Future Man: Season 1 Reviews

November 20, 2017
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.

Despite the game energy of its cast, Future Man is mostly routine homage, with very little substance shoring up its derivative foundations.

There's no reason to shrug off something this thoughtless from comedians who are supposed to be smart.

Who has an appetite these days for the kind of misogyny and crude sex jokes that could only come from the creators of "Sausage Party," Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

It's slightly appalling how often Future Man straight-up rips off the best-known moments from beloved earlier works in the guise of paying homage, then shrugs off its own lack of imagination by copping to the fact that the show is a pastiche.

The storyline -- sending Josh and his deadly new pals back in time to save the future -- is so steeped in sci-fi homages and clichs that there's precious little here about which to get truly excited.

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.
