Karl Urban on TV -- I'm There
"In a not-so-distant future, human cops and androids partner up to protect and serve." The ads didn't grab my interest. Although it did make me think that someone was updating Isaac Asimov's "Caves of Steel" about a robot-hating detective who was teamed up with (you guessed it) a human-looking robot to solve a murder.
Until Hannah pointed out the star is Karl Urban.
Eomer from Lord of the Rings?
Doctor McCoy from Star Trek?
Those are the movies where I noticed that chameleon, that darned good looking chameleon I might add.
He's just one of those guys who will make me watch something because he's in it.
Much the same way that seeing Andre Braugher got me to watch Brooklyn Nine Nine, which much to my relief came out of the starting blocks as a solid and smart comedy. I mean really. Andre Braugher. Of course, I was going to try it.
And now Karl Urban.
November 4, I'm there.
