WestWorld Influences

HBO’s WestWorld is my favorite show on TV right now. IGN put together a video that discusses the original 1970’s movie, it’s influences on both the show and other sci-fi films, and other shows and pop culture that have influenced the show.

It’s well worth a watch.

Unlike many fans, I’ve been trying to avoid coming up with too many theories of the show. I like to let the story take me where it wants to get. I enjoy the surprise more than “figuring it out before they tell me.”

But it’s been really hard to do with this show.

🚀 I just relaunched my Vanilla JS Pocket Guides with new code examples and real projects to help tie everything you’ll learn together. Check it out.
