Hey awesome nerds!

As seasons change for television, TV fans find out it if their favorite shows got renewed or cancelled. It always sucks when potentially great shows get cancelled before it could even get a good start! But, it happens all the time! On the other hand, TV fans rejoice when great shows gets renewed for the next season. 

As for me, I am ecstatic that a variety of television shows that I have "fangirled" over season after season will be coming back in the Fall! Not just new shows, TV fans can also look forward to spin-offs from favorite shows such as Once Upon A Time in Wonderland (from Once Upon A Time). With amazing shows that are coming back, TV fans can also look forward to new shows hitting the television screen in which I can say that I am looking forward to watching, like Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC; Dracula on NBC and The Crazy Ones on CBS. And, that's only naming a few!

Now, here's another new series that caught my eye...Almost Human. I seemed to like a cross between I, Robot and RoboCop with action, adventure, drama and a touch of comedy...hahaha!! And, I was pulled in...
l-r: Michael Irby, Mackenzie Crook, Lili Taylor, Karl Urban, Michael Ealy
and Minka Kelly
What's the show about?
From Emmy Award-winning executive producer J.J. Abrams and creator/executive producer J.H. Wyman, comes Almost Human. Starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, the new series is an action-packed police drama set 35 years in the future, when police officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. 

The year is 2048. Meet John Kennex (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department. After waking up from a 17-month coma, he can't remember much - except that his partner was killed; his girlfriend, Anna Moore (Mekia Cox), left him after the attack; and he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage.

Suffering from depression, mental atrophy, trauma-onset OCD, PTS and the "physchological rejection of his synthetic body part," John returns to work at the behest of longtime allly Captain Sandra Maldonado (Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor). By mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with a battle-ready MX-43. But he abruptly terminates his partnership after the robot discovers incriminating information about him. So technician Rudy Lom (Mackenzie Crook) introduces John to Dorian (Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these "flaws" that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, 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, including the eager and somewhat starstruck Detective Valerie Stahl (Minka Kelly) and the distrustful Detective Richard Paul (Michael Irby), who does not welcome John back with open arms.

Almost Human will follow the week-to-week missions of John and Dorian, as they fight crime across this futuristic landscape, while the mysteries surrounding his attack and the larger mythology of this new world unfold. 

Almost Human is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series is created by J.H. Wyman, who wrote the pilot. The series is executive-produced by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and J.H. Wyman. Kathy Lingg and Reid Shane are co-executive producers. Brad Anderson directed and served as co-executive producer on the pilot.

This could this be the start of a new hit TV series!!??!! It definitely has a great crew behind it. I am definitely looking forward to checking out this show. 

So, what do you think awesome nerds!?! 

Don't forget to follow me for more of things that are nerdy and geeky!
