A is for 'Almost Human' (and Action and Androids)

Click to see theme
Almost Human is a futuristic sci-fi drama, and currently my favorite show on TV. Unfortunately, it's also the only show I recap which is also in danger of not returning. In fact, it's squarely "on the bubble" between renewal and the "c" word, which I refuse to type in the same paragraph as such an awesome series.

It has three of my favorite things: a bromance, a fine line between snarky hilarity and deep, dark concepts that make you think, and cool future tech. It also has two other As that I love: Androids and Action.
This one is right from one of my GifTweetCaps, and a fine example of snarky hilarity.
Det. Kennex doesn't like MX androids much. :) This image is available on this Tumblr post.
This is also from one of my GifTweetCaps. Here's an example of the show's cool future tech!

The guy giving the leg is an android named Dorian,
and he's giving the leg to Det. Kennex, who lost his leg. They are cop partners.

#Arrow: I have also considered adding Arrow to the list of shows I recap each week (which I will likely begin with the 2014 finale in a few weeks), mainly because of the view:
Hot guy alert! :) This image is available on this Tumblr post.

  2. I'm behind on Arrow, but my husband stayed up all night one night trying to catch up. It's a pretty good show. One among many I need to catch up on.

  4. My familiarity with this show is nonexistent, but Detective Kennex is a cutie. He's the one in the first frame who shoots that Droid thing, right? I've seen him in other productions. A hot tottie for sure! :)

    1. Oh yes, he's actually pretty famous. He's been in lots of other movies, including the Star Trek reboot as Bones, and The Chronicles of Riddick

  8. I haven't heard of Almost Human either! Maybe it needs more promo, you know, so it won't come close to hearing the dreaded c word.

    1. Yeah, I don't understand why they never promoted it. The ratings were actually fantastic compared with the same ratings for the show that came right after, which had tons of promotion, including promos during the Super Bowl (AH didn't have a single ad during the Super Bowl).

  12. Thanks for dropping by my blog. I had to return the favour. I am so glad I did! Never seen these series, but I just might now. I was hooked on to 24 and XIII for the longest bit. And I love your quirky way of doing a blog post. I should try this sometime :)

    1. Your welcome, and I'm glad to have found your blog as well! Isn't it cool that 24 is coming back, or were you done with it when it ended the first time? :)

  14. I love this show as well, I mainly watched it because I'm a Star Trek fan and I liked Karl Urban as Bones but regardless of the reason, I really enjoy this show. I truly hope it doesn't get cancelled. I didn't realize it was on the bubble.

  16. That first clip caught my attention. A shattered android face? Then all those amazing animal pictures kept me oohing and awing.

  17. I have tried not to get too attached to Almost Human because I too am afraid it may not last long. I think the premise is great (as a super fan of IRobot) and I enjoyed your post! Thanks for connecting #a2zchallenge

    1. Of the remaining shows not canceled or renewed already, it actually has the best chance of renewal. We'll just have to wait and see, which is difficult, but won't be much longer. The deadline for them to announce the show's fate is on May 12. In fact, I know of someone on Facebook who works for a company that speaks with the networks, and he says it sounds very promising. Trying not to get excited until I hear official news. :)

  18. Totally HEART Arrow! I love how you refer to Almost Human having a bromance. Now that I think about it, I think that's one element of Supernatural I love so much. Give me some Sam and Dean anytime. Wanted to hop over from the Alleyway to thank you for commenting on a few of my posts. I really appreciate it!

    And I just noticed you're working on a social gaming platform. Sounds intriguing.

    1. Love Supernatural too. Bromances are always the best. :) You're welcome for the comments, and thank you for yours as well!

      I'd better take down the gaming thing, as I finished with that and am now working on a new sort of platform. Thanks again! :)
