Almost Human;Your first 'Almost Human' crazy theory: Karl Urban is actually a robot

Michael Ealy as the android cop in JJ Abrams' Fox series Almost Human
Fox's newest fall drama Almost Human finally premiered tonight, introducing viewers to J.J. Abrams' latest addition in his plan to single-handedly take over the entertainment world. Starring Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, and Minka Kelly, Almost Human is a series set thirty-five years in the future when humans in the Los Angeles Police Department are paired up with lifelike androids. (Think Robocop, but with a lot less armor, and a lot more heart.)
We're intrigued to know your thoughts on Abrams' newest venture into the sci-fi sanctum. Did Almost Human leave you in awe or was it just plan awful? That is the question we're asking you in our latest Save It or Sink It poll... 
Almost Human 
Almost a hit, or almost a miss?
The future doesn’t look good. The streets are awash in drugs and weapons supplied by an elusive but ruthlessly efficient criminal organisation with corporate ties. The crime rate has ballooned by 400%. The police are undermanned to the extent they need to turn to technology for help. Enter the advanced combat model android. That’s the set-up for Robocop, the 1987 Paul Verhoeven film whose widely un-anticipated reboot appears early next year. By an amazing coincidence, it’s also the foundation on which Almost Human, the new man-and-machine buddy cop TV series from JJ Abrams’ genre assembly line, is built.
