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.

It is one of the best made most intelligent TV shows presented last year. Please let it be renewed. Lili Taylor should be used more.

I think it should be renewed. This is one of the best shows Fox has aired and shouldn’t cancel it. They always put on good shows then cancel them. But keep the bad shows on. For once leave a good show on

This is an excellent program, which will probably be its doom, but I hope it will return.

I would hate to see this show cancelled. The stories about where technology could take us in the future are creative and entertaining. The main characters’ chemistry is a big part of the draw. Dorian brings a lot of humor to the show. The only criticism I would have is that the background music overwhelms the dialogue in a lot of the scenes. Please dial it back, and, please give this show some more time to gain a faithful following!

I would hate to see this show cancelled. I always made time to watch it. I love the humor and interaction between John and Dorian. It’s not too violent. The only other drama on fox I watch is Bones. Don’t give up on this. It is show I can watch with my son who also enjoys it. This the first I have stuck up for a show I don’t want to see cancelled.
