It's been ten years since John Connor saved the world by outfoxing the evil cyborg Terminator. The moment marked the end of a dream: the dream of a robot butler for every family and a robot buddy for every kid. After such a betrayal, who could ever trust a robot again? Spookybots is an attempt to reconcile the complex relationship between humans and robots…before it's too late.
