I hope its boardwalk empire where the nudity gets more and more gratitutious as the season goes on as opposed to most shows where it drops off after the first episode

Showing some titties in the first episode of a season is just good storytelling.

Just renewed my HBO subscription for this. Can't wait. I think the western stuff will probably help this appeal to a wide audience who might not be into the more sci-fi elements

This show looks like it's checking all the relevant boxes for me.

AI running rampant.
Western.
Hannibal Lecter.
Sexbots (Waifus?)

Hopefully there will be a sexposition about the nature of man and the artificial consciousness. Then it'll be a 10/10 HBO show.

Yup, that too. This'll appeal to a lot of people due to those dual aspects

I love both, so that juxtaposition of classic Western with cold clinical sci-fi is going to be fascinating. Plus the fact that this seems to be going the AI uprising/revolution route...

Absolutely! It's definitely one of the better 70s sci-fi films out there. The first half-2/3 of the movie is really focused on the "WOW" factor of the futuristic park, but the plot really picks up in the last bit.

I am conflicted.

For one I love Jonathan Nolan and Person of Interest....

But on the other hand, I hate HBO and how the ''mature''-ise everything they do, and the fact that I heard this show was intended to replace Game of Thrones, put a bigger damp on my excitement. One of the amazing thing about PIO was that it didn't use sex and boobs to be amazing. Oh and it had humour too.

Any POI-GAF on board on this?

I think most of us are.

The only thing is that HBO pretty much requires you to just pop the T&A out. I'm actually a little more concerned of all the production issues the show had earlier. Just hoping the younger Nolan isn't going out of his way to go too crazy on this project (like the non-simulated orgy scenes).

There was a BTS on POI where he said he finds sex scenes a bit weird, so I don't think it'll be too bad. So like the Shaw and Root "sex scene" in POI it'll happen but it won't be "all there". Then again it's modern HBO, and I'm pretty sure I remember Pizzaman saying for TD they were given notes on some scripts that said "Needs more sex"

How about a sci-fi story and themes in a (mostly) western setting?

I agree - I did a double-take when I saw it's from 1973. Still a great movie.
