Future Man: Season 1 (2017)




Critic 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.

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.

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.
