As I sat poolside with some friends today and reminisced about my yonder years, “Small Wonder” the TV show came up in conversation. How you ask? I have no idea, but before we knew it, we were on YouTube listening to the theme song and trying to watch a complete episode.
I have to say that I am in shock that we don’t have more robots roaming the streets. Or is the joke on me? Vicki the Robot was way ahead of her time. Or was it her “family” that was ahead of the times? Yes, her dad was a robotic engineer, but still, think of how advanced we are now; and those story lines were fron the mid to late 80’s. I wonder how my family would have liked it if I brought a robot child into our home. I think I know what would have happened, we would have gotten the dog we always wanted, and the robot “child” would have been in charge of walking it. Oh well, maybe in my next life time or in 20 years, when robots really are roaming the streets.
