Science Fiction TV

As of late there has been a real uptick of quality science fiction shows on tv both network and cable. That’s really enjoyable when it comes to finding science fiction and fantasy shows that I enjoy. While the Fantasy shows are far more rare, the Science Fiction shows are more prevalent and are growing in…

Almost Human

Almost Human – Season 1 Review

Almost Human kicked off with a very strong pilot and promises of a truly interesting season. It had elements in place that was sure to make for an interesting season. In many ways, it held up it’s end of the bargain, but at the same time it didn’t. Almost Human took an interesting concept of…

Almost Human – Beholder

Let’s start with the fact that I don’t understand how that virtual reality worked unless it was implanted in his brain. The whole room ended up covered by the simulated golf game. This week we were back to talking about chromes. This time, a chrome was murdered in his apartment. It was written off as…

Niko

Almost Human – “Disrupt”

Rudy is overstepping bounds all over the place as he roots around in Dorian’s processing core for more information about him. While it wasn’t cool that he’d done that, it was interesting that he found that Dorian’s image is unknown. For anyone who doesn’t know how operating systems work, an image is used to create…

Kennex and Maldonado

Almost Human – Perception

The opening sequence was fascinating if not confusing opening. It was beautiful to watch the technology move with the music. The girls didn’t make it through to the end as the one performing the symphony collapsed and died at the same time the other girl in the park did. Of course, Kennex and Dorian are…

Dr. Nigel Vaughn and Dorian

Almost Human – Unbound

I maintain that Kennex does not know how to interact with children. This weeks case of the week had to do with reprogramed robots. In this case, what looked to be an early version of a robot was reprogrammed rather than to work for the police, but to commit crimes. Just when the police thought…

Almost Human – You Are Here

It took two months and a bunch of episodes, but we are finally addressing the issue of Kennex’s betraying ex. Even i it came in the form of Kennex’s group therapy. We didn’t hear any more after that, but it is nice that it was finally acknowledged. It was fascinating seeing just how human unfriendly…

Almost Human – Simon Says

Michael Ealy was born to play Dorian. As he walked around with half charge, watching Dorian’s ticks executed to perfection was a joy. As he strode into the room and punched Paul for leaving the DRNs last to charge. The lack of charge makes him a bit emotional, much like a tired person, ready to…

Almost Human – Arrhythmia

It was eerie seeing Leonard Lee blaze into the hospital shouting about his own impending death. When he dropped dead just as he claimed he would it felt like justification for his panic. We learned that he had a black market biometric heart. Unsurprisingly, his lease on life was up when his installer didn’t renew…

Almost Human – Blood Brothers

Can I say that it was hilarious seeing the MX as a life sized Ken doll. It was interesting. kennex’s reaction to all of them was even more hilarious. It led to a nice moment between Kennex and Dorian where we learned he wasn’t a Ken doll and extremely well endowed. The interplay between the…

Almost Human – The Bends

This week Kennex and Dorian investigate what seems like a dirty cop, but our glimpse of his interaction with the dealers didn’t seem right. Turns out he was a cop who went against orders and went undercover to ascertain answers. Too bad, it got him killed, but in honor of his wife left behind Kennex…

Almost Human – Skin

Kennex’s inability to relate to kids was hilarious. His idea to do a cool trick like Dorian by stabbing himself in his synthetic leg, left the little girl he was trying to impress screaming. Dorian laid out everything Kennex has issues with, kids and cats being two of them. Despite his shoddy connection with the…

Almost Human – Pilot

Aside from the initial comparison to I,Robot, (you know, a cop who has a cybernetic part and doesn’t trust robots) Almost human is a fun romp into a world changed forever by their technological advances. It is a world that requires every cop to have an MX (android partner). John Kennex lost his leg and…
