Storyline

Karen Garrett, a promising young doctor, is assigned to perform a difficult operation on Teach, an advanced android who has never "blanked" (had his memory erased.) She soon realizes that Teach is much more than an assignment, and is drawn to his desire for a very human life. When Karen takes Teach into the outside world, they soon discover that there is something far more mysterious and dangerous than a medical experiment planned for them. Written by Anonymous

Not that bad
29 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

There are extremely few movie (or TV) versions of Asimov stories. He hated Hollywood, knowing perfectly well that they would water down his stories to complete commercial blandness. He said in an interview once that Hollywood science fiction tends to be 50 years behind the literature. Very true.

The Android Affair, however, is not that bad. It's not a masterpiece, but neither is it complete drek. While not terribly engaging or exciting, it is overall well-produced and well-acted, and the story is coherent, logical and has a good and satisfying ending (which is a rarity). It is of course a fairly low-budget movie that looks like it's produced for television, but it makes its low budget go a long way. Nothing looks awfully artificial or bad; the style is well maintained throughout, and the story itself is not bad at all. So, considering the dearth of Asimov adaptations out there, this one is well worth seeking out for Asimov fans.

6 out of 10.
