An Almost Human Community
FOX (ended 2014)
Yup, I know, I should get off my high horse and get down on my feet - it’s over. Almost Human is no more. Done. Over. Cancelled. Sayonara.

Back to the French-fries-generation with their flawless complexions, ever good hair, remarkable life experience even though they’re too young to have any… Adieu to the aging guy with the gruff demeanor, the confused mind of a casualty of war and the yearning heart for a soul mate. Goodbye to the man made of wires and chips who was like a 21st century Pinocchio and wanted to be a real boy.

The Almost Human Effect is a fact. Out with one of the best and promising SF-shows in a long time. What’s left for us? Nothing. We have been given a glimpse onto a fantastic meal that was set for us on a fine table - only to be given some bread crumbs and have the door slammed shut in our face.

What now? If Fox has any decency and respect for their viewers, they should wrap it up in a decent way. Make a TV movie to explain the many unanswered aspects of the show and to pay a real tribute to the actors, writers and all those involved. Like Firefly and (another of my favorites) Farscape, a TV movie was made to wrap it up. At least that gave us some kind of closure.

I am so disappointed. Back to the drawing board. Find myself a new interest. Won’t be easy after AH.

Shows that have been wrapped up nicely are fine by me. As long as there IS a decent ending. Don’t get me wrong: shows don’t need to live for ever. I have been an X-Phile from day 1, but that could have been a season or two less. Like Supernatural, it got dragged out too long. However, this is the complete opposite. This is death on the spot even before it’s been given a chance to mature. Homicide. What is that in AH terms? Almost Humocide?

Yeah, that’ll be the new term. Make a great show, promise good stuff, then kill it.

Almost Humocide.

I rest my case.

What a fantastic show, with such great chemistry and tonnes of potential.

Gone, because an exec has head up his rear end.

almost makes you want to stop watching new shows, as they don't seem to last anymore.

crap like agents of shield will get another run, when it should've been drowned after 5 episodes.

HUGE update to the story. I believe the petitions were changed and consolidated, but make sure you guys signed the right one. A nice update from the organizer and a huge mention in The Huffington Post. Just take another peek at my story.

Gutted. Was a brilliant show, us sci-fi fans really get shafted by Fox, shame there's not a sci-fi channel that focuses virtually exclusively on sci-fi TV shows and leaves the likes of Fox to lame crap for the trailer trash dynamic.

That's really bad news... No other show has testicles scanning as inside joke. More than the plots and overall story, i will miss a great pair of actors and characters.

The firefly fans like to go by Browncoats's so what should we AH fans call ourselves to honor the show?

The DRM's?

Sound off people!

PS. If someone could make an MX death GIF and put the FOX logo on it's face that would be awesome!

Your wish is my command. Since I am no longer writing reviews... my last effort in memory of a favorite show.



I am in between clients, so finding and embedding a transparent logo was too much work. But I think this makes the point.

PERFECT!

Exactly as I pictured it.

Get out of my head!

It also strikes me as plain ludicrous that the suits would cancel a show that has J. J. Abrams' name attached to it. Geesh!

Joss Whedon's name has been on many things cancelled.

And prepare for another one with Believe.

And all Bryan Fuller does is produce cancelled shows. Let's hope Hannibal breaks the rule.

Don't think Abrams actually had much to do with it actually. They tend to just stick his name on things these days regardless of how much he's involved.

Bad Robot is his production company. So he has passing input on anything that is produced there. Like Person of Interest and Revolution

Always look for the spunk little creepy naughty robot at the end of a show! That dude (dudette?) is everywhere these days!

But JH Wyman and JJ are close friends, so I am sure they worked on it together at least a little.
