Almost Human - Tia

This is like a fan girl dream come true for me. 

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time you know I am a sci-fi geek.

From Doctor Who to Star Wars (Episodes IV-VI ONLY!!! Those "prequels" could never see the light of day again for all I care.) I'm into it.

I'm also a huge fan of JJ Abrams' work. Though I've never fully forgiven him for the ending of Lost, he still holds a special place in my geek heart for Fringe, Super 8, Cloverfield, and Felicity. (That last one is random, I know, but Abrams produced, wrote for and directed on Felicity.) While that Lost thing will probably forever be a sore spot, his other projects essentially make up for it.  So any time I see his name attached to something I always get excited.

But the pièce de résistance of Almost Human was the cast. God GAWD!! Michael Ealy AND Karl Urban. Yes and AMEN!!

Michael Ealy is just going to stay fine. He's always been fine and he's always gonna be fine. We have talked about this man on numerous occasions. And we're not going to stop now. I was genuinely disappointed when Common Law went off the air. I liked that show. Who wouldn't like watching Michael Ealy every week? So of course I am on board with anything that gives me weekly access to his gorgeousness.

And then there's Karl Urban. Remember when I wrote this...9 years ago? (Wow, we have been blogging a long time.) Yep, I've been down for Karl for quite some time. While I did not love Doom, I've been a fan of pretty much everything else he's been in since he popped up on my radar. I really enjoyed him as Bones in the Star Trek reboot. I always like grumpy, surly characters. And I also enjoy his face, that jaw line and his awesome Kiwi accent...YES PLEASE!!!

This show is everything I believe in. Pretty guys, sci-fi, JJ. Yeah, it's hitting me in all of the right spots. Plus, it fills the gap that Fringe left. (I love you Walter Bishop.) So you know I'll be watching every week.

In case you need a little encouragement (although I'm not sure why you'd need it. Ealy and Urban, people, EALY and URBAN) here's the official trailer for your viewing pleasure. *sigh* They're so pretty.

Yeah, I have a Karl Urban fandom thread at my favorite internet hangout spot. I believe we've posted every picture of Urban existing in the universe. We know freckle placements, so being the huge nerd, sci-fi fanatic (and I'll never turn down a chance to stare into Ealy's eyes), I'm so there.

My love of Karl Urban def started with Lord of the Rings. I could see the hotness under that helmet. I also think he looks better in the new Star Trek film than he did in the last one. I wish they would give him some facial hair. Karl Urban w/ a goattee. No.Words.

Please please tell me you have or are going to see the new Star Trek, because Benedict Cumberbatch in this movie is the hotness!

Can't wait to see this new show. Hopefully it is good enough to stick around.

What Lei said. Truer words have never been spoken. Cumberbatch gained some muscle for the movie and those extra lbs. look good on him.

Oh, I'm sure I could find a picture of Urban with a goatee right here on my computer.
