Show Summary

The year is 2048, and the streets are as mean as ever. Fortunately, the police have a new tool in their arsenal- Synthetics, robots who are tasked with assuring the safety of the humans who created them. But not everyone is pleased with the changes. Detective John Kennex, who has been wounded in action, returns to the force and learns that his new partner is a Synthetic named Dorian. Dorian's programming is very different than that of the normal Synthetic, with a capability to experience emotions making him seem almost human, but John still mistrusts the machine at his side. Can they work together as a team?

    Yet again the UK audiences get into a fantastic show like almost human..... And you pull it???

    Really I'm loosing all sense in watching anything now from the US as we just get into the the show and all of a sudden it disappears???!!!??? Really??? Give it a couple of seasons before it disappears.... Us Brits appreciate a thinking interesting show, and you've lost so many fans pulling shows before they are just getting going.... We are hear across the pond give us half a chance with the stuff you send over.... We're more loyal then the obvious yank!!!moreless

    What a ridiculous decision to cancel this show, I just can't understand it. Finally we got to see good, clean cyberpunk. No gods, no magic, just sci-fi with beautiful sets, much attention to detail and a believable world full of technical improvements and problems that humanity might face soon. It was stunning visually, cleverly written, gripping. I liked all the small touches like the eagle view of city traffic with a rolling ring-like automobile or synthetic infosheets that quickly read your fingerprints for authorisation. This was a well crafted world that introduced interesting concepts in a casual, unpretentious fashion, like sex bots or genetically engineered offspring, without dwelling unnecessarily on the moral questions. Nothing felt forced, the show had a very true feel to it and didn't treat viewers like idiots. The atmosphere reminded me of the Deus Ex game series and the True Skin sci-fi short film by Stephan Zlotescu. The humor was good, so was the music. Scripts well written - action kept moving at a fast pace and I was often surprised by the story. A more complex main protagonist and female lead would have made this show perfect, but now we will never know. Feels like Dark Angel and Firefly all over again. For shame.moreless

    Why o why do FOX always cancel the good shows?! I really liked it. It was well made, had good actors and great scripts. Would have love to see at least a couple of more seasons.

    I dont understand why the really good science fiction shows keep getting canceled. Maybe its a diffirence betwice european taste and american taste in shows. But wow ... i have seen so many great shows get canceled. Sure some are abit slow starting, and right when it get extremely exciting BAAAM canceled .

    Its like they dont take into account what rest of the world think of the shows, and only watch . views rates. I did notice its often the same two TV channels that cancels shows, i wonder why thye keep trying starting new up of this type if they always cancel em anyway.



    I am however tied of those silly other shows that survive, they are often just the same crap over and over again. And i really dislike many reality shows aswell. Watching other humans getting humiliated are not something i find fun.



    Almost Human, Flashforward , Moonlight, Bionic Woman, Stargate Universe, V (2009), just out of top of my head i loved to death and all got canceled. Seems to be normal for science fiction shows of my taste.moreless
