Stefan KanzokDear Jonathan and Rem, recently discovered your podcast and enjoyed previous episodes tremendously! Here a some robots/machines that I did not see on the list:Chip and his squad (from Small soldiers)Eve (from Wall-E) in fact ALL the robots from Wall-E (favorites: the little cleaning guy, the boxing robot)Andrew (from the Bicentennial man)Data (Star Trek)Maximillian (from The black hole)

One more thing about (menacing) robots: Did anyone see the trailer for "Kill Command"? If not - check it out here:

Mark Des CotesThe Sentinels from X-Men: Days of Future Past, V.I.N.C.E.N.T., B.O.B. and Maximilian from Disney's The Black Hole.

Bair InnokentevInterstellar has some really innovative robots named TARS, CASE and KIPP, with their unusual body shape and incredible functionality. I wonder whether they are sentient or not?I would also like to mention Maximillian from the Black Hole, Jaegers from the Pacific Rim and ABC robot from the Judge Dredd (1995).Oh, and finally, does Optimus Prime count as a robot?

Sue LavictoireCan't remember her name but the one from the Jetsons cartoon (Rosie the Robot)

Liz IrwinMy all time favorite is Bender. Cylon's, Wall-e and C3PO. Data is my favorite Android.

Nick JensenI gotta go with Bender as well, he's the best. Then probably The Terminator.
