Murphy's back: But in the true and original way?
7 April 2001 | by (Delta City) – See all my reviews

Now, I know that many people have been knocking the '94 RoboCop series.

As much as I'd like to put a stop to that, I sadly cannot. I saw the series back when I was about 10 or so, so I can't remember much, and I only saw occasional glimpses, and maybe an episode or two in '98, or around that area.

I grew up with RoboCop, needless to say. The Series had a big influence on me, and since I was 10 (around there), I was astounded. Violence didn't matter much to me, but I always looked up to RoboCop as my hero. RoboCop had became a household name in my family, and I can recall watching the original movie endless amounts of time when I was 5 or so.

But this isn't about the original RoboCop.

It's about the supposedly live-action series made in '94. (I honestly couldn't tell the difference, I was too young.)

Though I noticed that the violence had been toned down a bit, it didn't matter to me. It was RoboCop, simply put, my childhood hero (whom is still my hero), and that was all there was to it. RoboCop: The Series was a finely done project, and I'm sure many think that way. Many seem to think violence is what made RoboCop so good, and I agree in many situations.

RoboCop: The Series is a classic. In fact, aside from Prime Directives, which, might I add, came out this year, or around there (I can't recollect the date.), The Series is one of the best RoboCop sequels/continuations of the 'franchise'.

It goes deeper into Murphy's past, explaining much more, but it only had 23 episodes. People just got sick of it, I guess, but, I loved every second of it.

Remember, friends, before you bash RoboCop: The Series, remember the positive things about it and the little things that made it at least a smidgen good. It was made in 1994, not now.



... If they could have only gotten Peter Weller back...
