I think the question on everybody's minds here is, does this mean there will be more or less full frontal nudity?

I know that was MY first thought.

In Roman world?  I'm guessing yes.

Ok but if they don't cast as many actors as they can from the HBO series Rome in this, it's gonna count as a FAIL. Even if it's just some cameos they really have to do it.

Trying to shore up the GoT audience for when there's no more show.

No Samurai world? How about anime world?

texdent: No Samurai world? How about anime world?


There was a sneak peek at Samurai world...But Anime World would really depend on what show/genre it was doing.

Personally, I'd like to visit Norse World.

You sound like you'd like the new "Star Trek Discovery" show, because there's not a lot of that high-falutin' talkin' stuff, but lots of the pew-pew-shooty-boom stuff.
 
2017-10-05 09:00:54 AM  
Well... They do have sets left over from Rome and GoT.

So basically, this show is about a park for people who want to kill or screw other humans with impunity, right?

1) Medieval world would probably be too close to Westerosworld, so it'll be interesting.

2) Romanworld might be cool if done right.

I loved this show, even though I dislike the Wild West as a setting. I was kind of hoping they'd go outside the park to the modern (future) world. In the first season they had the host with the transmitter in his arm that was being used to exfiltrate data from the park to a satellite. I'd like it if, in the second season, there's a story about trying to keep hosts from escaping the park. They could start it out a bit of a detective story about what that transmitter was all about. They could have a villain who wants to use hosts to achieve his own ends in the real world. The twist is of course that hosts infiltrated human society a long time ago and are doing to humans exactly what humans did to them for so long.

So? Corporation-wise, that means the character can't sue when they use her likeness in a synth. Win-win, and a narrative way to keep the actor in the show.

And, RomanWorld. Dangit, now I want to visit this particular dimension. The thought of waking up in the old west, visiting a far-east duel, and lounging around in the Roman Senate for giggles, that's a world to visit.

And dashed were the hopes of large amount of fanboys for nude Asian girls in Samurai world.

Granted, that would have been a controversy minefield.  Imagine a bunch of white folks running around last samurai style, being heroic samurai and having lots of casual sex with Asians.  Not to mention casting a bunch of Asian actresses who would be willing to bear it all.

Rome and medieval period is just easier to handle I think.  Can pool from the same group of actors/actresses, and at least Rome would already have the justification for lots of sex going on.

At the very least they need Kevin McKidd & Ray Stevenson to do a walk-thru farking up some stuff

I struggled with this show. Maybe more from the tone of it overall. I guess I was disappointed it didn't show the park as a fun place kinda like the original movie before it got into the robots rebelling and becoming sentient and all moody. Didn't Futureworld show a Roman and Midieval world also?

The driving storyline of the series is how it turns normal people into sociopaths.

That is a fair point. And who is to say she wasn't already a Host? We never saw her body (sadly in multiple definitions of the word).

They should license Kill la Kill for that.

Yeah I had the same reaction.  Moved too fast into the main plot, it seemed, needed a slower pace, IMO.

Is there ANYTHING more disappointing than not seeing the Nudity warning in front of an episode of GoT or Westworld?  I think not. ;)

I don't mind high-falutin' talkin' stuff if the stuff they're talking about hasn't already been done to death, but, if this is the first time you've been exposed to those talking points, good for you.

I've always assumed that the Westworld world is ours but in the future.  I would also assume that the Game of Thrones series is part of the Westworld media/entertainment history because it's part of our entertainment.

Since they are both HBO shows, why not have a GOT world?  Maybe for the third season?  The GOT cast will have a lot of free time then...

Having the humans being jerks made you have empathy for the robots. It also gave them a reason to rise up other than just having a meltdown.

Eh, I thought it was more of how it reveals that some people were sociopaths to begin with and the park just helped bring out their true self.
