Almost Human...new show on Fox

23 posts in this topic

If I had cable, I'd watch it for Karl Urban. Tremendous man-crush on that guy. Besides that, not very interested, and I think he deserves better.

Have it recorded, plan to watch.  I like the actors and Minka is in it.

 

As per usual however, it's sci fi and won't last...

 

Most of the time, yes, but this is the team that brought us Fringe (amazing series) and Fringe got a good 5 years despite not having amazing ratings but still having good critical ratings.   Fox is better than the other networks albeit not a lot better though.  But they seem to give this Bad Robot team more lee-way.   This show seems to bank on the "cop-drama" as much as "sci-fi" so we'll see if that helps.

 

I just worry it's things we've all seen before.  The "android that is life-like that wants to be human" has been done a ton of times but maybe it'll be different.  The good thing is, the guy who plays Dorian is so far stealing the show, but Urban is still doing great and really feels legit for the role.   I don't expect an amazing show here but a good show that is fun to watch (like Person of Interest is).

What?!?!

The acting was probably the worst part of the movie. But all around, it was a terrible flick, the message was cliche and forced and the plot twists were mindnumbingly awful.

Like I said, I only saw it when it first came out. I could be totally wrong. I'm 19 now, so I was like 14 at the time. I remember it as a good movie though.

It’s not bad so far but not great either. Basically it’s a lot of stuff we’ve seen before but it could get better over the season.

Of course since its set in the future it has to have a location that looks like it came out of Blade Runner. lol

It looks like one of the first fox shows ever in Alien Nation.

This opening theme is hilarious..so 80's ish.

I don't think there could have been a worse comparison made.  That show was cheesy and the production values were awful...and let's not even talk about the writing.  If you watched the first episode of Almost Human and came away with this impression I don't know what is wrong with you.

Just a cop buddy show is my point. Alien Nation was horrible. "your just an alien...wait..we are more alike than we know."

But the partner dymanic is the same. "Your just a robot..wait you are more human than human..we are more alike than we know."

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
