Is 'Almost Human' a Hit? The Reviews Are In

Sunday nights are generally a pretty busy night for television, so whenever a new series is introduced into the mix, it's important to figure out whether or not it's even worth a watch early on, so you don't waste three Sundays of your life "giving it a shot" when you could just be watching The Walking Dead. Take last night, for example: Almost Human , the new series from J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot and Fringe creator J.H. Wyman, premiered on Fox.

With Wyman at the helm, Abrams involved, a cast that includes Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, and a plot that's set in the near future involving LAPD officers being paired with lifelike robot partners, the whole thing seems promising... but how was it, really? Overall, the reviews seem mixed, but it doesn't look like all is lost for this show. Here's a round-up of what the Internet's top TV critics are saying about the series:

The second part of the premiere airs Monday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
