I've done that sort of thing a few times, myself. So have a few other people i've known. If you know enough stories, you begin to recognize elements of them in other stories, especially when the writers are trying to be cutesy, like sticking the word "lyre" in. That doesn't necessarily mean poor story telling, though. And even if you can predict the ending, it can still be entertaining to see how the plot gets there.

I'm really REALLY wondering how much of Zoa's behavior is programmed in and how much of it is via learning-and-imitation...which I guess would go a long way towards determining if he/she/it should be classified as human.

Here she's seen crossing her legs, which is the kind of thing that COULD be the hard-coded response to a social situation, or could have just been picked up from watching humans. But in comic #30 she awkwardly rubs the back of her neck in panel 5, which I don't think anyone has ever said "this is proper social behavior". Its just a nearly-involuntary reaction when people are feeling just slightly embarrassed and don't know what else to do with themselves.

Alright, unless Lee's Crowning Moment of Awesome involves fighting to give all AI equal rights and all that jazz, in memory of Zoa getting scrapped for not meeting her quota because she hung out with Lee instead of sucking dick, I'm just gonna give up on MY foreshadowing skills.

I hate to say it, but...this is sounding more and more like a show I'd like to actually see.
Neither a creeper nor a jackass be; if you manage these two things, everything else should work itself out.

If Mars is supposed to be producing entertainment, then it sounds like they're failing.
Likes his women like he likes his coffee... a little sweet, a little spicy, a little strong, a little earthy, a little smokey, totally honest, and maybe a little offended by being compared to a beverage.
