An Almost Human Community
FOX (ended 2014)
Well isn't this just a nice howdy-do?! As, what I assume is, a gesture of gratitude toward all the still smarting fans of Almost Human ...FOX has decided to release a retrospective on the doomed Sci-Fi cop drama.

While it is nice to see FOX appreciated how many fans Almost Human gained over it's brief half season, I cannot help but think, "If you thought the show was good enough to release a featurette of all it's best moments, why in Rudy's name would you not see the worth of a second season?"

As much as I loved seeing the boy's back in the car, I still feel like this is just another kick in the fellas after FOX treated the freshman show like rented mule. Almost Human was building a serial mythology, setting in place the foundation for what I am sure would have been a fantastic payoff next season. Not only was production repeatedly interfered with, but episodes were aired out of order for no discernible reason. Unless you want to count purposely screwing up the continuity of character development as a reason.

There has been some speculation that FOX Chairman, Kevin Reilly, actually stepped down due to having the renewal of Almost Human rejected. Regardless, the decision was short-sided and unjust - as ratings were at worst mediocre with a growing and dedicated fan base.

I hope I can watch this again and some point and not feel like the knife is being twisted even further. If you want to take a peek at my review of what was the series finale give a click HERE or if you want to see some of the best car ride moments I threw together at mid season, you can find that HERE.

You guys were wonderfully supportive in my on-the-job training in covering the show and I will truly miss not doing it again next season!

Here is what The Benedict Arnold FOX network prepared for us:


Currently the Almost Human Petition has over 26.000 signitures.

Still holding out hope someone picks the show up. But these guys are going to get more work in a hurry.

Thank you for the kind words! I will miss reviewing the show

Christ, Fox couldn't even be bothered to give the retrospective video decent music! - they just continue to mishandle the show, even after they killed it off

Not to mention they didn't bother to give us the best clips. A few goodies, but every shootout wasn't necessary. They didn't understand what made it good - Kennex/Dorian interaction

They could of gone a few ways
*playing up the Blade Runner comparisons and used some synth music like this:



or keep the comparison but update the style and make it darker :


or this would probably be a good fit for the futuristic aspects and action scenes:


and finally, just for a supercut of all the Minka Kelly scenes:

Yeah. They could just play static during Minka Kelly scenes. I don't hear anything anyway (which in regard to your choice for her music - is a blessing).
