Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the world’s best video game player is recruited to fight in a battle to save the planet. That’s the plot of an increasing number of movies including The Last Starfighter, but now it’s also the plot of a new Hulu series called Future Man that hails from producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. But this show isn’t just a direct copy of The Last Starfighter: it also pays homage to Back to the Future, Top Gun, and lots of other ’80s classics while doing its own thing along the way.
The first reviews have hit the web, so gather around to read the Future Man early buzz before the show officially premieres later this month.
