    Westworld: The Complete First Season UHD Review
    [​IMG]


    A sequel of sorts but definitely inspired by Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name, Westworld was a smashing success in its first season on HBO, and becomes the first television series released on 4K UHD Blu-ray.

    As of this moment, Amazon Prime members can pick up the 4K UHD Blu-ray for $32.99, that's $4 less than the Blu-ray edition!

    That price actually got me to blind buy this one -- something I almost never do with TV series.

    And it's a combo set that includes the blu-ray, too, so it's like they're paying you $4 to take the 4K discs off their hands.

    Thanks for the review Todd. I was going to buy this but someone snagged it off my wish list so I expect I will find it under the tree. I was planning on blind buying as it looks like a heck of a deal and I heard great things about the show.

    As Warner has been doing on many of their recent home video releases, there is an insert asking you to complete an online survey, which asks general questions about why you purchased this title and what you liked and disliked about it. One of the answers to this question almost had me falling out of my chair:

    I'm really tempted to grab this for $33 but I might watch it once at most because I've already watched it on HBO.
    Just don't have the time anymore to rewatch tv show seasons anymore.

    Even though I had already watched the season, I bought it because I love HDR.

    Unfortunately, I found the PQ very disappointing. I found the SDR much better. The UHD was too murky & dark.
