After a mind-blowing season one finale, Westworld is finally back on April 22nd at 9 p.m. EST. Westworld, originally a feature film written by Jurassic Park’s Michael Crichton and starring Yul Bruyner, was decompressed into a sprawling epic TV series about a theme park world full of android hosts. Season one saw those android gain more and more self-awareness and freedom from their controllers, until we see that season two is going to be a completely new ballgame. Westworld’s teaser was the best trailer from the Super Bowl back in February, and now it has released a fantastic full trailer for its second season. The player pianos in Westworld all play player piano versions of rock songs; the full trailer is accompanied by Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box”. The finale left a lot of directions in which the show can go. I can’t wait to see what Jonathan Nolan has in store.

Each September, in conjunction with Emmy month, Killing Time readers choose what they believe to be the best show currently on television. TV has gone from a second tier medium to one that is consistently better with more variety than the movies. There’s so much quality, in fact, that, while I set the nominee list at 15 this year (and cutting it down was hard). It’s telling that, in those 15 shows, there’s one comedy (and, in truth, Atlanta is more of a dramedy). The sitcom has never been at a worse point, while drama may not be at the peak of its golden age, but it’s still a better bet than the movies have become.
