In this week’s Friday Screening, Spocksoc will be doing another new show: Almost Human. In 2048, the uncontrollable evolution of science and technology has caused crime rates to rise an astounding 400%. To combat this, the overwhelmed police force has implemented a new policy: every human police officer is paired up with a lifelike combat-model android. After waking from a 17 month coma, John Kennex is teamed up with one such android against his will, even as he is dealing with a prosthetic leg and memory loss. After he throws his android partner out of a moving van, Kennex is given an android named Dorian, an older model that suffers from its own emotions and insecurities.
As always, we will be meeting in Macaulay Theatre at 5pm and doing a pizza run at 7pm.
