    It's got a great cast and been getting great reviews. I wasn't sure how much they can mine from the premise of what is basically a 90 minute chase picture, but apparently this goes off on all sorts of tangents.

    poului a bit overrated

    I'm disappointed that they don't appear to feature the two other worlds (Medieval and Roman) that were in the original film. Having the action spill over into the other zones was my favourite bit of the film, not least in that it resembled an earlier crack at The Crystal Maze.

    I've never been hugely convinced most people would be interested in a Western themed park. When Crichton wrote Jurassic Park, which was basically an updated version of his Westworld, that made a lot more sense to me as a place people would spend a lot of money to visit.

    A Richard Benjamin and James Brolin cameo would be nice.....even if for a moment, sat in a saloon somewhere....drinking a whiskey

    steveo87 Procrastinating for....a while

    Just watched enjoyed it, mostly.

    At times, however, it did feel like they had GoT style "Tits and swears" tally they had to fit each scene.
    It made some of the characters far too one dimensional.

    I thought it was amazing. First episode and they've already layered three separate plot themes into the series from the getgo without shoving it in your faces.

    Liked the occasional musical homage to the film.

    Liked the fact that whereas the guests were the main focus of the original they now are just bit players.

    Loved the homicidal milk man
    scaring the shit out of two guests

    I thought that too - they did talk about a Horror world. Early doors though innit, hopefully they'll show the other worlds at some point

    People forget there was a vast amount of sex in the original film.

    "Charvet believes the cafe will become a hub of social activity, where friends meet to chat, drink coffee and casually enjoy robotic sex acts."

    If you have sex with a robot WE ARE NOT FRIENDS!

    Fascinating how in this chap's universe people are men, and women are some kind of separate species to be granted, at best, an afterthought.

    Oh, wait - that is just the patriarchal world we live in :(

    I'm quite sure there would be robots capable of offering cunnilingus, I just suspect the ratio of male to female "punters" will be quite extreme.

    I keep thinking of Archer's robot wife who keeps leaving her vagina in the sink.

    John Sladek's Tik Tok is a memorable pulpy SF tale about a psychopathic robot with sex-duty bolt-ons

    Must look that up.

    Best series opener in a while. They've left the other parts of park offlimit in a smart move (why overload us). How memories and past may effect the hosts, had echoes of alot of themes of Dollhouse, and the semi transparent illusioninary world they live in is like the Truman show. Only the visitors know the truth and the hosts are supposedly incapable of finding out or acting on. With the plots about bugs and the potential management schemes for the park, they've definitely shown how they can expand from the original film.
