almost human flopped because Fox mismanages all there good sci fi/geeky shows.
Lethal Weapon gets a pass for me. I actually enjoy it. im a diehard (no pun intended) action movie guy and I think they are off to a good start. that being said any show I like on fox gets cancelled two seasons in.
You said it best man: "It's fun to watch." I can sit down with my wife and have a good time. Don't have to worry about too much drama or an ultra-violent character kill.
It's also fun for me, because I grew up with the film series, and my wife did not. When homages are being paid in the TV series to the movies, I can tell her, "Okay, it happened this way in the movies, but I like the direction they took it for the show."
