An Almost Human Community
FOX (ended 2014)

Gee, do you think Fox really wants its upcoming sci-fi drama Almost Human to be a hit? I'm pretty sure the show's title and premiere date (November 17) is printed on the baseballs being used in the World Series, because Fox can't promote the show enough during its broadcasts. 

Enough of the limited-info commercials though, what's the show REALLY like? Well, for all of you out there with access to online-streaming site Hulu (read: sorry, non-U.S. residents!), you can now watch the first almost-eight minutes of the pilot online. The extended clip will introduce you to John Kennex (Karl Urban) as he returns to duty as a flesh-and-blood future cop who doesn't take kindly to being teamed up with a standard-issue robot cop partner. Ready, set... WATCH!

QUESTIONS:

– How about that sweet-looking future created by showrunner J.H. Wyman (Fringe) and producer J.J. Abrams?

– Will John Kennex ever NOT be grumpy?

– Would you go speeding down the freeway in a glorified tire? 

– Does the name J.J. Abrams still mean anything to you?

– Will you marry me, Minka Kelly?

As I am in SciFi and in human relations, I certainly will try it. I do not have grande hopes of enourmweously intelligent stories, but good acting, sgood stories and some kind of arc will do fine.

If I got a penny for every time I saw Karl Urban smile, it would take a few million years before I get to a dollar.

I'm giving this show a try - John Kennex, Michael Ealy and Minka Kelly. It will share my Mondays with Sleepy Hollow.

Even though I've read reviews that the pilot isn't outstanding, I have high hopes. With Wyman in charge I have a feeling he'll building everything up slowly but surely. Season one may drag, but season 2 will be special if it makes it that far.

Based off of these few minutes, it seems average but I feel potential. I trust Wyman. Anyone feel a Fringe homage with that butterfly?

I'm so looking forward to this but i'm also worried that it might get axed before anything happens because not too many people are into sci-fi shows.

I don't know how many remember Mann and Machine but I enjoyed that show with a hot robot trying to be as human as she could be. Won't go into the hotness of the robot here, tho I have no problem with other guys that do but I do hope that if this is similar in story that the style is gritty and grim at times. Maybe if the robot ends up more human that real people while the people are out to slaughter each other being less than human. I am just not a rainbows and unicorn kind of happy guy. Why I loved BSG so much more than BSG80's.

It's already been said a few million times before, and a picture is worth a thousand words, so...

If the question is really "Will John Kennex/Eomer/Bones ever NOT be grumpy?", the answer is "No/No/No".

Tim??

"Does the name J.J. Abrams still mean anything to you?"

Come again? Wasn't Fringe enough? Wasn't that long ago.

I think i more excited to see who will turn up to be "more human". The grumpy guy (who from the trailer its revealed he has a prosthetic leg) and an android who was designed to be as human as possible...i am rooting for the android. From the trailer he seems like he is in touch with his sensitive bone.
8 mins only and i think i like the future (whenever) this show is supposed set on.
J.J Abrams, Yes..

I'm still not sure about the concept of this show (robots behaving like humans with emotion etc. is a premise that I can't quite wrap my brain around, even though I know that most TV shows and movies require some suspension of belief), but I do really like the clip shown. It has a very movie-like feel to it and the actors seem great. I also like that it isn't entirely futuristic (ie the presence of cars) which allows the series to feel that much more real. Definitely intrigued!

Okay, so here are my initial thoughts on those five minutes:
– Most important: I don't know at which year in the future the show takes place, but I'm really glad people still listen to Depeche Mode then.
– I wonder if the Android has emotions (and if that's what makes him crazy).
– I think I'd rather have a Hoverboard than a glorified tire.
– Yes, that name still means something to me...

-The emotions part
I think what the "tech-doc" said more or less...."the android" have unexpected emotional responses...considered crazy coz some of his siblings (the DRN series) had difficulties dealing with their emotive regulation.
