If you have not heard of the Uncanny Valley, go here (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/UncannyValley) and be prepared to spend the rest of the day on that site.

For everyone else, which performance by a human do you find falls into the UV?

Commander Data is the first one to come to mind. Sometimes, he does it a bit too well.

I've come to think of the Uncanny Valley more generically. For example, I love Coca-Cola. However, when it comes to diet drinks I prefer Diet Pepsi over Diet Coke, even though it tastes less like Coke.

In other words, Diet Coke is in my Uncanny Valley of taste. The Diet Pepsi tastes like a diet drink, which I can accept, whereas the Diet Coke tastes like a bad coke.
