In I, Robot, the protagonist Adam Link is created and educated by an aging scientist, who keeps the idealistic robot in his house, safe from discovery. But when the scientist dies, Adam Link blunders into the real world. There he finds his fine ideals about humanity and his attempt to make friends repelled by those he meets, who view him as a Frankenstein monster. Soon Adam finds himself a fugitive, hunted down by a humanity intent on putting an end to his mechanical life.
I, Robot, is an unforgettable story, whose timeless theme is as powerful and relevant today as it was when the author first penned it. Perhaps that's why the producers of the original Outer Limits and the New Outer Limits both chose to adapt it for the television series (with Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy appearing in both productions).

"The Golden Age"
As a Robot Fan, An Asimov Fan and a Sci-Fi history fan, I had to get this. It starts out with a lengthy telling of the difference between this I, Robot and Asimov's I Robot. A little Science Fiction History that I enjoyed hearing. The story is dated, but it was a good story, that led to the robot as a good guy. The production has music which I felt added to the mood of the story. I know some people don't like added music, but I liked it.
If you are a true Science Fiction Fan, you need this in your collection.
"Very good story, regardless of the name used!"
Finished in one lunch hour. I would like to listen to more short stories of this quality and length.
