I thought it was appropriate when Yul Brynner played a robot. I never realized that the West World robot was based on the Magnificent Seven character.

That is OK. Catch them in the reboot in 2003!

But it would be sort of cool to tie the Cylons hating humans to the 80's terminator movies. I know they are not meant to be together, but the story of the robots hating humans has gotten much more sophisticated as the robots in movies has grown.

Well, I'm sorry I missed that, GTOlover. It didn't shlow up in the source materials I've been using -- which have been pretty thorough up until this.

The original series aired in 1978.

Battlestar galactice introduced use to a race of machines that want to destroy humans! This may not have been new, but this was a very popular show and the Cylons became popular halloween costumes for years!
