In Requiem for Almost Human

Almost Human was wonderful science fiction that explore law enforcement in the future. From police drones, to computer forensics, to online dating, and 3D Printing of everything from drugs to human bodies, the show covered not just emerging technologies of today, but future legal issues. It is a shame it was cancelled.DRN_BluRayThis was the first science fiction show that gave more than lip service to civil rights. Seeing a suspect exercise his right to an attorney, and having his lawyer appear by hologram, was not just Constitutional, but creative.

It was a show for geeks, taking inspiration from classics such as Blade Runner and others. Karl Urban was even able to deliver the classic Han Solo line, “Boring conversation anyway” after hanging up someone.

I salute the creative team for what they produced and wish it could have lasted more than half a season.
