Re: RoboCop: The Series

I hated Prime Directives. For one thing, RoboCop was completely miscast -- the guy was too small for the suit and got no movement coaching to speak of, so he flailed around like a kid in a Halloween costume. And he was written and played like a generic wisecracking tough cop, nothing like the fascinating man-machine hybrid of R:TS. Also, from what I recall of it, Prime Directives forgot that, as I said before, the original film was a comedy, a satire. PD didn't have the humor of the original or R:TS, so it was dull in comparison. Anyway, I found it so unpleasant that I only watched the first two installments at most; I'm not sure I even finished part 2.
