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 worthy effort.
1 July 2002 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

It's clear that Julian Grant, Brad Abraham and Joseph O'Brien are fans of Robocop. They have updated the series for the new millenium and spin on a few ideas of their own.

John Cable was an excellent addition to Robocop. Him and Alex Murphy are great to see in action. Cable is similar to Murphy in many ways: family man, law man, takes no nonsense. Full credit to Maurice Dean Wint. His wife, Sara Cable, reminds me of Clarance Boddiker in a few ways as well.

However, some things just don't work: Page Fletcher is physically wrong for Murphy. He's 5 ft 7. Hardly intimidating. Even his son towers over him and his nose is massive, although he does a good job of handling the emotions. The idea to have Robocop constantly shutting down and jumping when shot like an epileptic gets tiring after a while.

Ultimately, a worthy effort.
