This review is based on the pilot which aired 9/21/15.
Fox does not have a good history with science fiction shows doing well and being renewed (Almost Human.) That being said,
If you watched Almost Human, you know its not for lack of trying, as it was a fantastic show which imaginative ideas and some really
cool sci-fi tech. Well, I am really proud to report that based on the pilot of Minority Report, we are going to be seeing some even cooler
sci-fi tech. I was really impressed by the ingenuity of the future design, and the seamlessness in which its presented as the present reality of the show.
The characters seem to have a lot of depth and are interesting. The lead detective reminds me of Abby Mills from Sleepy Hollow (no, not because she's black!) and Dash is a great character because he has many strengths and weaknesses, all of which are extremely apparent. Furthermore, on the subject of Dash, like Blindspot and Limitless, we have a main character with a unique or special ability. This makes for good TV. He is not just some guy who happens to be the protagonist. There is a reason why he is the protagonist and we want to see him use his abilities and ride along with him as he figures out the most effective way to use them to make the world a safer place.
Minority report is exceptionally well thought out, has strong writing, a fast pace, diversity, a strong female lead, ample science-fiction tech
and even with a procedural format, each episode should be highly interesting if not just for the awesome science fiction tech :).
Fans of Almost Human, Intelligence, Believe, Crisis and other great shows that were cancelled last year will enjoy this. Lets hope this modern
Sci-Fi network show makes it through. However, based on the pilot ratings ... it's not looking good. What the hell Fox. How does Empire get 21 million viewers
and Minority Report get 3?
