Future Man has a pretty great pedigree behind it. In addition to Seth Rogen executive producing and guest starring, as well as Josh Hutcherson leading, there is a ton of fantastic talent involved. Most notably, the first season surrounds the poor life choices of a scientist named Doctor Elias Kronish, played by none other than legendary sci-fi and voice actor Keith David (They Live, Gargoyles). Meanwhile, the actors playing Josh’s parents are none other than Ed Begley Jr. (The Accidental Tourist, Best in Show) and the late, great Glenne Headly (who famously out hustles the hustlers in the Frank Oz classic Dirty Rotten Scoundrels).
Without giving too much of the story away, Future Man cribs from more than just The Terminator and The Last Starfighter. Very notably, it also borrows from Back to the Future, what with our heroes traveling backwards in time, even making some direct references to the Michael J. Fox classic. Of course, in this case, they attempt to repair a mistake which will inevitably cause the end of the world with hilarious (and terrible) results.
Future Man wrapped up its run of three seasons on Hulu in 2020. It is a half-hour comedy, making it very easy to binge-watch. So if you’re looking for the sort of time hijinks story Seth Rogen would make, well, Future Man is probably the show for you.
