Last month we discussed the deadly machines from TERMINATOR, THE MATRIX, and lots of other movies, books, television series. In July we will examine the more helpful side of machines.

Part 2: Discussion
The Discussion will be held at 8:00 PM at The Fine Grind Coffee Bar in Little Falls. It's on Route 23 South (aka Newark Pompton Turnpike), in a strip mall a half mile or so to the south of the Willowbrook Mall.
There have been lots of friendly robots and useful machines in movies, books and real life. As a starting point, think of WALL-E, A.I. and Robbie the Robot (FORBIDDEN PLANET). As usual, the focus is on works of fantasy, science fiction & horror.
You don't have to make the dinner to attend the discussion.
The discussion is not limited to films. Television series, books, comic books and other genres are all grist for the mill.
Here's a list of topics we've discussed in the past:
