Westworld had a record-setting debut on HBO, and so far we’re loving it. But it wouldn’t be a Bad Robot production if it did cause us to ask all sorts of questions, speculate at the possibilities and obsess over the many Westworld theories floating around the internet.

Westworld is off to a very, very good start. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s ambitious and radical reimagining of Michael Crichton‘s 1973 film not only impressed critics but its pilot (titled “The Original”) was HBO’s biggest debut since the True Detective premiere. Between the premiere episode’s first two airings and the views on HBO Go and HBO Now, the episode reached 3.3 million viewers. If you don’t subscribe to HBO or haven’t had the opportunity to watch the first episode yet, then luckily for you, it’s now available to watch online for free.

Westworld isn’t a cheap show to produce. The brass at HBO believed in the show to bet as big as they did on creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s reimagining of Michael Crichton‘s 1973 film. But the good news is that it looks like that bet is already beginning to pay off. Not only did the pilot, which cost $25 million, get HBO their highest rated premiere since True Detective, it’s also already found an enthusiastic audience.

What happened when filmmaker Michael Bay read an article about “The World’s Loneliest Dog?” The action director decided to give her a role in his latest film, Transformers: The Last Knight. The homeless epileptic Staffordshire Bull Terrier named “Freya” had been passed over for adoption at the Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre more than 18,000 times over six years, despite being a “very loving dog.” See the video of Freya making her big screen debut alongside Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins after the jump.

Earlier this year HBO shut down production on Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s television remake of Michael Crichton‘s Westworld. When the J.J. Abrams-produced series was greenlit, HBO was hoping to premiere the series in 2015. Whatever the real reason was for the delay, Abrams was correct when he said it’s never a bad move not to rush to a premiere date. They took their time with the series, and according to actor James Marsden, it was somewhat because they were plotting future seasons. In fact, if all goes according to plan, we’ll get a total of five Westworld seasons.

Since we’re looking at the end of Game of Thrones coming in two shortened seasons, HBO needs to find a new show to fill the void that will eventually be left by the absence of the fantasy hit. Thankfully, their TV series adaptation of the sci-fi thriller Westworld written by Michael Crichton looks like it could be their next genre hit.
Westworld is based on 1973 sci fi thriller which took place in a futuristic theme park where paying guests would pretend to be gunslingers in an artificial Wild West populated by advanced androids. But one day, the system goes haywire and the androids begin to rebel against their programming. A new Westworld trailer from HBO shows how the story plays out in a contemporary world where Evan Rachel Wood plays an android who is slowly becoming aware of the twisted world she’s part of as she realizes that she’s not as human as she thought.
