How to watch ‘Westworld’

Violent delights meet violent ends, and chaos takes control.

Just about every piece of sci-fi fiction spat out in the last half-century (save for Star Trek) spells out a pretty bleak future. But at least in the dystopian future in Westworld, there are cool theme parks. Six of them, in fact!

Set in a lawless Wild West manned almost completely by androids, visitors who come to Westworld get to indulge just about every vice imaginable. And just like Disneyland, there’s a grimy underbelly. Usually, the androids who are involved in all the seedy action get their minds wiped at the end of the day. But recently, a select handful is establishing memories. As season 3 starts, the line between humanity and androids is explored as automatons fight for their autonomy.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Westworld.
