Since the dawn of television, there's been sci-fi and as long as there's been sci-fi, there have been robots.

What's been interesting is not only how more sophisticated they are, but how recent TV shows have shifted towards making robots look like humans rather than more mechanical. Hell, 'Westworld' was entirely based around the premise, as was the reboot of 'Battlestar Galactica'.

The twelve we've picked, however, should be pretty easy to recognise.
