    Or does that scene in City Of, where Angel pushes Russell out of the widow, making him fall down until he burns alive look very similar to the ending of Robocop?

    Well, yeah. Although Dick Jones wasn't sitting in a chair when he went through the window. I think Whedon is well known for referencing old movies and TV shows - imitation is the highest form of flattery and all that.

    I loved that scene. Russell was so smug. He deserved being pushed out of that window.
    And yes, it does look similar to that Robocop scene.

    And for the record, I LOVED ED-209!! I own the dvd and continually play the scene where he malfunctions. :D

    He also asks if he can fly, which is in another scene in Robocop. I thought the reference was quite overt.
