Tv Season Info

"Fringe" producer J.H. Wyman created this sci-fi crime drama set in the year 2048, when John Kennex (Karl Urban), a veteran Los Angeles detective with mental and physical baggage, returns to the force, but struggles to adjust to the mandate that requires human officers to be paired with robots. Fortunately for Kennex's psyche—not to mention his well-being—he's eventually partnered with one called Dorian (Michael Ealy), an older model of android that's capable of expressing emotions, which will make all the difference in the world as they depend on each other to battle terrorists, drug rings and cyber-criminals in all corners of the city. Series regulars include Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook, Michael Irby and Lili Taylor, and John Larroquette guest stars as a brilliant but slightly off-kilter roboticist.

Critic Reviews for Almost Human: Season 1

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (22)

Beyond profundities laced with humor, the action drama from J.J. Abrams, created by Fringe's J.H. Wyman and starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, is a visual feast.

September 6, 2013 | Full Review…

The pilot episode at least, balances that sense of dread with intrigue, humor, and emotion.

November 18, 2013 | Full Review…

The premiere episode of the series otherwise lacks enough imagination to make it stand out from the sci-fi cop movies and TV shows we've seen before.

November 15, 2013 | Full Review…

[It] keeps twisting and turning itself into a series of unwieldy plot knots.

More to the point, though, Almost Human turns out to be engaging, both as a cop tale and a new twist on the buddy dynamic.

November 14, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Lively pilot, with plenty of pop -- but you've seen it all before.

I wanted this to be better. It's fine. But not great.
