It's too early to tell where this series is going, but I'm not impressed. [Full Review in Spanish]

It was, at its core, a police procedural but it was heightened by the high-quality special effects, the heavy sci-fi, and the chemistry between the two leads.

Almost Human is more than just a name, but an overarching theme.

Pairing cops with clashing personalities isn't a new thing. It's been done in every iteration, it seems, on stage as well as the big and small screen. Enter Almost Human, which puts an interesting - and explosive - spin on the popular trope.

At its core, Almost Human boils down to a show about a mismatched pair of cops - in this case, Michael Ealy (who plays the android) and Karl Urban (who plays the android-hating human) - and the truth is, their chemistry is fantastic.

What's most noteworthy... is how comfortably it fits alongside a certain type of forward-looking big screen effort both Abrams and others have been churning out lately.

If every episode is as fun and stylish as tonight's installment, then I think we'll be just fine!
November 25, 2013
Peppered with solid performances, smart writing, and intriguing world-building elements, Almost Human is sure to be more than just an entertaining show, and is a welcome addition to the impressive resumes of its creators.

The pilot episode makes for a solid, albeit generic, first installment anchored by a charming, odd-couple pairing that prevents the show from taking a nosedive into boresville.

If Kennex is going to dominate with Dorian providing only support, the series might not sustain interest. If Dorian becomes an equal character, the prospects improve.
November 18, 2013
The show has some blind spots but Ealy and Urban lift Almost Human out of mediocrity and elevate it to solid popcorn entertainment.

November 18, 2013
Almost Human is seemingly aspiring to be more than the entertaining and visually pleasing sci-fi procedural that it already is, and right now, it seems like it will meet those aspirations.
November 18, 2013
Almost Human is a classic police drama infused with beloved science-fiction tropes.

It captures your imagination for a show that could explore our romance with technology, for better and worse, and how technology is simultaneously expanding and diminishing our humanity.

Right now, I'd say it's mostly OK.

[It] is well made with strong leads and several intriguing hooks. Almost Human is almost there.

Somebody at Fox short-circuited.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
November 18, 2013
The show is derivative but passionate, verging on corny. It means what it's telling us and showing us, and there's a sense of curiosity and commitment in every frame.
November 18, 2013
If the premise intrigues you, watch or rewatch Blade Runner instead, and offer Almost Human the all-too-human body swerve.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
November 18, 2013
The mystery and conspiracy feel like the Mad Libs versions of previous cop-show mysteries and conspiracies.
