Have it on old Laserdisc.
Though it is low key and pretty boring at times, it is still effective as long as you dont think about simple ways to thwart Colossus too much..
Of course it did have huge plot holes. Like when Colossus took over the missiles and threatened mankind with them, all they had to do was station troops with 50 caliber machine guns around each missile and punch them full of holes before they could get more than a few feet off the ground. Sure you might lose a few soldiers and created quite a radioactive mess, but at the price of freeing humanity from Colossus it would have been a small price to pay. Or they could have blown up all the missiles on the ground before the surveillance cameras were installed. And with missile in silos, just weld shut the hatch covers. At which point you start nuking the mountain where Colusses is housed - eventually with enough nukes, the mountain would vanish.

Can you help me?
Thanks a lot
