The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Thandie New­ton earned an Emmy Award for this sec­ond sea­son of the HBO drama se­ries, adapted heav­ily from a con­cept de­vised by Michael Crich­ton for a 1973 movie. Guests and oth­ers are threat­ened by the freed “hosts” at an amuse­ment park where hu­manoids rebel against their pro­grammed re­sponses and em­bark on their own, fre­quently lethal form of lib­er­a­tion. Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Har­ris, James Mars­den, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thomp­son, Luke Hemsworth, Louis Herthum, Ro­drigo San­toro, Shan­non Wood­ward and An­thony Hop­kins also are in the ex­cel­lent cast. DVD ex­tras: two “mak­ing-of” doc­u­men­taries.
