Why Was She So Robotic?, 31 May 2014
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

This is about an overzealous man who is trying to maintain his position on a firm that produces androids. In the second episode ever, we were introduced to Valerie whose programming led her to attempt murder. That put a kabosh on the project and it's on its last legs. The proposal is to create mega-nannies, using the Mary 25 series. Once again a beautiful young actress is the basis for the character. She has been programmed to look after kids. But unlike Valerie, she speaks in a disjointed, vapid speech pattern. She is taken to the project manager's house to tend his own children, much to the annoyance and fear of his beautiful wife. Things are very awkward. He begins to mistreat his wife, hitting her several times. The Mary 25 can do little things like read to the kids and answer their questions in a Sheldon Cooper kind of way, with encyclopedic knowledge (they ask her if the Big Bad Wolf would blow a house down and she replies that it is a physical impossibility). She has no charm and her selling point seems to be that she is amazingly strong and could disable any sort of intruder on the children's life. She is a total failure. We realize why she was made to look like she does when the project manager begins to have relations with her. There is another subplot involving the wife and her former lover. He hangs around the house trying to rekindle things. He is a major engineer in the designing of androids. This episode has a nice full circle ending that is enjoyable.
