  4. Although I wasn’t a big fan of Buck Rogers, I did like Twiki… esp. that sound he used to make.

  5. Great list….sounds like I gotta start to watch some of these again….(at the resistance of one teen daughter…and another who is complaining because now she LIKES Star Trek…and dreamed her pillow was becoming the borg and taking her over….LOL!

  6. I love the replicators (as bad guys) from Stargate.

    And my favorite robot movie from childhood… “Not Quite Human”! I have all of those movies on VHS somewhere.

  7. Oh geez! I completely forgot about the Replicators. Good one!
