    "Surprisingly Modern..."

    This story might not seem incredibly original, but the fact is that those other stories are just repeats of this, the first story about Robots.

    The dialogue is a little overwrought in a few places, which is the only thing that keeps this from getting five stars. The performers do a good job with it, though.

    It's truly surprising how well the story holds up after all this time.
