J.J. Abrams and J.H.Wyman’s upcoming sci-fi series Almost Human blew up a trailer in a controlled explosion yesterday near the Great Northern Way campus [for episode 1×07 Simon Says]. Police investigate a suspicious trailer. One of them triggers an explosive device and the trailer explodes, according to the film notice. Pawel Maryniak captured it below in a way someone on the ground probably couldn’t.
Almost Human takes place in the not too distant future in 2048 when Los Angeles is ruled by crime syndicates and police outnumbered to the point they are paired with android police partners for protection. John Kennex (Star Trek’s Karl Urban) is sidelined by injury and returns to duty with a robotic leg but remains stubbornly anti-”synthetic”. So he is paired with a more human android model Dorian (Michael Ealy), one who has emotions. This odd partnership of a part-robot human and part-human robot develops into a futuristic bromance with lots of humour. Almost Human premieres over two nights this Sunday, November 17th and Monday, November 18th, on FOX and Global TV.
