The new season of HBO’s bleak robot drama west world will return soon for its fourth season. In the words from Jeb Bush, “Please clap.”

Everyone has their preferences when it comes to TV and movies. My personal preference is to stay away from west world† I don’t quite understand how it is possible to make a show about killer robots boring, but the creators of this prestigious HBO drama accomplished just that. The series, which returns on June 26, has big actorsenormous budgetsfull network support and some of the coolest visuals on TV, but still can’t get it to decent dialogueor plot that doesn’t feel both disjointed and somehow predictable. Most of the characters speak in tired, fortune-telling platitudes, and the performances are closer to what you’d expect from people in charge of a washing machine than a sympathetic humanoid escaping her appalling working conditions. It often feels that the showrunners should have focused less on making something profound and instead just tried to make something fun out of it.

To each his own. In the case of my ‘own’, I suggest you skip west world and check out these 11 robot-focused alternatives.
