WESTWORLD Planned For Five Seasons!

WESTWORLD Planned For Five Seasons!

Do you remember back when we were in a panic because Bad Robot had halted production of WESTWORLD? We thought that was a sign of problems with the series and that they might scrap or re-tool it? We were told that they were just trying to firm up some of the scripts before they moved forward. Liza Joy, showrunner alongside Jonathan Nolan said, “For the first half of the series we were writing while in production and we needed the time to catch up on scripts. Taking that time allowed us to really finesse all the storylines we set up – deepening character arcs and delving further into the series’ larger mythological questions.” Joy...

Westworld Premiere Date: October 2nd

Below is the official press release for HBO’s Westworld series. We’ve been reporting on this epic for almost two years now and every step of the way we’ve been excited. Today is a landmark because we finally have a premiere date! Mark your digital or physical calendars, robot lovers because this show is being hailed as HBO’s next Game of Thrones. Okay, we’ll believe that when we see it but maybe it will at least be HBO’s next True Blood. Either way the Home Box Office needs a hit and even the biggest skeptic would admit this show has all the makings. Here we go!  Glad to be on this journey into the...

WESTWORLD Teaser Trailer Does Not Disappoint!

WESTWORLD Teaser Trailer Does Not Disappoint!

I’m speechless and that is a difficult way to start a post around here, but I am speechless. I wish I could just let the following speak for itself, but I am supposed to say something intelligent about the WESTWORLD Trailer dropped Sunday night before Season 6, Episode # 9 of GAME OF THRONES. If you somehow missed it here it is. Maybe, after I’ve watched it for the fifth time I’ll be able to come up with something. Okay, you remember the premise, right?  WESTWORLD is an advanced theme park in which you can live out your fantasies immersed in a themed world with programmed inhabitants. Instead of unfortunate alligators in the lake...

HBO Having WESTWORLD Woes?

HBO Having WESTWORLD Woes?

We don’t wish to hit the panic button but according to recent reports WESTWORLD is still not back before the cameras. As everyone has stated by now the show halted production to improve on the final scripts of the first season and that production would resume on the other side of the Holidays. Variety has just updated that line of thinking and has stated that filming would not resume until March!  We really are only following up on this report to ask some pertinent questions, though we don’t want to cast doubt onto the series. Though it has been reported that HBO claims the series will make its debut date of sometime in 2016 we have got...

Westworld Will Resume Production in New Year

Westworld Will Resume Production in New Year

We’ve all been waiting for the new year as HBO plans to heat up their 2016 lineup to a temperature not reached with their 2015 offerings. With True Blood, Boardwalk Empire and The Newsroom all ending in 2014, this year has seen HBO struggle to keep the schedule competitive in an increasingly premium TV battlefield.  A season of True Detective that failed to match its Freshman offering’s ratings numbers didn’t help either. Westworld could have changed all that, though. It was all set to premiere in the Fall but HBO pushed that back into 2016 when they decided it needed a bit of rejiggering.  Production has been on hold...
