Trivia / RoboCop: The Series

  • Casting Gag: The late Martin Milner appears in "The Human Factor" and "Corporate Raiders" as Alex Murphy's father, Russell Murphy. Turns out, the apple didn't fall fat from the tree, as Russell as a cop, too.
  • Defictionalization: GPS that provides driving directions and real time updating of traffic conditions via the Internet? Nowadays, we have something similar called Waze. What the show portrayed was pretty much Rule of Cool back in the 90s when all real-life GPS devices could do was provide the user with a coordinate in numeric form and a rudimentary compass function, and you had to use a map with it to figure out where you are.
  • Playing Against Type: Barring brainwashing and an instance of police bruatlity, Tim Malloy isn't really like a lot of Kim Coates's other characters. That said... yeah... he does suffer the same fate as a lot of them.
  • You Look Familiar: The series had a few actors who would appear in later installments. Blu Mankuma, wno played Reed's counterpart, Stan Parks, voiced a version of Reed in Alpha Commando. Maurice Dean Wint and Geraint Wyn Davies, who respectively played John Cable and David Kaydick in RoboCop: Prime Directives appeared in The Series as a gang leader in "Officer Down" and an OCP executive in "Provision 22" (again respectively). Lastly, Daniel Kash, who played cartel boss Reggie Braga, played Corrupt Cop John Lake in the reboot.
