With Games of Thrones announced to end after its eighth season, HBO – and television generally – will lose a rare show that can draw in viewers and consistently please the critics. Thankfully, if what people are saying is true, they might have already found an ideal replacement in Westworld.
Loosely based on the 1973 movie written and directed by Jurassic Park scribe Michael Crichton, Westworld is part of a new wave of TV shows that have both a cinematic budget and A-list talent (behind and in front of the camera) on board in the hopes of making a high quality series. In this case, it seems to have worked. Only two episodes of the show have been released so far, but already it’s being tipped to be the next must-see TV series.
You’ve probably heard that said about various other shows out there that turned out to be a letdown, but trust us on this one, Westworld is good. Like, really good, and here are a few reasons why you need to give it a go if you haven’t done so already.
