* RecycledScript: ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep''-type plots have been done [[BubblegumCrisis millions]] [[ArmitageIII of]] [[Film/BladeRunner times]] before. This is not to say it can't be done again, but you should make sure you story is not a cliché ''Film/BladeRunner'' knockoff. If your trenchcoat-clad hero fights runaway robots and doubts his own humanity... you'd better be a damn fine writer, son!
