A Raunchy, Hilarious Stew Cooked Up From The Plot Ingredients Of Every Sci-Fi Film You Ever Saw
21 January 2018 | by gogoschka-1See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this show more or less by accident, and I'm honestly surprised it seems to have flown a bit under the radar, given it was produced by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. But I'm glad I did check it out; this hilarious, over the top romp was a blast from start to finish. Let me warn you, though: it's a bit of an acquired taste and certainly not for everyone. But if you like the sort of raunchy humor the Rogen/Goldberg brand usually stands for, AND you're a fan of the most iconic sci-fi blockbusters that came out over the last 30 years, chances are you're going to love it.

So what exactly is it? Well, the story pretty much recycles nearly every important plot point from nearly every better known sci-fi flick that came out over the past three decades; the show gleefully rampages through everything from 'Back To The Future' to 'Terminator I & II' to 'The Butterfly Effect' and shamelessly plunders and spoofs whatever it likes along the way. And it actually doesn't limit itself to just spoofing sci-fi: from 'Easy Rider' to 'Top Gun' nothing is safe from 'Future Man', and if you started a drinking game and had to take a sip every time you spotted a reference from another movie, you'd be drunk 20 minutes into the first episode.

But it's not all just lose references and jokes, and despite starting a bit uneven pacing wise and initially giving off the impression of an overlong comedy sketch, 'Future Man' actually soon has an engaging story to tell that ends up being quite original in its own right. As the show goes on, the characters become more than just caricatures, and chances are you'll absolutely love them by the end; they even all get satisfying arcs (naturally, of the more hilarious sort).

My verdict: For sci-fi nerds and fans of over the top comedy (who don't mind the occasional bit of gore, semen or other bodily fluids) this is a must. 8 Stars out of 10.
