Thirteen years after the original Robocop, Delta City, considered to be "The Safest Place On Earth!", has become a futuristic city owned and operated by OCP, and RoboCop, Alex Murphy has begun to feel his age. Murphy finds himself nearly obsolete, and must deal with the fact that his now-grown son James is an OCP executive, unaware that his father is still alive. Also, Murphy's former partner, John Cable, has returned to Delta City as its new Security Commander. But slowly, new enemies arise, and Murphy and Cable begin an investigation into a mysterious villain known as the Bone Machine, unaware that they are coming dangerously close to exposing an evil group of OCP executives known as The Trust... which James Murphy is a part of. Desperate to prevent their sinister plans from being revealed, The Trust programs Murphy to kill John Cable... Written by Kevin Riley

Did You Know?


Page Fletcher was originally offered the role of 'Alex J. Murphy/RoboCop' in RoboCop (1994) but turned it down due to a recent falling out with television producers in previous series and other TV work. See more »


At the end of the second part, Meltdown, this quote is given: "The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots." The film credits it to Thoreau, which is impossible, as the word "robot" did not enter the English language until more than sixty years after Thoreau's death. This quote is actually from Erich Fromm.

A RoboCop:PD Review
19 August 2000 | by (Hauntario) – See all my reviews

gun play galore, killer laser beams, explosions, bustin' glass, back stabbing, martial arts, psychotic killers and this all happens in the "safest place on earth to live"? Remind me never to vacation in Delta City!

Sounds like something right out of Hollywood right? Well that's almost correct, try Hollywood North.

I'm speaking of the new mini series Robocop: Prime Directives made by Julian Grant and written by Brad Abraham and Joseph O'Brien.

I had the pleasure and privilege to attend the theatrical showing of the entire series on Sunday afternoon and it was time well spent. Julian Grant was there to introduce the film and spoke in between chapters, he seems very proud of the work him and his crew accomplished and he has every reason to be. Along with Grant, some of the other cast and crew were on hand to watch it with us as well, writers Brad and Joeseph, RoboCop himself Page Fletcher, along with Maurice Dean Wint as John Cable and actress Leslie Coles as Ashley St. John-Smythe the MediaNet anchor.

The series has it all, action, drama, a bit of horror and the outrageous humour that was born with the original. And I mean outrageous, some of it had the audience roaring.

The story is very well written IMO. Joe and Brad put some more human emotion into RoboCop that I quite liked, it makes you really feel for the character. There are times when I just wanted someone to give the guy a hug and tell him that "it's okay". At the same time, RoboCop is still the strict enforcer of the law and at times damn right mean. There is at least one shocking scene when Robo gets carried away and does something that I am sure he was not programmed for, I'll just leave it at that for fear of spoiling. There is all kinds of deceit going on, you don't know who will end up good or bad, who's going to live through the 4 parts, who's not. The plot line really makes you want to keep watching. I feel sorry for the folks that have to watch it over 4 days, I had to know what was going to happen next right then and there.

The special effects were well done, you don't feel like you are watching some cheap quickly shot B-movie. I'm not sure what the budget was but it looks big. RoboCop looks used and abused and it goes well with the storyline because they mention that many of his parts are outdated and not even produced anymore, it's 10 years after the first movie. Plus he just plain old takes a real beating in the movie!

The shoot was mammoth from what we were told, 88 days if I recall correctly. Folks this is a big project that these people put a lot of time and effort into and I'm sure many personal sacrifices were made. You can tell that the people involved were fans of RoboCop as they stay true to the feel of the original movie. If you have any reservations about this show, try and dispose of them, there is really no need for them. Try going into viewing this series in a positive frame of mind, it's *GOOD*.

Congrats and best of luck to all who worked on the series!
