It's 2005, and Motor City is a shambles. The forces of evil run rampant. Fortunately for us, a supremely efficient law-enforcement machine patrols the streets of Detroit. Yes, as you probably guessed from the title, the B-movie cyber-action series is now a TV cyber-action series.

Richard Eden plays the former cop killed in the line of duly, then reanimated and mechanized. He fights crime while haunted by visions from his human past. Yvette Nipar and Blu Mankuma play his allies on the force.

The formula translates well to the small screen in part because the original source material was pretty cheesy to begin with and in part because the RoboDude is one potent multimedia icon.
