We watched all the special features of the Westworld Season One Blu-ray. Craig and Heather talk about the contents of the special edition steel book (2:46), the first week of filming Westworld (10:33), how the show’s intro was made (14:43), the music (19:02), the director’s commentary and what they thought was missing (21:00), the inspiration for how the hosts are created (26:52), and the blooper reel (29:01).
We got our hands on the special edition Westworld Season One Ultra HD Blu-ray. One of the great things about having a physical copy of the season is the special features. We’re going to watch them and report back to you. Craig gives you a preview for next week’s full-length review.
Do you remember watching the teaser trailer for the first time? That sense of awe and wonder got us so excited for this mysterious new show from HBO. I was watching it again recently (because I clearly have a lot going on in my life) and I realized there was one short scene that never made it into season one. This robotic hand.
We did see robotics like this in a flashback in episode three The Stray. However we didn't see this specific image during that scene. We know Westworld had quite a few production issues so perhaps taking this scene out was one of many changes.
You can see this image very quickly in a flash of images toward the end of the trailer.
Craig had trouble coming to grips with the end of the season. Luckily Jake and Brian were there to help him along. The entire team behind Westworld The Podcast is going to reflect on the first season of Westworld. Here’s a taste of what you’ll be getting this Wednesday.
