Few companies could boast the number of different series that MTV did. There were the Teen Wolfs, Laguna Beach, Catfish and My Super Sweet 16, but that’s not what I want to talk about.


Future Man is an American comedy streaming television series created by Howard Overman, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir that premiered on November 14, 2017 on Hulu. The series follows an underachieving janitor who is called upon to save the world. It stars Josh Hutcherson, Eliza Coupe, Derek Wilson, Ed Begley Jr., Glenne Headly, Seth Rogen and Haley Joel Osment in recurring roles and is executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. A third and final season was released on April 3, 2020.

Having jumped back to 1969 with Wolf and Tiger, Josh realizes that it was his old boss in the future who developed the cure for all diseases that would eventually become the Biotics, and they try to get in to the party where Kronish would contract herpes, the diagnosis that would eventually prompt him to become a scientist. Meanwhile, a police officer named Skarsgard begins finding leads on Tiger and Wolf, who have already caused enough trouble around town, including beating up the bikers, threatening a mother, and breaking the fingers of a gas station employee. Josh's awkward attempts to prevent Kronish from contracting herpes edge on annoying. When the police come to apprehend the two characters, a biker gang who the store employee ordered to kill Wolf arrive and they and the police fight. After finishing their mission, the trio return to Pasadena in 2017, but realize that their plan didn't work and Kronish is still a scientist. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)


Josh Futterman is an unambitious janitor who lives with his parents and spends most of his time playing the video game "Biotic Wars". One night, after countless unsuccessful attempts, Josh beats the game's final level, and is labeled an in-game savior. While masturbating to a character in the game known as "Tiger", both Tiger and another character "Wolf" land in his room after time traveling. They explain to Josh that Biotic Wars was used to recruit their potential savior, and after a period of disbelief, they travel back in time to 1969, where Josh encounters younger versions of his family. They soon engage in a fight with a group of bikers, then steal their clothes to blend in to their surroundings. The team rides motorcycles they stole from the bikers to a gas station, where Wolf breaks an employee's fingers and Tiger threatens a mother with her infant. Soon, a gunshot set off by Josh causes a police car to arrive and be blown up, killing a cop.

Josh tells Tiger and Wolf that at the lab's upcoming party, which everyone must attend, so the Biotics will be there too, they will be serving Kronish balls, little chocolate treats. They decide to sneak in so Wolf can replace the normal balls with poisoned ones, with Tiger posing as Josh's date. However, when Josh talks to Kronish, the scientist reveals that the Kronish balls are off the menu this year. Later, Josh grows close to secretary Jeri Lang until Skarsgard arrive looking for Josh, but Lang covers for him. Meanwhile, Gabe teaches Wolf to cook and Diane gets Tiger ready for the party. At the party, Stu finds out about the balls and destroys them all, but is fired by Kronish. Wolf inspires the other cooks to make more balls, but unbeknownst to all, Skarsgard is at the party. Kronish begins a toast and Skarsgard finds Josh and Wolf serves the newly made balls, and everyone becomes sick except the Biotics, who fight the heroes. However, Lang is a Biotic too.
