“C’ will be a Syfy action adventure one hour episodic that delves into the past and technological advances that the future holds. The Syfy Drama “Westworld” explores the creation theory from a scientific point of view, in an “Us or Them” mathematical equation, which allows it room to explore various life events through a game. It is at its best when one or more of the characters recognize that they are trapped by their own existence. setting off a dangerous illusion.  As well, the hit television series’ Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels. It follows a dynastic conflict among competing Clans for succession to the Iron Throne. It is perceived as a sort of medieval realism, the story feels more like historical fiction than contemporary fantasy, with less emphasis on magic and sorcery and more on battles, political intrigue, and the characters. Believing that magic should be used moderately in the epic fantasy genre, Game of Thrones becomes extremely intriguing when the questions of redemption and character changes the outcome, allowing the audience to view different characters from their perspective.

ALEXIS COLETTE

"Eric, a man on the brink of death is in a coma. In this state, he has three frightening, yet powerful dreams that reveal shocking truths long before he was born, enmeshing the provocative "National 'Burlesk' Theatre" and ground- breaking therapy at the "Eloise Home for the Insane" in Detroit, during the late 1920's-1940's. In his first dream, Eric chases a ghost, the legendary Colette. Colette offers him a quid pro quo; she will help him out of his coma, if he helps her move on. Unfortunately, there are many ghosts! They have their stories as well. These ghosts entwine Eric in a vicious game, as they were once children trapped at the Eloise Asylum. Eric, like Colette, in her real life, must decide what is real, what is true, and furthermore, choose whether to live or die.
