Has anyone seen the first episode?

Bloody hell.

Amazing.

I can't wait for next week

PikachuSayBoo Mon 03-Oct-16 17:18:46

I'm looking forward to this. Was it on last night? Missed it.

Have set series record for showings on Tues nights.

ReggaeShark Mon 03-Oct-16 17:22:36

Eh? Thought it started tomorrow?

LineyReborn Mon 03-Oct-16 17:26:36

When what where??

Middleoftheroad Mon 03-Oct-16 17:34:34

I'm going to watch this later. Can't wait - though those are some big Brenner cowboy boots to fill.

Yee-ha!

OhMrsQ Mon 03-Oct-16 17:42:56

Oh, sorry! I'm in America. We got it last night, its a new Sunday night thing to take the place of Game of THrones

PikachuSayBoo Mon 03-Oct-16 18:36:08

Afaik it's on Sky Atlantic tomorrow night.

What did everyone think? I loved it!

TheHiphopopotamus Tue 04-Oct-16 23:30:02

I thought it was good too. Intrigued as to where they are going to take it for a full series though (and maybe beyond).

Has anyone seen the original film at all?

BifsWif Wed 05-Oct-16 10:53:07

It's been passed for 5 series so far, so I'm interested to see where it goes too. I haven't seen the original film.

PrivatePike Wed 05-Oct-16 13:03:41

I thought it was great! Although the flipping milk murderer robot was just too much shock The face off at the end between the robot father and Anthony Hopkins was chilling.

schbittery Wed 05-Oct-16 13:06:26

I liked it too - though bit derivative these days. Some are not what they seem right?

Jasonandyawegunorts Wed 05-Oct-16 15:40:31

Wait... is this a series based on the Scifi robot theme park movie?

melibu84 Wed 05-Oct-16 15:45:49

I loved it. Really excited to see how the story will develop, and the sound track was really good too!

If you haven't seen the original film, it's worth a look as well smile

TheHiphopopotamus Wed 05-Oct-16 16:15:13

Yes, it's based on the film. There's a bloke in the original that looks so much like Christian Bale, I had to check it wasn't his dad.

In the first ep, they referred to an 'incident' 30 yrs ago, so not sure if it's events in the film that they were referencing or something else? Also, so far, there's no sign of Roman World or Medieval World.

I honestly don't know how they're going to string it out over a series confused I really hope they can keep the quality up.

Jasonandyawegunorts Wed 05-Oct-16 16:17:28

It's a shame i don't have sky atlantic.

There was another movie made called Futureworld which was supposed to be a sequal but wasn't very good.

TheHiphopopotamus Wed 05-Oct-16 16:26:35

It was only when I rewatched the film recently, that I realised it was written and directed by Michael Crichton.

He loves the idea of these futuristic theme parks spiralling into disaster, doesn't he? grin

AvocadoLemon Wed 05-Oct-16 17:00:17

We are watching it tonight. Quick question - is it suitable viewing for a 12 you boy do you think?

TheHiphopopotamus Wed 05-Oct-16 17:12:34

I wouldn't let my 12 yr old watch it, I don't think. There's a fair bit of gore and violence in it.

OhMrsQ Wed 05-Oct-16 17:16:00

I wonder if the series will eventually pan out to show all the 'worlds' clients pay to go in. Medievalworld, romanworld, etc. Which could also be the 5 series thing too.

PikachuSayBoo Wed 05-Oct-16 18:45:04

I was confused at times about who were the robots and who were the guests.

The bloke who went to the farmstead and was involved in murdering the mother and father I am guessing he was a guest because he couldn't be shot? So was everyone else in the scene who did die they were all robots?

And then in the shootouts in town everyone getting killed they were all robots?

SerJorahsSecondChoice Wed 05-Oct-16 19:35:45

Basically yes, Pikachu.

Can anyone tell me the name of the music in the end shootout scene? I recognise it but can't think where it was from.

Bloody loved it!

youngestisapsycho Wed 05-Oct-16 22:17:17

I'm completely confused!

Chippednailvarnishing Wed 05-Oct-16 22:18:50

I couldn't get the subtitles to work so I really struggled to watch this sad
