    Watched "The Lonely" again on the NYD marathon and could not help but wonder.....

    Do you think Alicia, the robot, comes complete with.......uh........ummmmm......you know........"all the requisite equipment" to make her a real human female?

    I mean she is able to cry tears, she has a memory track, doesn't it stand to reason that she would be a fully developed female?

    I realize people did not think about these things in the Fifties, but I think that element of the story is there.

    BTW: I had only known Jean Marsh as the frumpy maid, Rose, on Upstairs Downstairs. I never realized how pretty she was.

    Well, if I was in the guy's position, I'd hope so. If, however, she was just like a Barbie, then no.
