    25:14
    Between Metropolis and Star Wars lies a 50 year wasteland of terrible movie robots. Every week we rate the robot from a movie, if it gets a score of 7 out of 10 then we say that it is not a shit robot. Today, we deep-dive into the 1974 movie, WHO?, as we try and work out if the robot is who the robot claims. WARNING!
