The first season of HBO's Westworld had a lot of standout qualities, but one of the coolest style tricks it regularly used was placing unexpected versions of pop songs in key scenes - such as an orchestral version of "Paint it Black" during a shootout, or the player piano plinking out "Black Hole Sun" as Maeve prepared to start her day at the saloon. The new trailer suggests we can expect even more of this in season two.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Some of us on staff - the ones with correct opinions - love Ramin Djawadi's arrangements for Westworld. Others - hereafter known as the wrong ones - do not. Here's what I know: There are only five tracks on the just-released Westworld soundtrack, and I will be listening to them on repeat for days.
