The new Fox program Almost Human kicks off on November 4th. It looks very much like a remake of >Total Recall: 2070, which was itself an amalgam of a number of Philip K. Dick’s more paranoid police state stories and the Isaac Asimov series of R. Daneel Olivaw/Elijah Bailey mysteries. Robot Daneel and his human partner Elijah were cops who were very good at solving locked room murders, although the “room” was generally a sealed habitat either in orbit or on a planet.
