I’ve been looking forward to Almost Human for a while. I’ve been enjoying FOX’s apparent commitment to diversity, and knew I wanted to check out this show for two reasons: its futuristic element and its black co-star Michael Ealy.
The two leads have a great chemistry together that works both during action and also comedically.
It’s clear that so far it will be a classic procedural type show, with futuristic crime fighting and androids. I think the story arc of the case that went wrong and the missing girlfriend will be interested, especially the girlfriend. I have a couple of theories as to who she is and why she disappeared, but I suppose we’ll find out more soon enough. My initial theory is that she is an android but he didn’t know it.
I think I like it so far. Some of the case stuff blazes past me, but that’s just how I am with procedurals. I tend to watch for the characters as opposed to the case (unless it’s a really good, twisty mystery).
I can’t wait for tumblr and gif-makers start to make gifs of Michael Ealy’s facial expressions, because they are hilarious and awesome.
I don’t think I care about Minka Kelly and I sense no chemistry between her and Kennex for me to care at all. =/
It’s a really interesting move that two of the most genre’d procedurals on the network are going to be aired the same night, both with black/white duos, with a focus on another time, and missing ex-love interests plus current ones. I dunno, there is something actually very similar about both of these shows. I hope they pair well together. Didn’t seem like too much for me tonight when I watched live and in succession.
Until next week! We’ll see how it goes.
