Pod Stallions 41 : Robots!

For our 41st episode (and 3rd of 2016 if you’re keeping count) we’re joined by Famous Monsters of Filmland Editor David Weiner (@tikiambassador) for a discussion of all things robotic.

We each pick and discuss our personal three favourite and least favourite mechanical men from film and television over the decades and discuss why. Along the way, we talk about toys, comics and even radio drama.

We open the show with some words about the influence David Bowie and the crummy news that January delivered.

Topics Discussed: Black Hole, Doctor Who, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Phantom Creeps, Millennium, Lost in Space, Buck Rogers, Logan’s Run, Filmation, Space Academy.

Hit us up on our facebook page with your top three best and worst!

    I like to think that the constant humming in the background was from one of you guys having a robot servant vacuuming the living room or something..

    A-Roy Batty is not an robot. he's a genetically-designed person.

    B-Bishop from "Alien" should not qualify, as he's presented as human through-out the movie until the end.

    C-Any human-looking robot should be disqualified since it;s just actors playing around with no real design.

    D-It's silly to choose C3PO and not Maria (from "Metropolis") whom he copied.

    E-"Small Wonder" is great, you people are just humorless.

    F-Too much Bowie ass-kissing, yet nothing about Alan Rickman (though his name was mentioned). Bowie is an over-rated leech who made a career out of copying anyone original who came within his sight; first Lou Reed, then Iggy Pop, later Kraftwerk, anyone innovative he pounced on and copied.
