Just finished Westworld.

Who else thinks Somebody That I Used to Know would be a great vidsong for William and Dolores??

I mean, it would though!

I have seen the movie, I didn't know they made a TV show of it. I can't imagine how it would translate to an episodic format. I don't enjoy thrillers, but I'm curious. How was it?

It was good and creepy and different. I liked it but I don't know how it will translate to a second season. The first season was all about the slow unraveling when the hosts begin to gain consciousness and a sense of self. Which isn't a spoiler because it's clear from the first episode or two that that's what's happening to some of them. Anyway, the timeline is super fluid and jumps around a lot, but the narrative doesn't exactly clue you in to that fact until later on. Which makes sense, because without the aid of memory, how would the hosts know if something happened yesterday or 30 years ago? Gives you a sense of what they must feel like when they finally realize... well realize ANYTHING that is actually happening to them. Really puts us in their place so to speak.

That sounds interesting! I think I'd probably really enjoy that as a book, it's just the physiological effects of tv/movie thrillers that are really unpleasant for me. I'm prone to nightmares, too. *sigh* I'm so sensitive.

Haha, awww. I am not sure what your threshold is or what specifically would set you off. I'd say there are some very unsettling parts to this, but I guess it depends on... well a lot of factors. Give the first episode a shot if you feel like you want to and if that's too much then don't torture yourself!

I have still yet to watch the whole series - have been watching when I can! But just in general from what I've seen, I agree that the song would totally fit!
