If you have yet to jump on the Westworld bandwagon, you’re missing out. That’s particularly true for anyone who is awestruck by the future of robotics and AI. Known for its lifelike representations of tomorrow’s technologies, the HBO series drew accolades and a passionate following after it first aired in 2016. With season three officially in the works, newcomers have plenty of time to get caught up before new episodes air sometime in 2020 (the exact date remains TBD). HBO released the season three trailer earlier this month, giving fans a sneak peak at what’s coming for Westworld—including a whole new world of artificial intelligence.

And that, for the first time ever, I could go wherever I wanted, whenever I wanted, on my own. And, oh man, it was easy. At 16, life was all about me and the open road.
