Westworld Series Premiere Recap | The Original

Listen to the Podcast

Welcome to Westworld! Every week, Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jo Garfein (@jopinionated) will discuss the new HBO series about an old west theme park built in a futuristic world, populated by robot hosts and human guests. Theories, analysis, and overall madness is sure to ensue.

With the series premiere upon is, Josh is joined by special guest host AJ Mass (@AJMass) while Jo is away in Hawaii World (not to be confused with Lost World, a different Michael Crichton story). Josh and AJ break down the first episode of the series, “The Original,” and sound off on what’s working and what’s glitching out as of the first episode. Plus, AJ drops some theories about Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and the Man in Black (Ed Harris), while both hosts speculate on the true motives of Anthony Hopkins’ character Robert Ford.

Oh, and don’t drink every time you hear Josh say “Westerosworld,” unless you’re looking to lose consciousness.
