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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

    This is the adventure of a lifetime. It's better than "Back to the Future." It's better than "Stranger Things", and OA, and Black Mirror. The writing and story are brilliant. Completely unpredictable yet filled with heart and adventure.

    Funny, I am 67 and grew up in San Fernando Valley from 1959-1989. Nostalgia very good. Did not know Glenne Headly had died. I loved her work!
