‘Westworld’ Season 1, Episode 2: When You’re Suffering, That’s When You’re the Most Real

About a dozen minutes into “Chestnut,” the second episode of Westworld, Ed Harris’ Man in Black rides up on a posse that’s bout to hang a man named Lawrence (Clifton Collins Jr.). Lawrence doesn’t recognize the Man in Black, but the Man in Black knows Lawrence; later he’ll joke that he even knows the tune he likes to whistle when he takes a piss. Only two episodes into this series, we’ve already seen Harris’ character do this a couple times; he approaches everyone with familiarity, something that probably shouldn’t be surprising if, as the Man in Black claims, he’s been coming to Westworld for 30 years and the park recycles the same day with the same stories and characters on an endless loop.

‘Westworld’ Premiere Review: HBO’s New Sci-Fi Series Was Worth the Wait

Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi film is something of a cult classic, offering an early blueprint for Jurassic Park with its tale of scientists playing God and an ill-advised theme park run amok (seriously, what on earth happened during Crichton’s family vacations?). Similarly, Crichton’s campy romp through a futuristic resort serves as a blueprint for HBO’s Westworld, which takes a more thoughtful and unsettling approach in its inversion of the ’73 film, presenting the A.I. (or “hosts”) as the protagonists of the series.

HBO’s Westworld adaptation has often found itself the center of a larger narrative around the network’s expensive missteps, following production halts and rumors a premiere might be pushed to 2017. Not so, apparently, as HBO now confirms Westworld will bow in late 2016, along with Sarah Jessica Parker’s new show and others.

If the ho-hum release of HBO’s Vinyl put a cap on the premium cable network’s difficulty launching a major hit in recent years, the well may run far deeper than we realized. HBO’s Westworld adaptation in particular may now end up pushed to 2017, reportedly owing to creative clashes with showrunner Jonathan Nolan.

It’s been some time since HBO made any official announcements of its upcoming Westworld remake, and notably odd that the series garnered little mention at the recent TCA press tour. There may be some, or rather more trouble behind the scenes now, as production has temporarily shut down. Will it affect the as-yet-unannounced premiere?

There’s some kind of joke to be made about how it took the arrival of a Spanish-language preview for Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur for us to hear the film’s English-language voice cast in action. This new international trailer also gives us our best look yet at the movie’s actual plot and characters, which is a nice change of pace from the lovely-but-vague early teases.
