We hadn't quite kept up with the entirety of FOX's Karl Urban-Michael Ealy android cop drama, though the early episodes were promising enough and increased serialization brought stronger reviews from the fanbase. Alas, FOX has not proven as sympathetic with J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman's post-'Fringe' sci-fier, officially canceling 'Almost Human' after one season.
We've been waiting for a worthy successor to 'Fringe' for months now, but is J.J. Abrams' futuristic cop drama 'Almost Human' up to the task? A full eight minutes from the pilot episode have been made available to viewers, following the earlier delay of the premiere, so find out for yourself if the new robot cop drama from the minds behind 'Fringe' and starring 'Star Trek''s Karl Urban is worth a look!
Among the fall offerings yet to premiere, FOX's futuristic 'Fringe'-produced cop drama 'Almost Human' has us itching for more, though it seems the network isn't so keen to take us to the future just yet. Along with a brand-new trailer, the Karl Urban-starring thriller has been pushed back two weeks for a Sunday premiere on November 17, followed by another new episode on the 18. So, why the change?
Our long, slow trek into darkness is almost over. We've seen and reviewed the 'Star Trek' sequel and soon you will, too. (Well, you'll see it – whether your review will be anything more than saying, “hey, that was fun!” as you go out for Whoppers afterwards is up to you.)
The Federated States of Bad Robot have made a global sweep of the world's press, starting in Sydney and ending in Los Angeles. We put a call into sick bay and had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban, back on board the Enterprise as the lovable curmudgeon Dr. Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy. Urban's take on Starfleet's finest chief medical officer is a welcome bit of comic relief in 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so much so that it took great self-restraint to keep from begging him to shout “dammit!' over the phone. We did, however, touch upon other topics.
The news from Upfront presentations will be pouring in over the next few days, and FOX is the latest to make some bold announcements. In addition to J.J. Abrams' futuristic cop thriller 'Almost Human,' the network has given series orders to its modern 'Sleepy Hollow' procedural, a 'Gang Related' drama featuring 'LOST's Terry O'Quinn, and Greg Kinnear's 'House'-like lawyer drama 'Rake,' from the UK series of the same name. Preview FOX's fall drama line-up inside!
The cast and crew of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' are currently on a whirlwind publicity tour. Starting in Sydney, then Moscow and Germany, now London. We had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban (aka Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy) whose comic relief performance in this sequel is just as terrific as in the first.
He does, however, get to do a little scientific work in the picture, and some of it involves medical tests from some old fuzzy franchise friend – the Tribbles.
Sharp-eyed viewers saw a Tribble in the 2009 picture (it's on Scotty's desk during the Delta Vega sequence) but this time he's front and center. We asked Urban about working with a Tribble and he told us a surprising fact.
Between the titular role of 'Dredd' and the iconic portrayal of classic 'Star Trek' character Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Karl Urban needed little help breaking out as a major Hollywood talent. Even so, 'Star Trek Into Darkness' director J.J. Abrams has decided to continue his relationship with Urban, tapping the actor for the lead role in forthcoming FOX drama pilot 'Human,' a new high-concept drama of police officers and their android partners. Get an inside look at Karl Urban's new TV role inside!
