* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/HarlanEllison wrote a screenplay in TheSeventies (it's still in print!) which was much closer to Asimov's anthology. Unfortunately, the plot (which looked back on Susan Calvin's life in a manner deliberately similar to ''Film/CitizenKane'') and the FX-heavy scenes (which included a lost city in the Amazon and a duel in what would later be called {{cyberspace}}) [[ExecutiveMeddling didn't fit the producer's vision and/or budget]], so it was shelved. Oddly enough, some [=DVD=]s of the 2004 film came bundled with a copy.
