Future Man



A janitor, Josh Futturman, successfully completes his favorite video game (that was considered unbeatable), Biotic Wars, when suddenly the game's two main characters, Tiger and Wolf, appear and recruit Josh to save the world from the real Biotic Wars. Josh and his companions travel through time to change the future.




Future Man



A janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night is tasked with preventing the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.


Future Man is still full of clever jokes that revolve around how far the future has come and the ridiculous ideas and sciences that have become the norm. These are nicely paired together with some amazing sight gags. Time paradoxes get played around with in smart and visually stunning ways. This season also contains some extremely trippy concepts that lean hard into the science fiction angle of the show and reaffirm that this is one of the most creative comedies on television.


Season 1 was a wild ride for Wolf, who found happiness in everything from cooking to cocaine. Now, in Season 2, he has a new passion. "He goes to a different place this season," executive producer Kyle Hunter said. "He becomes a family man and explores fatherhood for the first time, because they jump back to a time when different versions of Tiger and Wolf exist, and he sort of slips into his doppelganger's place and joins a family of six parents to one child, which is how they do it in our future. It takes a village to raise a child."


I am officially on record as complaining that television relies on time travel just a tad heavily. But then along comes Future Man, in which a mild-mannered and generally witless janitor has been selected by some tough bastards from the future to interrupt a sexual act in 1969 (and yeah, "sexual act" and "1969" are a smirky non-coincidence), which, if performed, will a couple of hundred years later plunge the world into fascism.


But when an apparently dumb strategy unlocks the game's final level, two of its characters pop out with disconcerting news: The cartridge was really a training and recruitment device to locate the man who could save the future from its enemies. Even if his job is sweeping the floor at a herpes pharmaceutical research facility where the activity seems mainly to consist of jamming cotton swab up the urethras of infected lab animals.


Impressively enough, the pitiable janitor and gamer we met at the beginning of the show grew into a genuine Savior after all. He rose to the occasion and was proud of his actions. Good for you Josh, but there might be something more interesting in store for the future of Future Man.


Future Man, produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and created by Kyle Hunter, Howard Overman and Ariel Shaffir, follows Hutcherson's character Josh Futterman, a gamer slash janitor who gets recruited by Tiger and Wolf, two characters from a game Josh plays, to save humanity from extinction. Over the course of the series, Josh, Tiger and Wolf have gone back and forth through the past, present and future. While Hutcherson won't give away too many details about exactly how they will save humanity, he does admit it's his favorite season.


You're really learning a lot about problems of the world and future worlds that could exist if we don't do things differently now and what can happen. I think our show has set itself apart because it's so weird. We leaned into the weird from day one. I think finding that kind of odd voice for the show took some time. Our whole writing team, and Seth and Evan being as involved as they were, I think we found this really interesting lane that hadn't been explored, which is mixing very raunchy, like dick joke humor, with time travel and saving the universe.


Society is getting more and more queer. As LGBTQ rights are slowly progressing around the world and more and more people are comfortable being their authentic selves, it's exciting to imagine a future where no one cares about labels and just lives and loves freely.


For those who haven't seen Season 1 of the Seth Rogen produced comedy, Josh Hutcherson plays Josh Futturman, a janitor who lives at home with his parents and is obsessed with beating an unwinnable video game called Biotic Wars. When he finally defeats the game, Tiger and Wolf, Biotic Wars' two main characters, time-travel into his room and deem him their savior, the chosen one destined to help them defeat the real-life peril that's taken hold of the distant future.


Our heroes endure a series of time-traveling, dick-swapping, baby-killing hijinks in an attempt to prevent the apocalypse from ever coming to be. Without giving too much away, Season 2 brings Josh, Tiger, and Wolf back to a dramatically altered future; 2142 isn't the same reality that Tiger and Wolf left.


Years later, in a recounting done by the android Torch in the modern age, he somewhat snarkily alluded to the fundamental flaw in the duo's plan, being the possible erasure of the ancestors of the people fleeing the grim future. Even given alternate timelines, this approach was reckless in the extreme.


I'm trying to think of a succinct way of describing the plot of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's new TV show, Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, and this is all I've got: Hutcherson is a janitor at a lab and ends up traveling back in time with two warriors from the future (who are also somehow in a video game he plays?) to stop his boss at the lab from ever getting herpes. Because the herpes cure his boss eventually discovers goes on to destroy mankind. Mmhmm.


Josh Futturman feels stuck in his dead-end job as a janitor so all he really does is play Biotic Wars, an unbeatable videogame the rest of the world has given up on. But when Josh beats the game, two of its main characters, Tiger and Wolf, appear from the future proclaiming Josh as the key to defeating an imminent super-race invasion. Josh must travel through time with Wolf and Tiger in order to prevent the extinction of humanity. 041b061a72
