Let me tell you a thing, kids, Almost Human hasn’t been on my dash nearly enough and it’s time to fix this. Sit down and prepare for an education of the best kind.
Almost Human is a TV series that just finished it’s first season on Fox. It takes place in 2048 and it’s about these cute cops who solve incredibly clever and creative crimes. It’s mixed serialized and procedural, so there’s an overarching plot but each episode handles its own little story.
The primary protagonists are those guys pictured above who are standing way too close together. Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) is a sassy romantic with anger issues and a deep distrust of androids and also everyone. Then there’s the DRN designated as Dorian (Michael Ealy). Dorian is an android programmed to be human but he was previously decommissioned in favor of the more toaster-like MX series. The very badass Captain Sandra Maldonado (Lili Taylor) decides that since Kennex and Dorian are both pretty messed up, that they’ll do well together, and the rest is history.
Do you like crime and action? Do you like Sci-fi? Badass lady cops? Shipping that sails itself? Feels? Sassy affectionate dialogue? Parallels? Then sit down and do yourself a favor and watch it.
Fox did something really weird and concerning and aired most of the episodes out of order. So I recommend watching them in this order: 1, 8, 6, 10, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 7, 11, 12, 13. You can read more about that here.
Basically this is an awesome show and it’s very up in the air right now whether it will get renewed since it hasn’t gotten much attention… So please give it a try and tell your friends about it! Talk about it on twitter and here and go to the Fox website to watch the episodes that are up there. You won’t regret it!
