Thanks talljak. I guess when they are shown eating that's so people will think that they are really human. I can't remember where I saw it but I recall in one SCI-FI movie a character saying that in some advanced humanoids they could sweat and had B.O. and bad breath to appear more human-like.
Here's hoping that this series returns for another season
I really enjoyed the short ride while this season lasted (plot holes and all). It was a pleasant change from many of the dumb reality shows that are on (not all reality shows are bad; but there sure is a lot of "filler" lately).
"I find her acting to be a bit flat and emotionless."
Yeah, me too. Sorta robotic. Seriously though, I think she gives her character just enough
android movements (jerky head motions etc.) and lack of emotion to be believable.
If she started walking around stiff-legged like Frankenstein's monster, it would really looked phony. IMHO
Edit: I believe it was in Blade Runner where one of the characters said that the latest models of the Replicants were able to sweat etc. The movie still holds up well today even though it was made years ago without the aid of CGI, blue/green screens, and other computer technology.
Kyle Reese: The 600 series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy, but these are new. They look human - sweat, bad breath, everything. Very hard to spot. I had to wait till he moved on you before I could zero him.
I think the Summer Glau skin will come back. Obviously John in the future has a thing for highschool age girls. Because, of course, he didn't just send a robot that looks like Summer Glau to meetup with young John. Based on Brian Austin Green's memories, John Connor created a robot that looked like a high school girl some time in the future to hang around them.
One thing about a tv series is the whole premise makes no sense. I mean, why not send a robot to 1846 and kill off John Connor's great-great-great-great grandfather. Probably be a lot easier.
Also, these robots must be pretty realstic because that one actually appears to have slept with that lady who created the traffic computer. How did his "thing" operate?
