Terminator fans and robot fetishists rejoice! This week’s pilot features a secret conspiracy of world domination, and an inexplicably British protagonist who sleeps with not one but two lady robots.
In 1986 NBC commissioned Annihilator, a pilot about a man who discovers that humans are being replaced by dog killing, limb severing, chain smoking robot dopple-gangers. Obviously, his immediate reaction is to tell everyone and act completely surprised when nobody believes him. His second plan is to perform a ridiculous amount of property damage, trust anyone who puts out, and then frame his crimes on homeless people.
Longtime listeners will understand this – get ready for an Invincible-level pilot.
