I am very relieved to inform you that the TV series I have been banging on about for the last few months, Almost Human, is brilliant!!
OK, I may be little bit biased because Karl Urban is the lead but even if he wasn’t, this is the kind of show I like to get excited about and look forward to each week.
The fact that Karl is in it is just a happy bonus!
When stripped down to it’s basics it’s a buddy cop show.
Nothing new there.
However, it is set about 35 years into the future. Not so far that things are unrecognisable and what the show achieves is a sense that this is the kind of future we are heading into. The technology is not so over the top you can’t see it happening.
Karl Urban and Michael Ealy have a great chemistry together and there are some real laugh out loud moments.
If it can make it past the dreaded first season cut, I can see it being as successful as past JJ Abrams/Bad Robot productions like Fringe and Lost.
It has been given a Monday night prime time slot so they obviously have a lot of faith in this show at the moment.
So this is what my Tuesday evenings will look like for a while.
