If HBO's Westworld wants its ambitious plot to matter it needs to give audiences better rounded characters.
Westworld has all the action, adventure, and intrigue of the ideal Western film, but that's all a veneer for tourists, under which lies a rich maze of philosophy, science fiction, and genre criticism.
