Critic Consensus: "The Original" lays the vivid playground of Westworld before us in all its detail-heavy, morality-questioning, and mystery-filled glory.

Critic reviews for The Original
I'd say that with the lowered expectations that came... this was actually was an INCREDIBLE pilot!
Westworld is set to be several seasons long so you can't bet we'll be seeing more of this futuristic place than just the Wild West.
It's just the first episode, and already that control seems in flux as more questions arise. Can't wait to get a few more answers.
The show as a whole makes one question what human beings are really capable of, and then ponder if we really want to know the answer.
Still, the show seems extremely thoughtful about what it's doing - and in showing us the Dolores Wakes Up scene as many times as it does, it invites us to spot what seems like her slow awakening.
