Could a robot develop the mind of a serial killer? Do androids dream? When something synthetic is self aware that it is learning what does that mean for me and you? How will society change when it is more convenient and more efficient to raise your child with a machine... Thats what this show is, lofty questions in a back drop of entertainment with a massive amount of great dialog and acting.

What a great story! Once again intellect wins out when it comes to storytelling and remembering character development is key. Even the ancillary characters are arcing!Whoever is directing the actors as robots as well has a great eye the " robot people " are all acted to the nines. I love this show.

It has been a while since I have written a review, but that is because I needed to find a show worth writing one for. Humans does that.

At first I thought it was just another android show, albeit with a very attractive central character and a slow British tone to it, but it really has surprised me. It asks some real questions - is it cheating to sleep with an android? What is the purpose of real relationship when you can get a robot to that the part, does exactly what you want and tick all the relationship boxes with no drawbacks.

I really am looking forward to where the writers take this. I hope it keeps pushing the bar on those questions, but leave the viewer to decide for themselves

SOOO GOOD! I thought the pilot was great and now that we are 5 episodes in my high rating still stands. This show has an interesting premise and Gemma Chan is so good at being a synth in the way she moves and speaks that she is a stand out so far.
I'll definitely check out the original Swedish version when this season ends, for a remake, they've done an excellent job.

What it means to be truly human is explored in this show about Synths or humanoid robots that serve humans. This show brings up many questions about whether humanity is earned, innate within us, or shaped by others and given to us.

Love the show and can't wait for season 2.

Off to a good start, the pilot episode of Humans introduced us to the protagonist family, their new synth, and an overlying story of a group of special synths and their human companion. It looks to be an interesting series, one I hope will stick around for long enough to reach a satisfying conclusion.

Normally i am not into robot shows. I find them predictable and a little old hat, Humans, though, has something that has got me hooked.Each episode I am running through the gauntlet of emotions and often find myself yelling at my computer screen demanding another episode.
If as a viewer you aren't into sci-fi or science gargin this is not the show for you. If you have a limited capacity to see past your own needs it isn't either as you will find it a little preachy on the subject of slavery, indentured servitude and sweat shop like treatment of the disadvantaged "robots"
But thats just my two cents.

This show is so good. It makes you want to keep watching to see what happens next and figure out the mystery of it.
