'Almost Human' series premiere: The future looks familiar

The premiere of "Almost Human," like a lot of pilot episodes, had a lot of heavy lifting to do -- but at the same time, it felt pretty familiar.On the one hand, Sunday's (Nov. 17) series premiere had to introduce lead character John Kennex (Karl Urban), the near-future world he inhabits and Dorian (Michael Ealy), the decommissioned android brought back into circulation to be his partner. It also had to sketch in supporting characters and provide a plot-moving case. But because all of that is set within the framework of that most familiar of TV genres, a cop show, the establishment of all those things is a little easier. The audience has seen a thousand driven, loner detectives before, and a thousand partners who act as the yang to that yin.

ALMOST HUMAN: Minka Kelly and Lili Taylor On What Drew Them to the Series

When I sat down with ALMOST HUMAN stars Minka Kelly (Valerie Stahl) and Lili Taylor (Sandra Maldonado), I was curious what it was about […] //www.givememyremote.com/remote/2013/11/15/almost-human-minka-kelly-and-lili-taylor-on-what-drew-them-to-the-series/
