This episode was mildly amusing to watch because of the zany characters. However, the story was dead - I didn't really care what happened at the end and that's a bad sign for a movie like this.

Basically, the story takes place in the year 2077 and involves a rich (almost retarded) woman's attempt to save a biological robot's life. This eventually becomes a legal fight.

I think the goal of the story was to examine the legal rights of genetically created humanoids. This could have been interesting, but it wasn't. The efforts to build sympathy for the humanoid didn't really work well enough. Furthermore, the legal arguments were kind of a letdown - weak and not very thought-provoking.

The only mild entertainment was watching crazy people talk for duration of the show. It was good acting, but brainless chatter. It never amounted to anything.

There's plenty of sci-fi on TV, you can spend your time better elsewhere.
