A solid show
17 February 2014 | by dschlatterSee all my reviews

Almost Human is just the way I like it: - Good production values - Well-crafted characters (even if some of them are walking clichés) - Interesting and not overly complicated stories - Every now and then something I haven't seen or heard before

A.H. provides fun, action and coolness. Not an awful lot of it all, but just enough.

There 's just one small issue. (And this happens way too often in Hollywood!) Very much like in The Mentalist, the eye candy (Amanda Righetti) is just that; eye candy. In Almost Human the eye candy is impersonated by Minka Kelly. And she has no real function besides that. (Well, she is the love interest of Karl Urban, but that really falls under the same category, doesn't it) Will her clothes ever get dirty? No. Will her hair ever not be perfect? No. Will she ever express rage or fury? Or sadness? Probably no. See where I'm going with this?

So dear producers/directors and make-up artists: Would you please give her something useful to do? She is not a cop, but a model who happens to work at a police station. Maybe make her only 70% pretty and 30% a real cop? Please. Change. That!

Thank you!
