8. 'Almost Human' (2013 - 2014)
This insanely expensive -- and ratings-challenged show -- came and went a beat or two before Netflix and Hulu got in the business of saving series from network cancellation. Had it aired a year later, or lasted one more season and still been cancelled, maybe a streamer would have picked up this uneven but largely entertaining sci-fi procedural about a human cop (Karl Urban) partnered with the most attractive android ever made (Michael Ealy.)
Despite a conspiracy/mythology runner surrounding a tragedy in Urban's past that didn't quite shake hands with the show's overall action-y tone, "Almost Human" delivered an impressive visual presentation bolstered by the effortless chemistry of its two leads.
