WESTWORLD key art | ©2016 HBO

The 1973 cult hit WESTWORLD, based on Michael Crichton’s novel, centers around an immersive amusement park where customers can play at being gunslingers among lifelike androids. Naturally, something goes wrong. Now WESTWORLD has been reinvented by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Nolan for HBO, which is now running the first season on Sunday nights. The new WESTWORLD still takes place in a very realistic recreated Old West, where profoundly humanlike androids do whatever the guests want. There are indeed glitches. But this WESTWORLD, instead of jumping into the “technology gone wrong, must escape” scenario, instead asks what all of the […]Read On »

Created by Jonathan “Jonah” Nolan, PERSON OF INTEREST began life on CBS in 2011. Michael Emerson stars as the enigmatic Mr. Finch (we find out later his first name is Harold and he’s found of bird pseudonyms as a last name) who developed a machine that, as his opening narration explains, was designed to detect acts of terror. That part went to the government. However, Mr. Finch found that another part of the machine could detect threats against ordinary people and hired guilt-stricken former spy John Reese (Jim Caviezel) to prevent these threats from coming to fruition.

Stars: Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Taraji P. Henson Writer: Jonathan Nolan Director: David Semel Network: CBS, Thursdays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: September 22, 2011 This isn’t (so far as we know) real, but it certainly sounds plausible – what if the government commissioned a tech genius to invent software that could isolate possible terrorist “chatter”? And what if that software included an element that was later discarded, which also picked up indications of non-terrorist crimes about to be committed? So far, so good with writer Jonathan Nolan’s premise (he shares creator status with J.J. Abrams) for PERSON OF INTEREST, […]Read On »
