I watched Chopping Mall today, a goofy sample of 80s cheese that represents a popular sub-genre in science fiction and horror: The KILLER ROBOT movie. I started thinking of other malevolent killing machines that have been featured in cinema and television and compiled a short list. I'm sure there are about a hundred more so please contribute...

"May I point out that I had an opportunity to observe your counterparts here quite closely. They were brutal, savage, unprincipled, uncivilized, treacherous -- in every way, splendid examples of homo sapiens, the very flower of humanity. I found them quite refreshing."

Remember, one cannot make footprints in the sands of time by sitting on their butt, and who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

I'll post this here rather than start a new thread - I watched the ep of Galactica 1980 where Starbuck is trapped on the planet with a Cylon for the first time in 30 years. Wow. Sometimes it's better to never go back. I remember it being a very moving episode, and it really REALLY was not.
