Programming note: Vacation, followed by news

See you next week
Programming note: Vacation, followed by news

Just a heads up, folks: Taking the rest of this week and early next off for a bit of family time and R&R. A few pre-written reviews will publish in my absence — two tonight, in fact —  but anything that gets skipped (including this week's Ask Alan) is because of the vacation. If major TV news breaks, or a notable show does its best/worst episode ever, I won't be around to write about it.

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR WESTWORLD AHEAD.

How old is Robert Ford? It’s a question that has been plaguing me since Anthony Hopkins first appeared on screen, talking to the broken down host Old Bill (Michael Wincott), in the Westworld premiere.

We know Sir Anthony himself is 78, but that means little and less in a future where we’ve cured any and all ailments that currently control the human population. But now that we know the child robot (Oliver Bell) is indeed a young version of Ford, I’m more convinced than ever that the creator of Westworld is older than he appears.

Ben Affleck is making the rounds promoting his latest film, The Accountant, and stopped by The Graham Norton Show. That was a big mistake. The host dredged up a role from Affleck's early acting days as a presenter on the educational program The Voyage of the Mimi.
