Westworld -- "Keeping Robots In A Park? You Also Deserve To Die!"
It's no coincidence that HBO's Westworld plays like "What If Jurassic Park Was Robot Cowboys Instead Of Dinosaurs?" considering the same guy originally wrote both books these series are based on (Michael Crichton). The show's moral philosophy is a little wonky at times, to say the least, but the moral dilemma is familiar: These incredibly lifelike robots populate a theme park for rich tourists who selfishly treat them like objects. We find out early on that the robots are self-aware, and if you've seen a movie or TV show before, you know that a rampage is coming.
In Season 1, the human character who's supposed to stand in for the audience is William, a young man making his first visit to the park who falls in love with a female robot, to the point where he risks his life to defend her from his d******d future brother-in-law Logan. Eventually, William ties Logan naked to a horse and sends him galloping off into the wilderness. Logan survives, but spirals into a suicidal depression and kills himself offscreen in Season 2. That's what you get for being mean to the robots, s******d! They're people too! But you're not!
Logan's death is but a drop in the bucket in the end. The robots soon start slaughtering park employees and guests with gleeful brutality. There are a few "good ones" we're meant to worry about among the humans, but the rest get their heads exploded while an expressionless android says something badass.
