TELEVISION • OK, the premise of "Almost Human" doesn't sound all that promising — three decades in the future, a cop (Karl Urban) and his robot partner (Michael Ealy) battle bad guys. But this is actually a very promising series that's not what you might expect. The biggest twist is that the cop is very robotic and the robot is very human.

When • Sunday, 7 p.m.

Channel • Fox/Ch. 13
