Official Trailer | ALMOST HUMAN | FOX BROADCASTING

I am hopeful this can succeed and be something good. It's got the Creator of Fringe / JJ Abrams attached, so you know your getting a certain type of built-in show. Also, you can't go wrong with a cast that includes Karl Urban, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Crook, Michael Ealy, Michael Irby and the awesome Minka Kelly. My only concern is that this is a show that will have to build an audience and FOX is known for pulling the plug when they don't get immediate results in the ratings.

Pilot




Almost Human has a lot of Blade Runner, a good heap of Minority Report, and a little bit of Lethal Weapon going for it. Is that a good thing? Yes and no. Yes, it's kinda cool to look at and it all feels familiar. No, it feels a little too familiar as in there isn't any originality to it. The action sequences weren't all that impressive, even for a TV series. The story itself for the Pilot wasn't any spectacular and the characters themselves weren't all that interesting. With that said, I'm still willing to give this series a good shot because I know that most Pilots rarely deliver the goods because everything may look great on paper, is still a work in progress. I do like the cast though with Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Lily Taylor, Mackenzie Cooke and Minka Kelly. Let's just hope that the writers have something a bit more engaging coming our way in the next few weeks.

Skin




If they populate the world that Almost Human with sex-bots, it will go a long way to driving more eyes to the show. How can you not like seeing insanely hot women walking around in barely-there clothing. Very hot. Episode was slightly better than the previous one. Still needs some time to flesh out all the secondary characters. It's only 2 episodes in, so I'm not expecting to get everyone's back-story, but I would like to see exactly what Minka Kelly's role will be. So far, as the Precinct's dispatcher, she hasn't really done much. The series also needs to start working on the mythology so that there is something deeper and meaningful beyond just the 'Crime of the week' episodes. I'm sure they have that forthcoming....the sooner the better.

Are You Receiving?



Meh. Very generic 'Hostage' episode that we have seen countless times over and over. It wasn't a bad episode, it just wasn't all that interesting. I don't know if it's wise for a new series to go into such familiar territory this soon when you're trying to separate yourself from other shows past and present that are out there.

The Bends



It was great that they gave Mackenzie Crook something to do in this episode. A lot actually. But the "undercover drug buy to catch the drug kingpin" has been done a million times before and done a lot better. Very average episode through no fault of Crook. Still waiting to see what they do with Minka Kelly's character. The way things are playing out, I expect Almost Human to be cancelled within the next few episodes.

Blood Brothers



A killer on trial claims his innocence and there supposedly is someone else out there killing for him who just so happens to look just like him. With the world that this is set in, it painfully obvious that they were clones of him. The episode was somewhat better than last weeks and it had more to do with Minka Kelly finally getting something to do within the show. Still not enough, but it's a start.
