Humans


Television


Has anyone else been watching this new science-fiction series? It's airing on Channel 4 and AMC.

It's about the emotional difficulties in a world where humans are interacting with human-like robots.

Even though a lot of the ideas it uses have been used plenty of times before, it's still quite good. I end up feeling really sad for (or angry at) the characters.

Katherine Parkinson and William Hurt are in it along with many other talented actors and actresses.

I think we're only getting eight episodes, so we're halfway through already, but I've been enjoying it so far.


I have and it's good overall. I love the way they are handling AI. I am not a big fan of the series of dysfunctional human relationships though.


The dysfunctional relationships do seem to be all over the place! So far no one in the series seems to be particularly happy with their lives, be they human or machine.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm totally diggin it so far. The only thing I don't like about it is knowing they're an episode or two ahead of us in the show's home country and a guy like me with some research skills is hard pressed not to go looking for spoilers to see what happens on episodes we don't get to see yet. How can I binge watch this awesome show if we're the last to get it?!?!

Can't wait to see whats next is both a shining endorsement of the show so far, but also a critique... More! More!


So far I like it.

This series would be a good candidate for binge watching. Each episode does seem to end in a really exciting place. Then the credits roll and I cry out at the TV. ^_^

I love watching Katherine Parkinson being in such a serious role. I really only saw her before in the IT Crowd when she was being silly!


Ah yes... I knew I knew her from something other than Sherlock... She's very good.


I encourage everyone to try and find the Swedish original called Äkta Människor (Real Humans).

Ok I found it... but should I get it or will it spoil the current show?

Also it only lasted 2 seasons, did you hear why?

I'm pretty sure the remake will have the same plot. And apparently, SVT had problems funding a third season.


A lot of the characters have the same names as in the previous version of the show, which I like... the story develops a little bit differently from the new version so its actually quite fun seeing both.
