Speaking on creating the series, Jonathan Nolan (who also created Person of Interest) told Vulture: “Nothing good is easy. HBO is holding themselves to a high standard. But they didn’t have to encourage us to be ambitious. We were ambitious from the beginning.” The show has already drawn criticism from some quarters for the depiction of rape. To this  that it was important for them to incorporate sexual violence into the show because it has “sadly been a fact of human history since the beginning of human history.”

Last month, Producers of HBO’s highly anticipated and twice-delayed Westworld, Lisa Joy told the L.A. Times:  “Westworld is an examination of human nature. The best parts of human nature — paternal love, romantic love, finding oneself — but also the basis for parts of human nature — violence and sexual violence. Violence and sexual violence have been a fact of human history since the beginning. There’s something about us — thankfully not the majority of us — but there are people who have engaged in violence and who are victims of violence.”
