Science fiction and television should, technically speaking, be in perfect harmony. Science fiction deals with what-if scenarios, which have played out beautifully in such classic pulp science magazine as Galaxy, Astounding Science Fiction and Fantasy & Science Fiction. Television, on the other hand, thrives when it exploits serial storytelling, and is perfect for the anthology series.
Fox has cancelled Almost Human. While it's not massively surprising, it's most definitely disappointing, as the futuristic cop drama was one of the networks' most promising and entertaining series. Created by J.H Wyman, with J.J. Abrams among the executive producers, Almost Human starred Karl Urban and Michael Ealy as a human and lifelike robot partnered together as detectives in the year 2048.
After a couple weeks of hiatus, Almost Human returns tonight with "Unbound" and with it comes a guest appearance by John Larroquette, who's featured in one of the clips Fox released to tease the episode. As you'll see in the first clip, Laroquette was Dorian's creator and it's evident from his emotional reaction to seeing Dorian this model meant a great deal to the genius roboticist.
Spoiler alert if you aren’t caught up on Almost Human through last night’s episode (“Simon Says”)! “Oh my God, they blew up Gaeta!” said every Battlestar Galactica fan who watched last night’s episode of Almost Human. But let's talk about the preview for next Monday's 'You Are Here."
With each new year comes a new set of TV shows to love or loathe. Between cable, network television and Netflix, which falls into its own budding small screen category, 2013 offered us some spectacular TV entertainment. Our favorite new TV shows of 2013 includes robots, clones, informants, politicians and more.
Fox’s promising sci-fi drama Almost Human got a late start this fall, so it makes sense that it should be one of the remaining series to air a new episode this week, while many of the other fall TV comedies and dramas on network television have already gone on break. However, last night’s episode was the last new ep we’ll see of Almost Human until January. The preview for “Arrhythmia” teases what’s ahead, including the arrival of recurring guest star John Larroquette.
Spoilers from tonight's Almost Human ahead! One of the things I’m really enjoying about Almost Human — besides the humor — is the way the futuristic backdrop is used in just about every layer. It’s not only there to provide an explanation for how a humanoid robot like Dorian can exist, or simply to dress up the scenery...
Following up on a two-night premiere, Almost Human will settle into its usual Monday night timeslot starting next week. The above preview shows us a look at Episode 3, “Are You Receiving?,” which will have Kennex and Dorian dealing with a hostage situation. Also, the ratings are in for last night, and while Monday’s broadcast didn’t do quite as well as Sunday’s, the series still performed solidly.
Fox began their two-night Almost Human premiere event last night, which means Night 2 is tonight! And judging by the preview for “Skin,” it looks like we’ll get a better sense of how this series will operate beyond the big mystery organization arc, as it appears Kennex and Dorian have a new case to investigate. And it’s a sexy one. Or a gross one. Sexbots certainly fall into the sexy category, by sci-fi standards anyway.
Fox took a chance on a mystery series with a historical and supernatural twist in Sleepy Hollow and it paid off. If the current trends of television are any indication, the classic police procedural format demands a little something extra. For Sleepy Hollow, it's Ichabod Crane. In the case of Almost Human, it comes in the form of a futuristic setting and a human-robot partnership, with Karl Urban representing the human side of the story and Michael Ealy serving as the robot half.
Fox may be making us wait a couple weeks longer than planned for the premiere of J.H. Wyman and J.J. Abrams new series Almost Human, but they haven’t been stingy on the promotional content. Earlier this week we shared an 8-minute preview of the futuristic cop drama, though we noted at the time that the video didn’t start at the beginning.
Originally, Fox had Almost Human lined up to premiere next week, but the premiere date has been pushed back a couple of weeks, which makes the above video feel like a consolation prize — but a good one. Fox has released eight minutes of the futuristic drama, introducing us to Karl Urban’s John Kennex, a cop who survived one of the city’s most catastrophic attacks and is returning to duty where he’ll be partnered with a robot.
The good news is, Fox has released a new preview for their upcoming futuristic robot drama Almost Human. The bad news is, we have to wait a couple weeks longer than expected for the series to premiere, as the debut date has been pushed back from Monday, November 4 to Sunday, November 17, when it'll air the first of two episodes that week, with the second scheduled for Monday night during the show's usual time-slot
With so many new series about to be unloaded on us as the fall season looms ever closer, trying to figure out which ones we're most excited about was no easy task. But there are some comedies and dramas that really are brimming with potential this fall, thanks to great premises and in some cases, some really excellent talent involved. Whether or not these shows actually live up to that potential remains to be seen, and we'll find out in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, here's our list of shows we're especially excited about, listed in no particular order.
September is upon us, and with it comes the return of our favorite TV shows, as well as the premieres of many of the new series on deck to debut on network and cable TV. From the early starters, including Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy and The Legend of Korra, to the October arrivals, including Grimm, American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead and everything in between, we have plenty to look forward to this fall!
