December 17, 1999 saw a film about a robot - or more specifically, an android, who wanted nothing more than to discover what humanity was all about.

Robin Williams, dressed up to be an NDR model of robot, plays Andrew Martin, a robot trying to discover what it takes to be a man. 

He is hated, he is belittled because he is different - but all he strives for is to figure out what becoming human is really all about. He discovers love, he helps humanity - and he gains what he truly deserved - to go from immortality to knowing the secret of life.

Join Doug Abel and Mike Blanchard as we discuss a film that, while criticized, will make you smile, cry and think about what it is that makes you who you are, with the movie based on an Isaac Asimov novella, Bicentennial Man.
