I hate to sound harsh but I found last week's episode of Almost Human to be utterly meh. It was very formulaic--my watching companion noted that all the epsiodes of Almost Human are "resolved" in the last five minutes--you can practically sent your watch to it, and, I'm getting bored of both Lili Taylor and Minka Kelly doing very little to flesh out their characters.
Additionally, it's becoming apparent why Karl Urban is not a leading man in films despite his hunky appearance--he's sort of boring. His basic modes are annoyed or disturbed or puzzled and disturbed. His android partner Dorian, is more interesting and more appealing. And yeah, I get it that the dynamic is "suppposed" to work that way but I don't think the plan was for Michael Ealy's character to eclipse Karl Urban's.
Going to give this show a bit more time to find its legs as shows in their first seasons sometimes need, but I'm getting the same vibe I had with FOX's "Fringe." The premise sounded awesome. I was hoping for a new show to stay with for the long haul and though Fringe lasted 5 years I was out before 5 episodes. I may not even have much more than five episodes of Almost Human to watch because as of now, it is pulling unspectacular ratings--it is 'on the bubble' for the order for it's second half of season one. In other words, despite the enormous hype going into this show, FOX is not sure of its potential longevity, either.
