The second series of Westworld has just returned to screens, and as this map proves that the rebooted version of Michael Crichton’s film is now the most popular series on HBO.

Westworld stars James Marsden and Evan Rachel Wood

Research by Frontier and data via Google trends show that people tend to search for shows relevant to the area that they live in. This might also explain why one of the world’s biggest shows, the fictional Game of Thrones, doesn’t feature as highly as one might have expected. Westworld, another fantasy show set in the near-future, does at least maintain identifiable backgrounds and locations.

The series, which is back for a second season, had 20% of America searching for it across all states.

As with last year shows like Ballers, which was filmed in Florida and set there too, was searched by locals more than any other. Californians also showed love for Silicon Valley by once again searching for the comedy series.

One interesting finding this time around was that Washington D.C is the place that looks for HBO shows more than any other city. The most popular shows there were Game of Thrones, Ballers, Insecure, Big Little Lies, The Leftovers, The Deuce and, the appropriately political, Veep.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
