Hulu’s ‘Future Man’ is a sometimes predictable but enjoyable trip back to the future

That the trio will be changed by their association is no more than screenwriting 101, but the characters are appealing and their story, through all its ridiculous twists and turns, genuinely involving; even when you know where it’s going, it’s a treat to get there. For all the mayhem that occurs along the way, the show is good-hearted and aspirational and steeped in family feeling. Wilson is especially good as a soldier getting in touch with his creative side. Ed Begley Jr. and the late Glenne Headly, lovely in one of her last roles, are sweet as Josh’s parents – loving, concerned, mildly eccentric, ready without question to embrace Josh’s strange new friends.
