Lots of statues were handed out during the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, a night filled with big triumphs and only a few major disappointments.

Is it worth watching a cancelled TV show?

Should an early cancellation put you off watching a TV show in the first place?

Feature

Floating in on the yearly tide of TV renewals is the yearly disappointment of cancellation. However many fingers are crossed or hashtagged prayers are sent, network television’s quest to conquer ever more viewers and awards inevitably has its casualties. Too expensive to make? Not enough viewers? Lukewarm reception from critics? Then sayonara, promising new sci-fi. We hardly knew you.

Almost Human is one such show. A future-set sci-fi take on the buddy cop genre, it received a thirteen-episode season one order from Fox in 2013 and a shed load of pricy promotion for its November the 4th premiere. And then? At the eleventh hour, the premiere was pushed back a fortnight, co-showrunner Naren Shankar left citing “creative differences”, and only four of its thirteen episodes were aired in the intended running order.

Despite some great world-building,

A feature length documentary with cast and crew interviews, behind the screams with Tom Savini, deleted scenes, TV spot, trailer and stills gallery.

Up until this past year, I’d always thought ‘whatever happened to the horror anthology sub-genre?’ We haven’t had a decent one since Michael Dougherty’s 2007s cult classic Trick R’ Treat. While a recent resurgence may have seen the likes of V/H/S and The Abcs Of Death attempt to recapture that spirit,
