Almost Human Season 1 Review “Pilot”

It’s always been said that it’s impossible to please everyone. Despite all of the talent or money that you throw at a TV series or movie, it seems that there will always be naysayers. In fact, with the advent of internet commenters and Twitter, it seems that it’s impossible to please anyone.

As soon as the premise for Almost Human was released, the internet cried foul at the derivative nature of the series. With hints of “Blade Runner”, “I, Robot”, “Minority Report”, and “Total Recall” all mixed in, people were a little concerned that this show was lacking in originality. Even with the Fringe dream team of co-creators JJ Abrams and JH Wyman reuniting with director Brad Anderson, not to mention the acting talent of likable leading men Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, it’s all in vain if we don’t have a good story to really invest in. So did tonight’s pilot episode give us the story we need? Well…yes and no.
