Hey TV.com. Almost Human jumped up to a 2.0. That is great news. How about some coverage?? I have volunteered twice. I love the show. And God knows you have enough examples of my writing. It would be a pleasure. If they can hold North of a 2.0, this show will survive.

You don't have to ask for permission to cover it. Unless you want to get payed for it or a job at TV.com? Otherwise, you can just start posting reviews in the Almost Human community. I'm sure TV.com would vote up and post the reviews on the main page. There are several shows getting reviewed that way (by fans) and the reviews get promoted to the TV.com home page. :-)

Thanks for the info! I did not know that. It would be nice to see something on the main page to draw us fans in though. But I shall begin on You Were Here and pick it back up when it returns!

Almost Worried

For me, the most discouraging thing about "Almost Human" is that it sounds too procedural. However, Fringe masqueraded as a sci-fi procedural for the majority of it's run and I have to agree, the pilot in fact the whole first season (except for the last 20 seconds) wasn't extraordinary television. I live in Australia and our TV scheduling sucks and Fringe bounced around time-slots and eventually even jumped networks, only to be completely pulled. I didn't start watching Fringe in real time (when I say real time, I mean I had to resort to downloading it) up until S4 and the only reason I gave it a shot was because one of my friends wouldn't shut up about it. "If you like Lost, you will LOVE Fringe." she kept insisting. She wouldn't tell me anything about it, just that I "had to" watch it. So after Lost ended, with her words still echoing, I thought ok I might as well give this Fringe-thing a go. All I knew about Fringe at the time, thanks to some very bad advertising, is that it was from J.J. and that every blurb made it sound an x-files rip off with an unknown female lead and the other guy from "Dawsons Creek". I must admit, I had my doubts and it took me a looong time to start watching it.
So, during the s3 hiatus, I got the first 3 seasons on DVD and marathoned my way through it. I enjoyed it right away because I'm a sucker for sci-fi but I didn't fall completely head over heels bananas for it until S2's "Jacksonville". After that episode the show just went from "entertaining" to a life-changing awe-inspiring experience that felt like a roller-coaster ride all the way until the Season 3 finale. I wasn't just hooked, I was officially in love with Fringe. Deep, deep love! If I could've I would've and still would totally get married to Fringe! Yes, after a shaky start to Season 4 with a plot twist that I had many issues with, Fringe remains to be my favourite TV series and I've watched every episode countless times.
I don't know if Fringe would've had such an impact, if I had watched it in real time. With all of the breaks and schedule changes, it probably wouldn't because those darn breaks really take away that momentum. I probably would've given up on Fringe after the first 5-6 episodes. But man, I am so glad I got the chance to experience it the way that I did: 3 seasons of uninterrupted Fringe-bingeing filled with mind-blowing revelations and unprecedented wow moments that completely changed my life! And by "changed my life" I mean, I became a straight-up Fringe addict and those characters are forever tattooed on my heart. Fringe: I love you!
I know that Almost Human won't reach the epic heights that Fringe did and I am almost worried (that's the name of my new show, so stayed tuned) that I'll totally hate it. It sounds like its missing a lot of heart and character and even though I'm a sucker for sci-fi, shows win me over with their characters and the overall mythology and story. Based on the trailers and early reviews I just don't have a lot of hope in Almost Human. Of course that's exactly how I felt about Fringe before I watched it, so who knows? Maybe I'll wait and if Almost Human is still on in 2016, I'll marathon my way through the first 3 seasons and see what I think! ;)
The truth is, I'll watch the pilot as soon as it airs (actually about 10 minutes after it airs counting download time) and I will give this show a chance because I like Wyman and J.J's daddy issues but I'm going into it with a unhealthy amount of fear and scepticism. That's just how I roll! ;-)

I feel you, I couldn't stand Fringe's nightmare scheduling and I resorted to watching the show a season at a time until Season 4 and they almost lost me with the lack of faith Fox showed in it but I just loved it even though I was afraid they wouldn't end it properly. I'm real glad I stayed with it because I wouldn't have been happy if I heard about the end from someone before watching it. I watch all Fox shows with that same sense of fear you do because of their history.

First of all, I have to say cudos and thank you for reading my Novella-length comment! I didn't think anyone would. So, thank you. :-)
I really hope that Wyman doesn't put up with too much Fox BS because these type of shows really need a strong fan base and you can't have that without momentum. Proper scheduling can make or break a show and since they've already delayed the pilot I am scratching my head as to what exactly goes on with that network. I'll give the show a chance for sure but if they start abusing it like they did with Fringe, I'll be super pissed and I'll probably just watch a season at a time since my viewership doesn't count towards the ratings. It's early days so I hope it does well. One thing Fringe taught me is to always have hope. :-)
