The series was geared more toward younger audiences, meaning that it was also less violent and edgy than the movies. The series ran for just one season, though RoboCop resurfaced on the small screen in a (more violent) Canadian miniseries, RoboCop: Prime Directives, in 2001. Expand

    Smartly and humorously written, spiced with cartoonish mayhem and over-the-top acting, it visually resembles the "Dick Tracy" and "Batman" movies, deals in the sort of speculative scientific fantasy that distinguished "Quantum Leap" and the miniseries "Wild Palms," and provides ... escapist fun. [19 Mar 1994]

    Combines explosive, stylized violence with stinging social commentary and surgical strokes of sharp media satire. [17 Mar 1994]

    RoboCop - The Series works well as a mass-market show. ... It offers action, as opposed to violence. And its ironic humor, though not as hard-edged as the movies', has a sly, subversive bent. [19 Mar 1994]

    Cleaned up, with violence relegated mostly to comic-book action, the pilot proves a semi-hoot.

    [The] pilot ... is cleverly campy enough to rate a revisit. [13 Mar 1994]

    Without the aid of a fast-forward button, I simply wouldn't have been able to watch it from beginning to end. But I think my 4-year-old would like it. [11 Mar 1994]

    Though tonight's two-hour premiere episode is fat with special effects and looks far richer than most TV shows, the concept is already red with rust. ... [The] sense of humor is about as subtle as a whoopee cushion. [18 Mar 1994]
