"Westworld:" entertaining, sometimes brilliant, but

as amoral and corrupting as any television or theater offering I can recall. Simply put: there is no redeeming value for all the ceaseless and needlessly grisly murders that overwhelm most scenes. Even in its own world, it would be unacceptable; in these days of real world massacres and ultra-violence, it is dangerous, irresponsible, and satanic to so casually show so much mayhem. But, some may say, these are but robots that are being tortured and slaughtered! Yes, but they are indistinguishable from humans--- watching this, week-after-week, is to become dehumanized--- in the most profound way.
Moreover, the premise of all this, that "normal" humans would voluntarily, eagerly, and pleasurably engage in rape and murder, goes against all clinical evidence and in itself is a deeply corrosive and sickening message.

Good actors, though...
