  • Despite the game energy of its cast, Future Man is mostly routine homage, with very little substance shoring up its derivative foundations. Show More

  • In Future Man, it bounces amusingly along for a while and suddenly becomes weirdly sci-fi serious. In the third episode, “A Riphole in Time,” there’s a plot twist that makes you wonder what you signed up for.

  • Future Man is proudly puerile and in the early episodes, the lack of necessary grounding elements often make the broad jokes play as grating. Hutcherson, once treated by Hollywood as a heartthrob during the Hunger Games franchise, isn't an instantly successful choice for an Everyman lead and the push to judge Josh as pathetic reads as disingenuous and unsympathetic. As episodes progress, Hutcherson gets more comfortable and the character's lack of direction is better spelled out and the show improves around him. Show More
