Series: RoboCop: The Series
RoboCop: The series
is a 1994 Live-Action TV series following on from the RoboCop
films of the 1980/90's; 21 episodes were made with a double feature pilot. The series was aimed at a younger demographic, namely teenagers, as such the violence is toned down with RoboCop going out of his way to use non-lethal alternatives to capture criminals. OCP is now merely incompetent and naive; the Old Man of the film series being replaced by the greedy, but otherwise decent, Chairman.
Starring Richard Eden
the show takes place in an Alternate Continuity
where Delta City
(the goal of OCP in the films) is finally completed; the show ignores the RoboCop 3
. The series has a new set of supporting characters; Detective Lisa Madigan is now his partner, Sgt Stan Parks now runs the precinct, Charlie Lippencott is his technician (and partly responsible for his creation) and adopted orphan
Gadget now hangs around the police station. His son Jimmy is back, but now has a new mother, Nancy Murphy; both of which are kept in the dark over who is under the helmet. In the pilot episode we are introduced to Diana Powers, and after having her brain forcibly removed to run OCP's new Metronet
, runs the city enabling RoboCop access to systems he normally wouldn't have.
The full series is available to watch via Amazon
, and is free for Prime members.
