Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP59 - Mann & Machine

May 7, 2019

Crime is a computer virus… She’s the cure! We watched the absolutely ridiculous, ultra-90s cyber-police procedural, Mann & Machine! From the creator of Law and Order comes the classic story of a grumpy butthole police detective who hates robots but is forced to team up with a beautiful and acrobatic android who has a pre-school education and a love of chocolate donuts! What a mismatched pair! Zany robo-antics most definitely ensue.

This week Mike is joined by guest host Tiffany since Morgan is on the other side of the country (but don’t worry, she still makes an appearance). That means you’re in for plenty of talk about sexy robot lawyers, the consistency of android skin, and the dangers of secondhand smoke on robots. Plus Tiff gives a detailed history of The Fast and the Furious, Mike wonders why no one can close a car door, and we cross our fingers that Dick Wolf finally steps in front of the camera and shows the world his acting abilities!

Go-go-gadget podcast!
