The Onion shows us the only news that matters – the news from THE FUTURE.

(I’m soon to run a cyberpunk-setting pen-and-paper RPG with some friends and this is just perfect setting fodder!  Marvelous slang.)

Above, a trailer for a new sci-fi show, called (at least so far) Almost Human.  A broken cop awakes 2 years after a terrible accident to find his world full of synthetic police persons – persons that he has a deep seated dislike and distrust of.  Cue him getting a new partner, being unstable, angry and hard to get on with.

It looks so incredibly lush – with visual callbacks to things like Bladerunner, Minority Report and possibly even the credits to Person of Interest.

I would watch this SO HARD.

[EDIT:  And I did – before it got cancelled 😦  Shame they showed the episodes out of order, and I’m sad they cancelled it just as it was getting really interesting!]
