ALMOST HUMAN Recap: “Arrhythmia”


Almost Human finished up its truncated first run of episodes (it’s on a break until January) with a strong hour focusing on illegal organ transplants.  Only six episodes in, the series already has a good patter, and has established its world and its major characters in a familiar but engaging way.

“Arrhythmia’s” trajectory felt a lot like a Law and Order episode, where good, methodical police work leads the detectives down a rabbit hole to get their ultimate prize (they may encounter small-fry crooks along the way, but the kingmaker is saved until last).  This winding tale may have been a traditional approach, but that doesn’t diminish its ability to entertain, which it certainly did.  Hit the jump for why, “just because something is used, doesn’t meant it lacks value.”
