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.

I saw this series the first time it was aired on TV. I watched and recorded the entire thing. The first thing I found upsetting was that Mini Me was cast as Robo, the second being the costume was all cheap looking. But as a huge fan of all of the Robo's, I had to find a way to like it..
I was like 6 years old when I saw the first, and I thought it was one of the best movies I had ever seen, Not the kind of movie that can make another that is as good or even better, but part two stands next to it flawless in every way!! (you can't argue this, don't try!!) Then when Peter didn't do the 3rd and it was rated PG-13 I didn't know what was going to happen. But as I watched it the first time I started off not knowing what to think, then I heard him speak, they computered over his voice a little too much but I could tell he was even more of a fan of robo than I. His every move was as if Peter was really the one inside of the costume! They could make another, and Robert John Burke could do it, and it would kick ass by me!! All in all it will never be as good as the first 2 but it is a close second to them.
And now I find myself with the thought that I will never see another big budget full production live action feature film with the name Robocop ever again, so these 4 DVD's have to do.. I can't turn on my super heros, so I have to stay true to what ever holds the name.. So after that is said, the Prime Directives series is just a continuation of a killer story... I wish it would never end.......
