More of FOX’s Upcoming ‘Almost Human’

As the summer drags on and we slowly melt to death (oh, that’s just me? okay then), the networks are kind enough to give us little pieces here and there of their upcoming new shows. One such show is Fox’s Almost Human.

While the trailer is nice, FOX has released a ‘behind the scenes’ video which gives us a better look at the show and it’s characters.

Starring Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Minka Kelly, and Lili Taylor, Almost Human is a show set as producer JJ Abrams says “in the near future.” So we aren’t quite to Star Trek level tech, but we’ve made huge advances from modern times. Before we can even address the whole ‘synthetic’ thing it’s got going, I’m stuck on this picture.

Almost Human FOX

How is the rookie cop standing at the side of the crime scene going to get the okay from the grizzled vet, who’s two years away from retirement, to let the distraught best friend into the crime scene to identify the woman murdered by a carjacker? Can you lift up a hologram? Can you? Of all the stupid things to get hung up on, I’ve chosen this one.

Moving on… Almost Human is pretty much a mix of RoboCop, iRobot, and Inspector Gadget. The first time Karl Urban tells his leg to make him taller, I’m going to start a petition that it never be canceled, ever. I do actually really like the aspect of the man who is reluctant to accept ‘synthetics’ in the first place and now he is part synthetic. As long as they are able to keep that ‘ying-yang-‘ relationship going between John Kennex (Urban) and Dorian (Ealey) fresh, then Almost Human should have a pretty good run. Only time will tell if they are able to pull that off though.

Almost Human will premiere on Monday, November 4th at 8pm.

    1. I believe that she is referring to the classic cop show trope in which some young cop will lift up the tape to let a loved one through at the behest, or chagrin, of the older detective. It’s not in reference to the characters in the pic, but to the Hologram replacing the tape.

      1. Yes, that’s exactly it. In almost every cop show/movie/game/whatever there’s at least once instance of a the young rookie standing guard when someone comes running up to the police tape wanting access.
        The hologram just isn’t going to give that same feeling as the actual lifting of the tape does.
        Like I said, it was completely ridiculous to fixate on that one little part but it’s stuck in my craw now.
