Trivia: Almost Human
  • Actor Allusion:
    • In the fourth episode. "Three-point-six milliliters of the Bends. That's 18-24 in the cubes, pal." There's another Dredd allusion in "Disrupt", when John claims that he's going to send a hacker "to the cubes". Allegedly this was a Throw It In by Karl Urban (who had just wrapped filming on Dredd) that sounded futuristic enough that it became part of the show's lexicon.
  • Fan Community Nicknames: Numerous types continue to float around, such as Humanites and Humaniacs which were coined during the series promotion in May 2013. After the series first pilot airing it deviated into FanBots and Badge Rabbits/Bunnies. The names are still up in the air.
    • Humanite is viewed as the proper or fancy term.
    • FanBot is the colloquial and slang term.
  • Fan Nickname: The DRN 494 from Episode 6 was quickly dubbed with a 'D' name of his own, "Darren".
  • Hey, It's That Guy!
    • Doctor McCoy is a detective, not a synthetic.
      • Alternately, Judge Dredd is enforcing the law in a less crapsack but still crime-ridden futuristic world. One that calls its prisons "cubes", to boot...
    • Rudy used to be a pirate!
    • Deputy Andy is a state prosecutor.
    • Captain David Acevada is another police Captain, and was also the US President on The Unit.
    • Also, Detective Paul is Charles Gray from The Unit as well.
    • Anna Moore and Dorian have met before in another life, in Common Law.
      • In addition to this, Paul was Dorian's foster brother in the same show.
  • Portmanteau Series Nickname: "Almost Human" -> "AlHu"
  • Screwed by the Network: Fox did this by dumping originals against The Olympics. After having previously pulled the show for two weeks to do two-hour episodes of Sleepy Hollow and The Following. Not to mention that it didn't get picked up past the original thirteen episode order. And all this despite the fact that the ratings were actually decent by Fox standards. Oh, and they aired it completely Out of Order. Yup, it's Fox all right.
  • The Wiki Rule: Over here.
