This one should be fun, in an Indie kind of way. Her is about a specially designed artificial intelligence, custom built for the end user, and the poor schmuck who has to spend the rest of his life with her. Sometimes our Evil Robot Overlords are also our better half.

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.
