      Dorian is hilarious. In spite of the serious plot-line this episode was all sorts of funny. I'm loving the dynamic between the two main characters. Still feel like laughing when I think about cats being allergic to Kennex :D

      After all the talk about destroying the sex bot, was I alone in going "Phew!", when they just shut her down? It looked like the tilting bed was going to retract into the cylinder and maybe torch her as Dorian stood behind a shielded window!
      Liked the humour in this ep. Gave it more sparkle along with the emotive edge.

    • protonefrid Nov 20, 2013

      they might still torch her/it. They have to destroy her/it so shutting down is most probably just the first part otherwise someone might turn it on later. Anyway, I got the same impression as you when Dorian got behind the glass wall and was starting to get worried they might destroy her without shutting her down.first.
      Damn, she made me feel sorry for her...

      Exactly. The whole show revolves around the backdrop of sentience and morality.
      The only hope for her/it is to become one of Rudy's lab bunnies for him to talk to after a hard days work;)

      Wow this episode was really, really good. If the show can keep this up I will be very impressed.

      I think the MVP was Dorian, for telling that bot that she would be going "to a better place" And that he would remember her. Also for delivering the most hilarious scenes of the episode with John in the car. "Don't scan my testicles, ever again."
