Almost Human

They have been promoting the hell out of this show for months on NFL, but it always looked so stupid to me since they kept showing the same 2 scenes over and over.

But 2 episodes in, and I am surprised at how decent the show is. Maybe standards have fallen since I rarely start watching more than 1 new show a year now it seems. But it seems pretty solid. Interesting lead characters, great soundtrack, cool ideas for the 'future' (and some bad ones), even funny sometimes

There are the typical tropes you have to deal with, it being a network TV show, but overall I will definitely be watching each episode as it comes out. I haven't done that with a new network show for a long time.

They did the second ep on Tuesday, it was pretty good and some good jokes that I didn't expect on network TV

I just hope it doesn't turn into a procedural crime drama...

The whole show is filmed in Vancouver. JJ Abrams loves shooting his TV shows here.

Anyway, here's a neat link of how Vancouver might look in 30 years, care of Almost Human's FX department.

As for the show, I like it so far. While it is, yes, just another cop show when all is said and done, I do enjoy the futuristic angle... which is probably one reason why I like Continuum. I just hope it's more Fringe than Alcatraz, though.

Premiere was last Sunday, second ep was Monday, and it goes to a regular Monday run now. Quite enjoyed it. Part buddy-cop show, hints of fish-out-of-water... good characters all around so far. They've done a relatively believable future, too, not WAY out there like so many others.

Beginning of the episode was hilarious!

Spoiler!


Hopefully the ratings start to go up, would rather watch this instead of that Marvel show.

Do any crime drama shows have a storyline? Every episode is usually about solving a case, eventually leading up to a case that involves the main characters past. In this case it will probably be about how John's girlfriend got involved with the Syndicate.

Even a show like Person of Interest didn't have much of a proper storyline to begin with. It takes a few episodes to properly establish characters, backgrounds, etc., before a good story arc can begin fleshing itself out. And look at POI now; while it's ultimately yet another procedural crime drama with a twist, it's still one of the best shows on TV right now. Give it some time.

Surprised me when they actually used bitcoins as an "untraceable" payment in episode 6.

Good episode tonight, Minka should be involved in every episode! If this show gets cancelled like The Sarah Connor Chronicles or Firefly I'm going to be pissed!

It's most likely going to be cancelled. It's not getting ratings high enough to justify the expensive production apparently

+1, it's really good... nothing earth-shattering on the TV landscape compared to things like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, etc., but still a cut above your average futuristic buddy-cop drama, largely because of really well-done and well-acted characters (and mmmmmmmminka!)
