TV show description:
This sci-fi police drama takes place 35 years into the future, in the year 2048. It’s a world in which police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids.

Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) is a cop who’s survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. He wakes up after a 17-month coma. He can’t remember much — except that his partner was killed. He’s lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage. He suffers from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTSD and the “psychological rejection of his synthetic body part.”

John returns to work at the encouragement of his longtime ally, Captain Sandra Maldonado (Lili Taylor). Every cop must now be paired with a robot and, despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is no exception.

He’s partnered with a battle-ready MX-43 model. He abruptly terminates this pairing after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. As a result, technician Rudy Lom (Mackenzie Crook) introduces John to Dorian (Michael Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses.

Although these responses were deemed flaws, it’s these “flaws” that John relates to Dorian most — John is part-machine and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian’s understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them.

As he adjusts to working with his new partner, John also must learn to get along with his new colleagues, like the sharp and insightful human intelligence analyst Detective Valerie Stahl (Minka Kelly) and Detective Richard Paul (Michael Irby), a distrustful man who doesn’t welcome John back with open arms.

Very disappointed this show was cancelled. The characters development was just getting interesting and I was looking forward to see what would happen in the second season. Boo to Fox. Cancelling the Sarah Connor Chronicles was a mistake too.

SYFY finally has afew Good science fiction shows and you cancel avery good one. Is there a reason why? I would like to know, many of the actors were good and the stories were creatively believable. Did the writers get lazy? I really would like to see this show picked back up thank you for listening to me not sure if this even gets to agood place just hope it does. Thank. Dawn

I hate that this show was cancelled. Every time a decent show starts, it gets pulled. I think they’re asking the wrong people for their opinions!

Wow. My husband and I just were wondering when Almost Human was coming on and it’s cancelled?!?! One of the few really good shows. Love Urban! Bones has jumped the shark.

What the … That show was great. I’m sitting here trying to find out when it’s coming back on, and I find out that it was cancelled. Am I so out of touch with the world that no one else likes the things that I like? Bring it back. The acting, the story, everything about that show was working.

Bring it Back. Looks like it was cancelled for Gotham. I will not watch any new shows on this network because they canceled Almost Human. BRING BACK ALMOST HUMAN!

I was disappointed to find that they had cancelled this show. I really enjoy sci-fi and it seems the good ones are getting cut. I hope they bring it back.

Darn, this was a really excellent show, great story lines, fascinating characters, one of the best new sci-fi shows in a very long time, and I am shocked it didn’t make it. I was so looking forward to seeing the second season. If there’s any chance of it being brought back, I’d cheer, loudly!
