Almost Human, FOX’s new sci-fi crime drama may have arrived a few weeks late, but it seems to be worth the wait. Not surprising since the show comes from an impressive pedigree—creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman (Fringe) and Emmy award winning (and general life-winning) executive producer J.J. Abrams (All The Franchises).
Almost Human is set in L.A. 2048, which looks similar to L.A., 2019 (and, to be fair, similar to a lot of future L.A.s). The rapid advancement of technology has resulted in a 400% increase in crime. To fight the rising tide of violence, advanced combat-ready androids are issued as partners to every officer in the police department (with, as we’ll see, varying degrees of success).
