In honor of my meeting Anthony Daniels this week (the guy who plays C-3PO in Star Wars), I would like to list my favorite robots:
1. R2D2 from Star Wars – I have a theory that all six movies are actually about him, that he is the catalyst that makes everything happen. I think he knew a lot more than he said.
2. C-3PO from Star Wars – He is the most polite and annoying, but great nonetheless.
3. Twiki from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Always interested in what was going on in the 20th century. Frankly, so am I.
4. Data from Star Trek the Next Generation – He was striving to be more human, not knowing that he was more human than human.
5. Terminator – It was scary how he couldn’t be stopped.
6. Bubo - The Owl from Clash of the Titans. I’d love to have him flying around and helping me out. Besides, if money got tight, I could sell him for the gold.
7. HAL2000 from 2001—A Space Odyssey. What are you doing, Dave?
8. NS-5 from iRobot – Where can I get one of those robots? Cook, clean, carry your purse. Perfect! Except for the whole rounding up humans and trying to protect us from ourselves thing that they did.
9. Bender Bending Rodriguez – from Futurama. I’d love to have a few drinks with him.
10. Mars Pathfinder Sojourner Rover – How cool is it to have a real robot on Mars?
11. The Cylons of Battlestar Galactica – Very cool. Some are even sexy! Some don’t even know they are robots.
12. Bishop from Aliens. He could get chopped in half and still save a human.
13. The giant flying robots in “Sky Caption And The World Of Tomorrow”. They were just cool. I mean, 1940’s Art Deco cool.
