Since it’s 30 years since the iconic, brilliant Robocop was released, we ask, what made it so good? And why did the 2014 remake miss the mark?

In this episode:

We hail Paul Verhoeven, the king of SciFi

Joel Kinnaman makes his return to Diminishing Returns (as does Ronny Cox)

HR procedures in OCP

Going to work with a smile with Clarence Boddicker and gang

The late, great Miguel Ferrer

Peter Weller and the other great pop culture Weller

And another almost certainly uncannily accurate impression from Chris!

 

Remind yourself of the films here:

and
