Michael Harwick’s Top 5 Depressed Robots in Popular Culture

A ranking of famously depressed robots in pop culture, though there are MANY others who could have made the list.

1) Marvin, The Paranoid Android – The robot consigned to manual labor onboard the Heart of Gold in Douglas Adams’s hilariously bleak Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books. His depression stems from being made responsible for no task that can fully engage his vast intelligence, despite a planet-sized brain that makes him 50,000 times more intelligent than a human. In his words, “My capacity for happiness, you could fit into a matchbox without taking out the matches first.”

2) Butter Robot – A breakout and infinitely meme-able character from the first season of Rick and Morty, Butter Robot’s sole purpose is to pass the butter, and Rick is unafraid to tell him so. Unfortunately, the revelation of Butter Robot’s limited utility causes it to have a minor existential crisis. Happily, no real-life version of Butter Robot has yet to develop a crippling self-awareness of its own limited agency (“Yeah, welcome to the club, pal”).

3) Wall-E – Disney’s wide-eyed mobile trash compactor protecting a post-apocalpytic terrestrial wasteland has his cube-filled world turned upside down with the arrival of a sleek and shiny iBotwho goes by EVE. But when she fulfills her directive eons before Wall-E can possibly carry out his cleanup, he enters a lovelorn depression that leads him on an intergalactic quest to save his electric dream girl – and humanity.

4) Dolores (Westworld) – Jonathan Nolan’s mind-bending reboot of the Michael Crichton cult film centers on the developing consciousness of an artificially intelligent Alice in Wonderland. Trapped in a narrative loop that forces her to see her father get killed over and over again and endure countless species of physical and sexual abuse, it’s no wonder the name she has been given means “sorrows.”

5) David (A.I. Artificial Intelligence) – Spielberg’s take on the late Stanley Kubrick’s final existential drama met with mixed reviews upon release, but time has been kind to the world’s most expensive Pinocchio. As a permanent child, David’s sole purpose is to gratify the emotional needs of childless parents, but the inventive script asks what happens when he, like most humans who live long enough, ends up an orphan. Freud couldn’t have written a better account of the need for parental love.

Episode 14: Social media, breaking news and the November attack at Ohio State University

How the student journalists at OSU rose to the occasion

Social media is often the first harbinger of breaking news, but when that news is dangerous, misinformation and rumors start to fly. That’s where journalists step in to post vetted information, appropriately sourced. But what happens if those journalists are college students? In this episode, we sit down with Spencer Hunt, Ohio State’s Director of Student Media to talk through how his student reporters covered the attack on campus this past November.

Clarification: In this episode, we refer to the text of the Buckeye Alert system as “run, fight, hide.” The actual order was “Run, Hide, Fight.”

Episode 6: What’s the big deal with Pokemon Go?

Since its launch late last week, Pokemon Go has taken the US by storm. Wondering what all the fuss is about? Not into Pokemon? Not a gamer? The Mindset Digital team breaks it down for you, soup-to-nuts style: What is Pokemon Go, why is everybody playing, and what can we learn from the sudden success of this app?


Two quick corrections to this show:

  • Pokemon was originally released on the Nintendo Gameboy Advanced, not the Nintendo DS
  • There are initially 150 Pokemon in Pokemon Go, not 250

We regret the errors.

Episode 4: The Disappearing Episode

Is disappearing the new black? Snapchat certainly thinks so. In this episode, we look at the Snapchat 2.0 update and speculate on what it means for the network’s overall strategy, plus the Mindset Digital team goes in search of the podcast after it inexplicably disappears from iTunes. We have a new bookmarking tool recommendation from Mike Taylor, plus how will Pete and Emma the soft-spoken Intern grapple with what-is or is-not funny on ‘Something on the Internet Guaranteed to Make You Laugh.’
