The story revolved around John Moore having to stop the evil scientist, Quaid, as he planned to use the robots in Delos to try to take over the world. Despite being nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards (Outstanding Achievement in Makeup and Outstanding Art Direction For a Series), only five episodes were produced, and only three of them aired before cancellation.

I remember this show from hot afternoons in the early eighties! Wasn't that good really, just a robot spy of the week and how to take over the world plot show! I did like the baddie's female robot who used to turn up in a few episodes though but I can't remember her name! Anyone?
