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.

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.

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.

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]

A lot of science fiction is pretty derivative. At least "Future Man" knows it's stealing from other TV shows and movies, and isn't ashamed that you know it knows.

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

With Future Man, Hulu may just have accomplished what many have tried but few have succeeded in doing: creating the perfect comedy/science-fiction hybrid.

The fact that I've grown to like these characters enough that I wouldn't mind spending a few more hours with them.

Future Man is derivative, but at least it knows it's derivative.

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.

Dude-bro comedy has language, violence, is pretty funny.

There's a level to which the show is progressive - and truly funny! - but that self-awareness only extends to whichever meme is being lampooned in that moment. Otherwise, the jokes now feel woefully mistimed.

Coupe, Wilson, and Hutcherson all show a nice facility for playing off of one another as well as a sense of balance with the material, deftly avoiding the temptation to overplay.

Future Man is funny enough in its meta commentary on media culture that it's sure to appeal to the young male audience it targets.

So if you're looking for something enjoyable and easy to binge when you're stuck on your family's couch next week, "Future Man" is your best bet. But perhaps only if your family is good with the Rogen and Goldberg's trademark raunch.

Despite the game energy of its cast, Future Man is mostly routine homage, with very little substance shoring up its derivative foundations.
November 15, 2017
The central joke -- that the initially hapless Josh is not at all what the future was hoping to find -- is a good one, and it keeps paying off.
November 14, 2017
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.

For the most part, Future Man works. The show gets a lot of help from its cast.
