It's Science Fiction Week on FOX

Posted: Updated:

On Monday, ALMOST HUMAN is finishing up its Season 1 finale. In case you've been missing out on this sci-fi action drama, I'll give you a quick breakdown. It's the future, year 2048, and scientists are creating androids that are almost identical to humans, both physically and mentally! A rough and tough human cop with a mechanical leg, John Kennex, is partnered with an android named Dorian. Dorian is no regular android because he was made to have feelings, thus making him have unexpected emotional responses that the public deems dangerous. The great thing about this show is that it poses those mind-numbing questions like: what does it really mean to be a living entity? Or, what's the exact thing or things that make us more important and living than artificial intelligence? These are just some of the questions that you will keep you pondering while watching Almost Human. In my opinion, it's a definite must-watch.


Oh and before I forget! There's another great show that'll keep your eyes peeled and your brain constantly turning is COSMOS, which premieres March 9th!  That's this upcoming Sunday at 8pm. This science documentary series is actually a follow-up to the 80's version, originally hosted by Carl Sagan, who was a brilliant scientist in many fields. I didn't even know some of these fields existed like Astrobiology and Exobiology! I definitely need to learn a little more about these before I watch Cosmos, but that's no reason not to watch it!  But that's not to say, Neil deGrasse Tyson won't be up to challenge! The new Cosmos host has paired up with the creator of Family Guy and American Dad, Seth McFarlane. Also, Ann Druyan, the widow of Carl Sagan and one of the original creators/producers of Cosmos back in the 80's, is back on board for the new series.

Cosmos is not a dry science documentary that you've seen before. The graphics, which look like something out of a big budget sci-fi flick, will have your eyes wanting more and the information will be so thrilling that you'll be craving scientific knowledge. From theories about the Big Bang Theory, to extra-terrestrial life, Cosmos has it all.

Well, I don't want to give too much away, but I'm sure you will take my advice and watch these science packed shows that are sure to have the right side of your brain working overtime!

    It's no secret that Microsoft has struggled in the hardware department so I can't say whether the Surface Pro 3 will be the hero Microsoft needs but I can say it is the modern computing experience users deserve. I love it and think you should too! Read on to find out why.
