Description

In this action-packed show set in 2048, a worse-for-wear cop teams up with a second-hand synthetic android to fight a strain of urban crime that’s evolved in ever more frightening ways. Detective John Kennex survived a catastrophic attack on the city’s police department that cost him nearly everything. Returning over a year later, he finds the transition difficult. Not only does he suffer guilt for the lethal ambush, but department policy now requires that every cop be paired with a highly evolved human-like android partner. Rejecting policy, Kennex reinstates an outdated Dorian android — whose somewhat dysfunctional platform is based on a “Synthetic Soul” program, allowing it to have emotional responses. It’s this flawed humanity, however, that connects Dorian and John. And together, they set out to keep the city safe, uncover the criminal conspiracy that threatens to destroy their world… and find their common humanity.

    have watched the pilot and i wouldn't say I'm addicted but i found it to be very enjoyable, good actors keep a sometimes dodgy script alive. the show creates a believable blade runner esque world which really works
  • Almost Human -- a brilliant pilot episode..

    I watched the first few episodes on a flight - it was very entertaining. Almost addictive.
  • Deeply disappointing

    How I looked forward to this, and it started pretty well. BUT, it became a cliched mess, really. The dialogue at the end of the pilot was poor in the extreme, as characters fell into ‘roles’ they were expected to perform. The transformation of the attitudes of Karl Urban’s character was the stuff of comic books of 9 year olds. Such a shame. Lots of it was good, but it failed,

    I started watching with an open mind, but after the first 20 minutes the cliches were still coming thick and fast, and I couldn’t take it anymore so I stopped watching. It might have transformed into a seminal work of Televisual Art seconds later (the same way Fringe did halfway thru season Two perhaps), but the way it was heading I really doubt that. As an introduction and teaser for the rest of the series, this utterly failed to grab me, let alone keep me for more than 20 mins. It’s safe, reliable, comfy watching.

    I loved this series but sadly FOX have cancelled it even though it was doing ok ratings wise. It's a great show well worth your money. By the same people that did Fringe.
