This month, Daffy and I discuss movie robots. Some want to help us. Others want to enslave humanity. Some want to be human. Others want to use us to power their cities. We run through the good, the bad and the robotic. Daffy provides the history of the word “robot” as well as an explanation of what the heck Mr Roboto was all about. We also talk about why a robot can be a writer’s best friend and why R2-D2 shouldn’t fly.
We’re sticking with the short format we started last month for the Oscars. So you can look forward to a follow-up episode later this week.
