WARNING: Not All That You See On Television Is Real

I ran across this article on IMDb: Italians Call For Ban On Medical Dramas

I can't wait for the Robotic Industries Association to follow suit and go after shows like Battlestar Galactica, The Sarah Connors Chronicles and Futurama.

Perhaps they should run a disclaimer before these shows:
The robots, androids, humanoids and/or machines depicted in the following program may not reflect the current state of innovation in Robotic Sciences. If the images and/or sounds of the aforementioned program cause you to momentarily suspend reality and escape to an imaginative world where robots are either (a) your loyal friend, (b) your sworn enemy, (c) your compliant servant, (d) your willing lover, (e) a prosthetic appendage, and/or (f) anything else that you can think of, please don't adjust your expectations of the current robotic field to that of a complete work of fiction. We're trying here, okay?! Do you know how hard it is to make a goddam pile of metal, plastic and wires climb some stairs? It's pretty fucking hard, all right?! Give us a break here...
