NYCC: Almost Human and The 100 Pilots Panel

Hey Otakus and Geeks fans, today was the first day of New York Comic Con 2013 and they did not disappoint! The next four days we will be posting news, photos, and special events of the day. Today we attended the Pilots Panel for two shows coming this November and January, Almost Human and The 100. Both Pilots were amazing and something viewers should defiantly check out. Here is a synopsis about each show and opinion about the pilots.

Almost Human

In the year 2048, technology has run amok and spun crime out of control, leading the police department to partner each human cop with an MX-43 android (or “synthetic”) — but Detective John Kennex (Urban), upon waking from a 17-month coma, is having none of that. Still, rules are rules, so he is paired with a decommissioned, “more human” model, the DRN (Ealy) — but just call him “Dorian

Thoughts on The Pilot: The pilot episode was great! I have to admit when I first saw the preview I said "Here we go A.I. feeling emotions show." But I was WRONG!!! The episode starts off with action, suspense, drama and keeps it going the entire time. The mystery about John Kennex (Urban) past memories, the criminal syndicate he is hunting, and why his DNR partner (Early) was decommissioned, is going to make a great first season. I don't want to give too much away so check it out November 4th on Fox.

The 100

In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

 Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

 Thoughts on The Pilot: What happens when you mix Lord of the Fly's, Future Tech, and a great story....... A Better version of After Earth (LOL). What you get is the new CW show The 100. I never saw a preview or heard of the show and was entertained till the end of the episode. The series is based on a book of the same name, the first in a series by Kass Morgan, and developed by Jason Rothenberg. The story starts fast and keeps going. 100 young teens drop on a planet and left to their own devices... you know where this is going. This might become a viewer favorite. The 100 airs January 1 2014.
