Cliff De Young,
The episode "Prime Suspect" plays out like a remake of "The Fugitive" movie, with Robocop in the role of Kimble. Even going so far as to replicate the Kimble/Gerard face off in the sewers down to the dialogue. This episode was also based on the "Prime Suspect" Dark Horse comic. See more »
This TV series actually manages to capture more of the original than either of the two theatrical sequels. Okay, it's toned down for television, but the self-parodying humor is there in all the right places. It's basically a live-action cartoon, as the like of Cray Z. Mollardo, the E Coli Brothers, and Pudface Morgan return time and time again to battle the stone-faced Robocop. We get a bit more on Murphy's background (although his wife shows up _way_ too often), and there are lot of parody-commercials. It's a lot better than a lot of the first-run syndication stuff out there. Catch it on the Sci-Fi Channel.
