Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

REM: In the 1977 TV show Logan's Run, REM is Mountain City's advanced android repairman. Logan is a "sandman" who kills people on their 30th birthday. He realizes that "Hey! I'll turn 30 someday." Thus, with the help of Jessica, he leaves Domed City. However, there is a sandman on his tail. Logan and Jessica end up at Mountain City which is a city that serves humans. Not like that! They wish to make life as comfortable as possible for their human masters. They love humans so much that they do not want to let them go. So, Logan and Jessica need REM's help to escape Draco and Siri. Siri? Where have I heard that name before? Anyway, REM joins Logan and Jessica on their run from the law, and their many adventures. I am surprised they did not end up with dozen's of people on the run with them since they regularly gathered another person upon escaping a city.

Dwayne's Computers That Byte

"The Old Man in the Cave": In the 1963 Twilight Zone episode "The Old Man in the Cave" it is 1974 and a small group of town's people have survived for ten years after a nuclear war. The people seem to always go against the advice of a certain Mr. Goldsmith.  Mr. Goldsmith gets his advice from "The Old Man in the Cave".  By going against the "Old Man", they plant crops in areas that were declared radioactive.  Consequently, they have a bad harvest. This is very reminiscent of the tribes of Israel, Moses, and God. Eventually, a group of soldiers arrive.  These soldiers declare that a pile of canned goods that the "Old Man" has declared radioactive is actually good. The soldiers also force Mr. Goldsmith to show everyone this "Old Man" that has been keeping everyone alive for ten years. When it is revealed that the "Old Man" is actually a computer, the people destroy it.  With the food declared good, everyone except Mr. Goldsmith eat it. The next morning everyone is dead -- except one lonely Mr. Goldsmith. In a bit of role reversal here instead of a computer that bites, it is the humans who have bite.  They just bit themselves in the ass.

Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

Mr. Roboto: In the rock opera Kilroy Was Here, Mr. Roboto was just a robotic prison guard who was overpowered by Robert Orin Charles Kilroy.  Kilroy was sent to this prison by Majority for Musical Morality because he was a rock and roll misfit.  In any event, Kilroy overpowered Mr. Roboto and hollowed him out to escape the prison.  Who is the monster now?

Dwayne's Computers That Byte

G.E.E.C: Goodfellow's Effort Eliminating Computer was created by Dr. Goodfellow in 1973 on the cartoon Super Friends. It could perform all kinds of fantastical stuff like teaching students at home or computer generated actors for movies. Yeah right. Like that could ever happen. Well, as with all giant supercomputers it is too good to be true and G.E.E.C.  is no exception and it is up to the Super Friends to shut it down. Why would you put the off switch inside a satellite?

Now the robots are trying to take our musician's jobs.

Maybe I'm old, but this video doesn't worry me. The mix is bad. The drummer is way too loud. It is just a mishmash of noise to me. And you kids get off my lawn!

Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

Garth A7: In the movie Cyborg 2087, a cyborg is sent back in time to 1966 in order to change the past.  He must terminate an invention in order to prevent the rise of the machines.  No wait. He must convince an inventor to not proceed with his mind control device which the government has been using (will be using?) in the future.  If he succeeded, and the device is never used then he would not need to go back in time.  However, if he did not go back in time, then the invention would exist.  If the device existed, then he would need to go back in time...

Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

BB (aka Bee Bee): Paul is a super genius college student who creates a hyper-intelligent robot named BB in Wes Craven's Deadly Friend.  Naturally, the robot is destroyed in a prank.  When a friend of Paul's is nearly beaten to death by her abusive father, the AI chip is implanted in her to bring her back to life.  This leads to predictable outcomes for both the destroyer of BB and the abusive father.
