Channel 4’s biggest hit in over a decade, Humans is a new sci-fi dystopian drama that’s more human than ever. In the not-so-distant future, the new hot tech to have is a humanoid robot (called a synth in the show) to serve as a caregiver, housekeeper, and gopher—a TaskRabbit IRL. However, as history dictates, conscious beings tend to evolve, and as the show will have it, the robots start to exhibit sentient and human emotions and desire equal rights and treatment to humans. Sure it kind of sounds like the plot of iRobot, but it’s so much more! Where Humans excel is exploring the relationships between machine and human, and how the line blurs between machine and human as the synths adapt human characteristics.
Part iRobot, part Hunger Games, part Planet of the Apes—Humans has it all. Get lost in the dystopian future and the challenge and drama the people face coexisting with increasingly conscientious and evolving class of a completely new (and dare we say, superior?) species—the synths. If you were scared of AI already, this show will definitely give you the heebie jeebies!
