Too Beard Like?
7 January 2002 | by can-1See all my reviews

Few films have summarised the relationship between man and machine as acutely as Cops And Robin. Borgnine's turn as John Cleaver (he was originally to be called Ben Reid, but the name, bizarrely was ditched for being "too beard-like" by director John T Dugan) is an all time best. Yes, even better than his pug-faced turns in Marty, Airwolf and Baseketball. His android partner is perhaps even better. Overall, Cops And Robin is not only the film with the best title ever but one of TV's finest hours. I was in a 24-hour petrol ststion the other day and the man behind the glass agreed! so it's just me and man named Raj at the moment but the campaign to bring Cops and Robin back begins here!

8/10
