Unfortunately Fox has done it again. Despite hailing from creative geniuses J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman, Fox has cancelled its hot Sci-Fi series Almost Human. The show that premiered last November with strong ratings and unique actors Karl Urban and Michael Ealy had experienced a steady decline its numbers towards the end of its first season. The rest of the cast was made up of a wonderful cast made up of Lili Taylor, Minka Kelly, Makenzie Crook and Michael Irby. TVLine’s annual “Keep or Cut” survey had Almost Human receiving the strongest support for renewal, with 88 percent of those who tendered an opinion voting to save the sci-fi series. Sci-Fi fans hope that Fox is not repeating their notorious mistake known as the cancellation of Firefly.
Almost Human was a futuristic cop drama that took place in 2048 where Los Angeles police were partnered with androids. The charm of the show was its burned out yet determined Detective John Kennex, played by Urban, and his bromance with his surprisingly human-like android partner, Dorian. Urban played a depressed and trauma scorched cop with a synthetic leg who was always hell bent on catching the bad guys. Dorian, played by Michael Ealy, was part human and related well to his partner’s struggles. They complimented each other with humor and drama that will be sorely missed.
