Future Man

Critics Consensus

Future Man's nostalgia-driven premise is elevated by the cast's compelling chemistry and a sense of humor just dumb enough to lighten the sci-fi load.

Critic Reviews for Future Man Season 1

Sometimes, I can laugh just looking at Eliza Coupe's face. The former star of "Happy Endings," originally from New Hampshire, seems to have wryness and absurdity built into her physiognomy.

Nov 21, 2017 | Full Review…

If you're one to be won over by knowingly nostalgic nods livened up by vulgarities and violence - not to mention the always addictive presence of Coupe - this Hulu series is likely a fine, fun distraction for the present.

Everything feels meticulously, lovingly plotted by the show's creators, but as it's happening it leads to numerous surprises and big laughs. Future Man is what happens when giddy, geeky and inspired storytelling is allowed to go full throttle.

Nov 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Too much of this is standard-issue Rogen/Goldberg, with violence, raw language and plotting that's occasionally so lazy it hardly rises to the level of plot: more like a fast dash through chase scenes, fight scenes and comic relief scenes.

Emboldened to look ahead, I'm predicting a good time for all.

The chemistry between the main cast is apparent in their comedic timing and the warmth of their relationships. By season's end, Josh, Tiger, and Wolf come together as a team, with each character feeling human and fully-formed.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Future Man's present is strong enough that it deserves to live on-and, if nothing else, there's at least one man in it with an amazing comic future ahead of him.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Maybe Future Man doesn't recreate the actual gaming experience so well. But the part about being a fan and surrounding yourselves with other people who get your love, share it and appreciate it? That's on the money.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

I wasn't exactly thrilled at the prospect of 13 episodes of dick-and-cum jokes. But rest assured: The show gets better, but without ever actually maturing.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It is an entertainment in which the viewer has to be carried away by the paths of well-developed hooliganism. Opossums included. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Future Man, with its hit or miss quality, leans into some well-worn tropes while also bucking some others quite brilliantly.

Oct 8, 2017 | Rating: 7.6/10 | Full Review…

Future Man doesn't possess the emotional center of Chuck, but what it lacks in tenderness it recoups with heaps and heaps of nostalgia.

    The show is crazy, literally. If you thought the the premise of Time Travel was insane, think again. This is has the fun and goofy quirks you want from a good ole show about time travel, meanwhile it goes the unexpected and down right ridiculous route or leaning into its crazy premise. I loved the show, and falling in love but also hating the characters at moments is what makes this show a star.

    So much better than I expected it to be. You really can feel the actual chemistry between the Cast members when they play. Sometimes it is actually recognisable that Seth Rogen is producing because of the humor. The Camera Department does a really good job. And every Department is doing a good job if you consider that they most likely didn't had much budget.

    Awesome definitely made for the Brit sense of humour I Love it .. it's not really for kids I wouldn't recommend younger than 16 year olds really. I wouldn't let my kids at a young age watch this at all it's amid at older late teens and adults with a sense of humour But the humour is definitely a very British one .. crude funny silly and entertaining Unless your a prude . And get offended easy by the most ridiculous tiny things . Which lets be honest is now how everyone is these days . I'm 38 so don't get offended by silly stuff that is minor . No kids allowed only older people.. it's brilliant definitely taken my mind off of COVID-19 we need something uplifting and funny at the moment positive rather than doom and gloom that's literally everywhere atm . But I guess the offended live a life of doom an gloom and over analysing everything,so will most definitely be offended by this show . It's just silly entertaining and funny With a touch of crude Sex violence but it's all done in a silly way ..Definitely worth a watch if your a person who is always smiling and happy and laughing.. your like the show if your that type of person ADULTS ONLY NOT for KIdS

    Super funny, great acting, jokes constantly rolling. I love the dark comedy and how much of a joke josh is. Also, can we please acknowledge Josh Hutchinson's place as an acting legend. I mean he was lead in Bridge to Terabithia. I will never understand why he is not an A list actor, much the same with Shia Labouf. The industry effed these two brilliant child stars over yet give fame and status to terrible actors like Matthew mcconaughey.

    For me this show was a perfect blend of sci-fi, adventure, emotion, and comedy derived from rralistic reactions to outrageous scenarios. It never tried to be more than it was, and it was a beautiful adventure of self discovery, with characters we fell in love with as we watched them develop.

    One of the funniest tv shows that I have watched in a while

    Found this show by accident and I just couldn't stop watching. I am not normally a fan of comedies, but this one is so well written and funny. It keeps me coming back to see what they will do next. I love it!

    Its a Familiar Time travel series well scripted with humors. Its first episode itself gives us what's its gonna be. Addiction, Humor, Bonding are three words for this series. Josh, Tiger and Wolf's Journey is just began. Verdict-4.75/5
