compared to the special effects of today, but something about it resonated with my young mind. It wasn’t really about the direct plot, but the implications for humanity.
Seems like HBO is very willing to revisit that uncomfortable line sometime in 2016. Check out the trailer here.
