An Almost Human Community
FOX (ended 2014)
If you are as disappointed as I am that Fox pulled a "Firefly" and not only aired Almost Human out of order, but then gave up on it despite decent numbers, take less than TWO minutes and sign the petition.

LINK: SAVE ALMOST HUMAN

There are over 7,600 already signed on and the petition was only birthed earlier today. With the sorry state of Sci-Fi on television right now, Almost Human had a fantastic cast and the potential for serial storytelling that we desperately need. Don't be a MX. Vote with your heart!

@gzeigler3 also added this plea to all the major networks, SyFy included, to pick up Almost Human. The original petition I linked has been rerouted and consolidated into this one. Since FOX gave up on the show it only makes sense to turn our efforts to other networks.

Incidentally, if it was picked up now, we would probably look at a fall shoot and 2015 Spring or Summer airing. Remember the fall window, Karl Urban will be off to film Star Trek 3 and possibly another Riddick and/or DREDD. If someone decides to favor this show - they better do so quickly.

Here is a nice update from the Petition Organizer, Megan Riffey:

  1. Major break!

    Megan Riffey
    Petition Organizer
    I have updated and changed the network information to reflect multiple major networks. I will be starting contact with them tomorrow by reaching out to their public relations.

    Also...we've been featured in the Huffington Post!

    As of Friday 9am EST, sIgnatures are nearing the 8,000 mark. Only 4,500 more are needed.

Leave it to Fox to cancel really good shows like Almost Human, I really hope that Syfy would pick it up and air the series, I think that it was ok just as it was and I would like the series to continue,please continue to air this series ...

I loved this show. It was probably cancelled due to the fact of not enough vulgar humor, or vilgar sexual inuendos, or not enough people having sex, or no lesbian activity or my pick.. ALL THE ABOVE! I am so sick, sick, sick of this crap. A good series and then nothing!

I am really disappointed that Almost Human has not been picked up by another network. This had all the makings of a great show. FOX was stupid not to keep it.

Please please please bring back this show. I thought it was just on a break and was eagerly awaiting the return to learn that it's been canceled.

If you read into some of the stuff I posted since this - The FOX chair decided to renew it - but FOX denied it. He ended up resigning.

We should have this show back and once again a network has no feel for what fans want.

YOu have had a ton of support from the folks here. I've had this up over a month

I didn't actually get around to watching the show, what with lack of time and it being on Fox where some idiot can decide that running episodes out of order is a good move. But I did like what I was hearing, and J.H. Wyman has earned some credit after Fringe. Perhaps this could also develop into an essential viewing, given time.

Ah well, signed the petition for what it's worth. Someone on the production team should've really considered going to Kickstarter (even though it requires quite some effort to set up and offer incentives, as well as getting the entire cast & crew on board with the idea); at the very least they could use an extra evidence of support as a bargaining chip when trying to convince other networks to pick them up.

ALMOST HUMAN is an important series to compete with CONTINUUM for alternative visions of the near future.

I don't know about the rest of you but I'm impressed the petition is at 24,221 Supporters. That's rather impressive! I just hope #KarlUrban and Co gets to find out how much we supported their efforts even if #FOX didn't!

Reading the updates, looks like Netfilx could have some interest. I just don't know how long Ealy and Urban will be available. Some other projects will certainly steal them. And if you remember - there was an article that said Urban was done with TV if this was cancelled.

I cannot wait to see his Bones again. Bring on Trek 3

Totally agree,cannot wait for st 3, and they BETTER get Almost Human back, sick of Fox doing this to all the great shows!

The petition had some love from Netflix I believe.

Maybe, just maybe.
Reply

I know, that saddens me, if Netfilx can get something going on I do hope Urban would reconsider. I would think the support of show by it's fans might mollify his concerns.

As for Trek, I really don't care,... it's #AlmostHuman I want to see more of! Speaking of which it looks like the petition is only about 600 away from completion :)

It appears Karl Urban is dojne with TV. I think our best bet is a movie or TV mini ...but Mr. Urban is going to be tied up with Star Trek 3 after the 1st of the year. I have my ear to the ground, though and I'll write a post if a KS surfaces.

12,032 supporters on the Save Almost Human petition but this is where it needs the biggest push because 2,968 are still NEEDED!

And I've already talked to all of my friends who like SF, I've even introduced AH to 10 people who hadn't seen it before, all of whom liked it enough sign the petition. But if we lose steam now AH will go the way of Angel and Farscape (show's who were canceled despite fan support).

Whew. Deep breath. I know you are right. I am sick of waiting 2 or 3 years for the next big Star Trek or Star Wars movie. Although we have Guardians of the Galaxy coming as well as possibly the Farscape movie soon. BUt we need something on TV too! And I sure as hell don't count the teen angst of The 100.

Almost anything can be canceled with no justification whatsoever. It's getting to the point where nothing surprises me anymore.

Well.. at least Under The Bone returns in June.

No truer words spoken.

I think this show is a lot safer in the hands of someone else. You could really see this coming. Fox does not know how to handle scifi. This series has several seasons in it with growing ratings as it matures. If it could only escape the fox….wait…it did! This is a good thing!

And then they sit there - like with Firefly going: "A movie? Comics? All these DVD Box Set sales??? What did we miss?" We have to make sure we don't blow it, these sci-fi fans are dedicated!!!

And then they do it again.

I would really love for this show to get a second season. It had so much potential and I thought it was really good. It's not like any other crime show (it's not another Law & Order or CSI) or any other sci-fi show out there right now and I really enjoyed it.

I hope the show does get picked up. Only SyFy doesn't really show science fiction any more. They mostly show wrestling, Ghost-time, Scare-that, Bigfoot-those and the weekly schlockfest movie. (Although, Sharknado WAS so bad it was good.)

However, any science fiction the network shows is whatever was leftover from before they changed the name (and focus) of the network and is dying by attrition. Good new science fiction like Caprica (and Blood and Steel (both BSG prequels) didn't stand a chance. And, unfortunately, I don't think Almost Human will either.

I hate that the shows I like keep getting cancelled (especially on Fox) and crap like American Idol has been on for HOW long now?

THe paradigm for staying with shows ha changed, but networks are still slow to embrace it. I am on a panel that comments on FOX programming and every damn week they ak me about American Idol. It must really be doing poorly (in comparison with past numbers)

Networks just don't look at the big picture. If AH caught it's stride, no genre of fans invest in things like DVD sales like Sci-Fi fans.

Well, keep up the good fight. Maybe AH will finally go off the air. My only hope is that Syfy seems to be edging back to science fiction with the recent Ascension mini-series, Childhood's End and a number of new shows upcoming. We'll see.

Star Trek got a 3rd season back in the '60s due to fan letters. And Family Guy and Futurama both were cancelled and picked back up due to fan popularity. (In Family Guy's case, specifically DVD sales.)

There are and one recently. Many shows are given life on another network, or with Veronica MArs and Firefly - they get movies. I have to sit and think about the specifics. Community was one. Chuck. FRINGE got a last 1/2 season. There are many more.

Community & Chuck were both on the bubble when fans took action, to my knowledge. In the case of Chuck fans - they organized a Subway finance petition whereupon they ordered Subway sandwiches on Mondays when the show aired - pretty clever. Family Guy & Futurama are animated shows, so it is relatively easy to pick up where the show left off, sans voice actors, writers, etc.

But in the case of Almost Human, I read somewhere sets were torn down and FOX didn't like outsourcing production from WB or something of that sort. Also the showrunners, JH Wyman and another I forget her name were in public creative disputes so that doesn't help our case. So it sounds like a more complicated hill to climb for us fans. Don't wanna be a bummer, I wanna keep hope alive but I also wanna be pragmatic about it all. I already got my heart broken more than once -- thanks FOX!

No bummer - thank you for the info. I had some contacts with the folks involved in the show and I never heard of anything about other production companies. From my understanding, Bad Robot completely ran production - but I've been wrong before.

This was Wyman's baby and he is good friends with JJ, so I wonder who the woman was who was "confident" (see: balsy) enough to argue with his vision in public. If I had to bet - I'd say it was a FOX exec who kept pushing the procedural shite and the episode order debacle. But that is just a guess.

Sci-Fi will always be a bastard child of TV. The petition urges other networks to look at it. So we can only do what we are doing. The petition is up to over 9.000 in less than 2 days. NOt too shabby. And a nice write up in the Huffington Post. So maybe just hold an ounce of hope!

Thanks for the page, i signed it! But honestly, i don't hold out much hope. I've been down this road, a few times before. I believe there would be a better chance, if it had been on NBC. Because NBC/ Universal/ Comcast or whatever owns Syfy. I don't understand why FOX just doesn't send it to FX? Four to six million viewers, may not be enough for FOX; but would be a hit on FX, even if they lost a mill, with the change.

It is nearing 5000 in under a half a day. This could wind up having a re-birth somewhere or even a movie if we hang with it. I have read stuff all over the interwebs when the cancellation was announced. It has been overwhelming the support it is getting (too little too late?)

Really, SyFy? The channel that doesn't have the budget to spell it's own name correctly? (okay, I borrowed that crack from another site) Maybe can schedule it between wrestling and not finding ghosts shows.

I really liked Almost Human, but rather see it die with dignity, then become another joke on that pretend sci-fi network.

I think it is possible with all these "Limited Series" experiments, we could get something. It is a different era in TV. It may not be FOX, but at this point (pardon the language) - Fuck them. Let some other network air it and reap the benefits from the DVD sales and movie rights
