    [Megathread] If I kill an artificial human, am I a murderer? [Westworld Thread][NSFW]

    Its a new HBO show about a theme-park full of robot people who are starting to realise that their world is'nt what it seems. All hail our new robot overlords.

    Its also possibly better then Game of Thrones, and therefore deserves a Megathread.

    Not watched it yet but it looks interesting.

    In a similar vein, new series of Humans on C4 soon. I enjoyed the first series.

    This.

    I was blown away by those western interpretations of "modern" music. I could decipher "Black Hole Sun" from Soundgarden somewhere in the middle of the episode and "Paint It, Black" from the Rolling Stones was playing during the scene with that main villan (Hector or so).

    Definetly something i will be keep watching and i hope they keep that high standard of the pilot.
    Shamelessly quoting myself from the TV thread. Been a long time since a show has surprised me in a very pleasant way.

    Someone else read something into the last shot? Is swatting the fly supposed to mean she lied in her interrogation?

    I think it's implying she's changed. I'd have to rewatch but I don't recall any fly swatting moments otherwise.

    I thought the bots were supposed to be incapable of intentionally killing any living thing.

    Hence "ohshit she just broke her core programming without even noticing" moment.

    Either she lied in the last session which is pretty dark, or shes broken out of the core "must not kill or harm any living thing" program. Which is super exciting.

    I think swatting a fly is part of any basic instict almost as a reflex thing of a living being, my conclusion was that they are starting to "feel" things. Also the old "bad" guy on black (cant remember his name) i think he's messing with their programming or something.

    EDIT: THE SHOW HAS TITS

    Also I was wrong, in the opening shot a fly crawls over her eyeball and she doesn't even react. Probably so gross I forgot about it :P

    she lied. Father must have told her more than than she revealed to the questioners. Begun the AI revolt has.
    Maybe.

    One thing that really stood out to me was the picture in NYC (or something) that the father finds. The robots are programmed to ignore any fourth-wall (if you can call it that) breaking moments. She constantly insists that she sees nothing whereas his filter seems to be a bit broken.
