This sci-fi drama series written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley is based on the Swedish award-winning drama "Real Humans." The story is set in a parallel universe where technology is highly advanced and lifelike humanoids called Synths are the must-have machines for any household. Joe Hawkins decides to buy a Synth to help out at home, but his wife, Laura, feels uncomfortable around the humanoid. Elsewhere a widower tries to fix his malfunctioning Synth, Odi, who holds some precious memories of his late wife. The all-star cast includes William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Colin Morgan, Rebecca Front and Gemma Chan.
It’s one of the beauties of "Humans": it constantly throws up interesting questions about tech and the future that also resonate with the present and relate to humanity, ethics, politics, immigration even. (Synths are basically immigrants – they do all the shitty jobs and now people feel threatened by them.) In the first series, these were mainly questions about whether you would get one; and, if so, would you have sex with it; and, if so, and if you were also with someone else, to what extent would that be cheating on them (it gets more complicated with sentient synths, like Anita, with whom Joe had sex). Now, it’s getting more complex still, as sentience spreads. It is about procreation, morality, and rights...Human writing, I’m hoping, might hold out a little longer. "Humans" is certainly very humanly written – by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, both humans, I think. And it’s a very human show.--Sam Wollaston, The Guardian, October 31, 2016
