I think that ultimately the show didn't have much to say about robots that hadn't been said before.

I think it will survive the test of time and find an audience that appreciates it.

It already has at least one. Even the people that don't like it still seem to have thngs to say about it.

I suspect the haters will not be swayed by the finale, but I was satisfied. I thought it was a great series, but certainly not for all tastes.

It's getting good again. Cheers for getting away from the constant gloom and moving on to an offensive, however prone to failure it might be.
