NBC, in what seems to be a misguided attempt to do something less bad than they normally do, has announced their production of Tin Man, the story of a fugitive robot who makes us think about the philosophical implications of artificial intelligence.
It’s a noble effort, but NBC historically doesn’t make people think. It occasionally makes people laugh, and often makes them frustrated, but never horny. An indication this trend will continue is the fact that this series is created by a guy who wrote many, many Transformers movies, Ehren Kruger. So while he might know a little about robots, he doesn’t know much about not pissing people off.
