Based on a novella by the late Isaac Asimov, Bicentennial Man was perhaps one of Robin Williams’ best films, in my opinion. A robot who was different, who wanted to be human, more and more, and yet was constrained by the 3 Laws of Robotics:
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Come take a listen as we discuss this great, often overlooked film.
