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.

RoboCop has always seemed like a series ripe to be bad. The first film is impressively great. Two and three were bad. However, they were not cheesy bad or indulgent bad. They were boring for the most part. (Consider what an impressive feat it is to make a movie about a cyborg cop boring). Yet, there they are. The thankfully short lived TV show only managed to take this to new heights. All the pacing and excitement of RoboCop 3, but this time with daytime soap actors!
Ugh. I'd like to be more in depth, but this show wasn't worth the amount of time it took me to type this, let alone watch it.
