Almost Human, Season 1, Episode 2: “Skin”

Written by Cheo Hodari Coker

Directed by Michael Offer

Airs Mondays at 8 P.M. Et on Fox

The problem with crime dramas these days is the fact that there are so many of them. It’s easy for a good story with unique qualities to fall into step with similarly-constructed procedural sameness. Fortunately, “Skin” continues to differentiate Almost Human from the dozens of other network series and provides plenty of hope for the show’s future.

Detective John Kennex and Dorian, his android partner, appear well-adjusted working on the force together. Despite their rough first mission, the two are quickly becoming a great team. Urban and Ealy are a delightful onscreen pairing. From their car ride banter to conversations eliciting more thoughtful responses, their chemistry as buddies and investigators reaches heights that elevate the episode’s writing, which in itself comes across smarter and better overall here. »
