I'm digging Almost Human. Zevida, definitely give a try. Don't let what you read change your perception of the show.

If Almost Human is canceled, does that mean 2048 police cars won't be 2013 Ford Fusions?

Almost Human is frankly mediocre, but it's just about the only non-dystopic future SF show on these days. I need that in my life.

LOL!

Intelligence is one of the dumbest show to me. I like the idea but the execution sucks, bad acting, lack of linearity, disconnects persist, and it's difficult to luck at the lead guy with his horrible toupee and distractingly weird hair. Perhaps if the writing, story-line or acting was good I wouldn't notice, let alone be repulsed.

I agree, it's dumb, but it's a fun kind of dumb. If you suspend all belief, it can be enjoyable.

Steve, I keep watching it because I love the concept. It just doesn't hang together for me and I'm unable to suspend disbelief. I really wanted to like it and keep hanging in there (I usually delete a SP PDQ if it doesn't work for it) but I've stayed like moth to flame!

Kinda sad but I was thinking about bailing after this season.
Spoiler:
Sally becoming a witch was pretty much the last straw. Witches are a tv show's way of pulling anything out of it's butt without logic.

Oh, I didn't know this. I'm still watching this one but it is getting a little tedious. I really liked these characters, though, for a few seasons.

Me too. Except for the actress that played Sally, I preferred "Being Human" US actors to the UK ones. I bailed this season though.

I'm in the same boat as others of having the Almost Human episodes recorded but not watched. So when I get to it, I should watch in episode order, not aired order??

I haven't noticed any continuity issues so far.

The only continuity problems are in the relationships between characters.

If it helps, TV By the Numbers has moved Almost Human into the Toss Up category:

Put me in the camp that hasn't started it, but has all episodes on a DVR waiting.

Not necessarily...there are some science fiction fans who loathe and despise vampires on principle.

(I do want to see Being Almost Human, however...the touching story of a vampire, a werewolf, a ghost, and a robot living together in a futuristic city, solving crimes, and learning what it means to be human.)

+1. This season is awful.

Spoiler:
Josh's "half-changing on a whim" (a la MTV's Teen Wolf) storyline has me rolling my eyes. Sally's witch ghost, death spot, time travel nonsense is just as silly.

Watching order-

Almost Human > Being Human > Walking dead

Cycle of life, at least title wise.

Waiting for what? This really isn't a serial. This isn't the kind of show you'll be pissed if it gets cancelled in the middle of some compelling story line. I say, watch the first episode, and if you like it, enjoy the ride until it's adios.

I don't think this season is awful but I'm definitely not happy about the developments you spoilerized. I was on the fence about continuing with it next year.

I like Almost Human a lot even though it could be better too.
