FtL 125 – Steel Justice

Promises a giant, fire-breathing robot Tyrannosaurus. Delivers a Blade Runner ripoff about a man going mad with grief over the death of his child.

It was 1992, and NBC aired a made-for-TV movie (code for failed pilot) based around a crime fighting robot dinosaur. You would think that NBC’s blatant cash in on Robosaurus‘ popularity would actually feature the 2.2 million dollar car eating machine, but if you’ve been listening to our show then you should know better.

In a post global warming future (it’s a little bit warm), we follow the story of David Nash, an ace cop trying (and failing) to come to terms with the death of his child. He puts everything in jeopardy to pursue his son’s killer, a man who pretends to be a Colonel and has a warehouse full of super suspicious boxes.

Then Nash meets a man who claims to be magic and ejaculates up the ghost of his dead son in the form of a giant robot Dinosaur after he learns to believe in himself. Not a comedy.
