Flopcast 378: Here Come the Robots
For no good reason, every summer we present a Top 4 ½ List of robots! So it's time for our eighth annual robot list, and the theme this year is... tiny robots. We have tiny robots from movies, television, music, toys, comic books, and even the real world, where someday soon you could be injected with millions of nanobots and forced to do their bidding. And that day... will be a great day. We're also celebrating actor Sam Elliott's birthday, because we strongly suspect that his mustache is actually a tiny robot. And along the way we somehow get distracted by a Grizzly Adams poster, which is the exact opposite of a tiny robot, but you know, these things happen.
Sam Elliott is turning 75, and we have retroactively added him to the top of our mustache list.
