    The events on that ferry happened in 1993. In the present timeline, the characters took a plane to Norway.

    For a Westworld fan I have three recommendations:

    Thematically, Black Mirror is probably most similar to Westworld in addressing the relationship between humans and technology/AI.

    If you don't mind the subtitles, I've really been pushing Dark which I thought was one of the best and smartest sci-fi series I've seen in several years. It was a bit under the radar, probably because it's German, and it does take 4-5 episodes to really get going. The last 4-5 episodes of season 1 were simply mind-blowing.

    Last, not a Netflix show, but The Expanse (initially on SyFy but recently acquired by Amazon) deftly blends political intrigue with hard space sci-fi.

    Agreed. It's intelligent with good writing and performances.

    We just started and I’m surprised how much I’ve liked it. I’m not much of a TV series guy, but find the Netflix series closer to watching a long movie with intermission every hour than a typical series. They are very well done.

    We went through Stranger Things and Mindhunter in just a few nights. We’re nearly done with Making A Murderer. All were very good.

    On my list are Ozark, American Vandal, Five Came Back and a few others.

    I'll be the first, (maybe the only) to recommend the Netflix series called "Lilyhammer." Steven Van Zandt plays a gangster who is sent to Norway under the witness protection program and starts to build a crime empire there.

    I will admit that Blacklist is a guilty pleasure. Though it repeats the same plot lines, sorry lines and “aha” moments incessantly. I can’t help but chuckle that these super human agents are completely blindsided by the same damn thing, over and over.

    I thought it was a show with a lot of depth. i'm sorry i'm not a student of philosophy enough to really discuss it. I saw what I identify as Gnostic themes being played with.
