Hilarious Robot In Love Episode
9 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has always been a favorite episode of mine since robots shouldn't fall in love, and of course the Robinson Robot B-9 isn't just any robot, so he does. The evil female robot uses all sorts of underhanded manipulations to get what she wants out of B-9 and, like any dumb sap who's infatuated, the love-struck robot carries out all her commands. He knows she's bad, but he can't help but get sucked into her diabolical plans. We don't have "vamps" the way they used to in showbiz, the concept is blatantly sexist and unflattering to women. Sure, we have evil chicks in TV shows nowadays, but some of the sexist stuff that goes on in this episode is seriously dated and fun to watch -- it wouldn't fly today. Letters would be pouring in from womens' groups complaining about the tone. Ah well, at least we can enjoy watching henpecked B-9 travel down a path many men have found themselves on when dealing with unscrupulous and self-serving females. I can agree with another contributor that this is episode is not serious stuff at all, but disagree that it's not "good" -- it is a laugh riot and lots of campy fun (most episodes where the robot gets to expand his role usually are). Yes, that's Lyle Waggoner from "The Carol Burnett Show" as one of the silver skinned aliens. The contributor also misinforms by saying The Robinsons fall in love with the evil female robot; this is not the case at all; Robot B-9 keeps his shameless lady-love a secret from his space family and only sneaks off to visit her on the down-low. It's a classic scenario that could have come out of a film noir, with the "bad girl" ultimately ruining the family man who is haplessly in love with her.
