Good memory, Bear. Yes-- Westworld was a movie in the 70s with Yul Brenner. Also James Brolin.
I'm anxiously awaiting The Magicians. I read the first two books in the series when they were published and loved them. I'm now rereading them in anticipation, but more because I started the third and realized I couldn't remember a lot from the first two. Because I'm old. Hahahahahaha. It looks like it will be a good adaptation, and the author (Lev Grossman) approves of the modifications they made in adapting the novels.
Lorenzo's tweets reminded me we haven't had a good, quirky show since Pushing Daisies. I miss that show.
