Almost Human

After having learned my lesson from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – a show I was excited about after watching the first episode, but that I quit with the second – I wanted to give Almost Human a few episodes before I write about whether I like it or not. The verdict? I do like it, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to follow forever if they don’t start building some sort of overarching storyline that continues from one episode to the next, as I don’t really like watching procedurals. But I like the futuristic world that is presented, and the two main characters are great. What I’m hoping is that, like Fringe, we’re just on a slow burn as they try to build an audience, before coming up with interesting multi-episode or multi-season stories.

Fringe

It’s taken me a long time to really get into this show, but man, it certainly has me now. I watched the first season after it first aired, and although by the end of it I was enjoying the overarching storyline, I stopped watching when season 2 started as it was back to monster-of-the-week episodes. I started watching it again a few months ago from the start with my wife – the first two seasons are on Hulu JP – and we quickly became quite addicted to it. This past weekend we finished the second season – with those mind-blowing 2 episodes at the end – and now I’m having a hell of a good time watching the third season. It’s just crazy how good this show got – talk about a slow burn. Can’t wait to see where all of this goes – and it’s great that it’s already all finished, so I can watch at my own pace (i.e. binge).
