After seeing White Christmas The Entire History of You and San Junipero, I am hooked, though there are few episodes.

Anyone else see this? It's so much better than Westworld.

Warning: the pilot is very disturbing probably because it could happen tomorrow.

Overriding theme of the series:

New technology is like a new drug, one or two indications, about 50 side effects.

It's an updated Alfred Hitchcock joint.

Westworld is amazing...Elon Musk would say it's just as likely of being non-fiction as any scenerio is BM.

Love this show. Need to finish season 2 and 3. Like being able to watch out of order.

as in, this world is all just a simulation of a higher being billions of years older than us. It's an interesting theory. I believe Musk noted that in less than 40 years, we have gone from the technology of the game Pong, to virtual reality gaming that is nearly indistinguishable from real life. Imagine where technology would be in a thousand years. Deep shit.

San Junipero has become one of my favorites. It's got everything, 80s nostalgia, Belinda Carlisle and a couple of hot lesbians. The ending blew me away.
