Trivia

In the final moments of the final episode of the show, backstage photographs and video-clips of Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson being coached by the 'real' Josh, Tiger and Wolf can be seen; (as well as the actual magazines, wanted posters etc that certain scenes in the series reference.) It is notable because the characters, whose supposedly 'true' story the show is based on, are all people of color - comedically highlighting Hollywood's tendency to whitewash roles. See more »

In the tradition of, "Space Cop"
15 November 2017 | by bradtylermusicSee all my reviews

"Future Man," balances a mix of three genres, action, sci-fi, and comedy...in the tradition of "Space Cop." I felt compelled to mention "Space Cop," because although "Future Man," does give credit to some of the movies that obviously inspired it (and which it spoofs), i.e. The Last Starfighter, Back To The Future, and The Terminator, to name a few, it fails to give a shout out to the Red Letter Media guys even though right from the beginning we get voice over that sounds just like Rich Evans as Space Cop.

With that out of the way, I'm thankful to whoever at Hulu was bright enough to realize this show could work. "Future Man," is well cast, and well executed. It manages to be blunt with action and violence and subtle at the same time, making many jokes that could go by unnoticed if you aren't paying attention. And despite cookie cutter character archetypes, all of the actors give convincing performances that make me care about them and excited to be along for the ride.

If you enjoy sci-fi/action movies from the 80's and 90's,then I can't imagine how you wouldn't love, "Future Man," a series that both celebrates those films and pokes fun of them at the same time.
