1.13 Straw Man
The path to get through Almost Human season one has been far from smooth at times. It’s like they’d made Kennex’s artificial leg a little longer than the real one. This isn’t strange for a new series; the creative people behind the show try to judge what’s working, what’s not, and how best to move forward.
From the pilot it was obvious Almost Human had a major success with the combination of Karl Urban and Michael Ealy. It just gelled, and every scene they had together lit up the screen. The issue, and it didn’t really take long to emerge, is what to surround that strong character relationship with.
That’s what Straw Man massively underlined.
