Trailer




About The Show

rom Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams (“Fringe,” “Lost,” “Revolution,” “Person of Interest,” the “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible” franchises) and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman (“Fringe,” “The Mexican”), comes ALMOST HUMAN. Starring Karl Urban ( the “Star Trek” and “The Lord of the Rings” franchises”) and Golden Globe Award nominee Michael Ealy (“Sleeper Cell,” “Common Law”), the new series is an action-packed police procedural set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

The year is 2048. Meet Detective JOHN KENNEX (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can't remember much – except that his partner was killed, he lost one of his legs and he is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage.

Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the “psychological rejection of his synthetic body part,” John returns to work at the behest of longtime ally Captain SANDRA MALDONADO (Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor, “Six Feet Under,” “Ransom”). By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician RUDY LOM (Mackenzie Crook, “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise) introduces John to DORIAN (Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these “flaws” that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian's understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them.

As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, including the sharp and insightful human intelligence analyst Detective VALERIE STAHL (Minka Kelly, “Friday Night Lights,” “(500) Days of Summer”) and the distrustful Detective RICHARD PAUL (Michael Irby, “Law Abiding Citizen,” “The Unit”), who does not welcome John back with open arms.

ALMOST HUMAN will follow the week-to-week missions of John and Dorian, as they fight crime across this futuristic landscape, while the mysteries surrounding John's attack and the larger mythology of this new world unfold.

ALMOST HUMAN is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc., in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series was created by J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Wyman and Bryan Burk. Kathy Lingg (“Person of Interest,” “Revolution,” “Fringe”) and Reid Shane (“Fringe”) are co-executive producers. Brad Anderson (“Fringe,” “The Killing”) directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot.

Hesitant how this will turn out but can't fault the budget. Trailer got me somewhat excited in its potential.

Yeah I'm going to give it a shot purely because of Karl Urban. The tone/look of one of the trailers I saw reminded me of Fringe, which is a given with the producers, so hopefully I'll like it.

Sounds like the plot of a Deus Ex game.

Not necessarily a bad thing mind.

I am Robot meets Human Revolution.

Sounds like it could be good although it may stray a little too close to cliché with the cop hating robots who will no doubt be saved many times by the robots he hates...

That is a great thing to say if you want to be a poster quote.

Decent start, hopefully the budget level will continue for the rest of the series. Liked the main 2 cast members, too early to judge the rest. Minka still looking fine.

Thought it was pretty awful, but I am willing to give it a second chance to see if it was just pilot blues

From GAFs TV insider -

Sadly, I learned last night that Fox passed on Almost Human's back 9. Apparently, they're keeping the door open for season 2 depending on how is does going forward, but...


Not sounding good. Not being helped by a lack of serialised story and episodes being aired out of order. Various other production issues as well.

I'll not be surprised if it gets canned.

Good return and very good that they've opened up the world with The Wall and a big villain with his 500 robots. Also brought us this:-
