Shonky Lab 06.05 – Robots in Sci-Fi

ShonkyLabLogoPete and Elton are here this week, after a week off again…. sorry about that, to talk about Robots in Sci-Fi.

Before that there is a bit of chat and news…

1. Fake funeral service proving popular after student holds her own false ceremony

And Now……

The robots the guys talk about range from the obvious R2-D2 from Star Wars, Huey, Dewey, & Louie from Silent Running and B.O.B & V.I.N.Cent from the Black Hole to the robots from ‘The Class of 1999’ and the robots from ‘Runaway’.

We also touch upon
