How Do You Kill A Man That's A Machine?

Three years ago, I wrote a terrific post (if I do say so myself) about the shortlived television series BEYOND WESTWORLD, which ran very briefly on CBS in 1980. Above, you see the TV Guide ad for the premiere, and below you can watch the first couple of minutes and listen to Jerrold Immel's theme, which was probably the best thing about the series.

Actress Judith Chapman was replaced after the pilot with Connie Sellecca (THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO), who appears in this episode along with her robot twin!

I'm surprised nobody has remade the original WESTWORLD film yet or at least found a way to revive BEYOND WESTWORLD, which had a good premise.
