Nearly Every Scene Is A Spoof
15 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Whether it's a line in the dialogue, or the scene itself, nearly everything that happens in Future Man is a spoof of some sort. The references are all across the board, from Easy Rider to Midnight Cowboy to Terminator to Back To The Future to Top Gun and on and on, each scene in this show is either a spoof or homage to famous TV shows and/or Films of yesteryear, especially isolated when the characters time travel to a particular year.

How they go from scene to scene or situation to situation seems a bit forced throughout the series, as the pop culture references seem to be the most important element in the writing of the show, is sometimes forced and ham handed, but make no mistake about it, this show is all about spoofing pop culture first and foremost.

Once you understand this mechanic of the story-telling, the rest just falls into place.

Sometimes the references are laugh out loud funny, other times they simply make your eyes roll.

One thing is for sure about this show, don't take any of it seriously and please ignore the many plot holes in it.
