A ‘Jurassic Park’ film should not be this boring.
HBO’s newest large-scale endeavor, Westworld, is trying hard to entice. If you haven’t seen the press surrounding it, there’s been some serious concerns with content. What Westworld manages to accomplish in its pilot, “The Original,” is firmly establish tone, backstory, and future conflict. It does so with a great deal of success, with only a few outlying weak points. Although the show isn’t quite a Game of Thrones-level hit, Westworld’s pilot sets up enough to entice viewers.
