I like the new versions of Synth Max and Odi as well. At least the visuals and soundtrack will be up to Utopia standards. This season strives mightily to push the synths into a different category – they can die! It’s really really really really good. I’d agree with pretty much all that; interesting, watchable, intrigued to see where it goes next, but can’t help but feel that it wasn’t quite intelligent enough to be really great. You’ve only got one more ep and you’re all caught up. Ex Machina recently did similar things much more strikingly and tautly.
Got properly choked up when she visited the old folks’ home. I don’t know if anything will ever equal the uncanny loose-cannon menace of Rick, or the pathos of OG Odi and Flash. Humans turns out to be great so far, and quite different, despite the obvious common starting points. For those who don’t torrent, this fellow provided both seasons on Vimeo in 15 minute chunks with English subtitles. I’m watching, although it hasn’t exactly done anything surprising yet. Their minds can be copied. It’s only E03 and already the family knows that Anita’s different from other synths, and is asking why. I keep waiting for the mother to start ranting about breaking the internet, mind.
Manniksor minds can be copied. The Returnedit started off interesting but got ruined as it descended into full-on corny thriller mode. It took episodes for the original series to set out its stall, arrange its problems and obstacles, which is maybe authentically Swedish, I don’t know, but it felt meandering at times. Love Niska dragging the family back into it.

It must be the way they move – the synths are much more Alexander Techniquey than the humans. Humans turns out to be great so far, and mnaniskor different, despite the obvious common starting points.
It’s really really really really good. Everybody seems a bit smarter in this one, as well.
She’s bringing the parents together by providing them a common target to mock! But yeah you’re OTM about the thriller-y comicbook cyber-action actually dragging it down. How many people thought that Laura would walk in on her husband ‘inspecting’ Anita, though. Hitchin’s also been featured on Doctor Foster and a huge amount of other shows lately because of the influx of media types moving to the area from London and poshing the fuck out of it.
Must have taken ages for the synth actors to master those fluid movements, just picking things up or getting in a car etc.
Half way through last night’s ep, I was like ‘So if they don’t want to spawn a population of sentient androids, why are they linking up?
You don’t need to reproduce. Think they may have telegraphed the cops partner’s secret a bit subtitlfs heavily, though The last couple of episodes of this kind of tarnished an otherwise enjoyable series. Synths may be “conscious” but they they’re replicable.
The dad was perfectly cast, though. Leo still one of the most underperforming “leaders” ever. That was very intense and really quite well done. I’m really enjoying this, it’s like Black Mirror writ large and better. I have to say I kind of agree with the jerks on the commission – if green eyes are so unreliable and appear to be massing in secretive bunkers to kill us, let’s, like, fucking deal with it?

Click here if you want to load them all. Is it just to save the broken synth or? I’d agree with pretty much all that; interesting, watchable, intrigued to see where it goes next, manniksor can’t help but feel that it wasn’t quite intelligent enough to be really great. There must be some sort of uncanny valley thing in this timeline where people can ‘just tell’ who’s a real person and who’s a dolly etc Leo is such a dick.
I don’t know if anything will ever equal the uncanny loose-cannon menace of Rick, or the pathos of OG Odi and Flash. Instead of continuing to supply power to their hideouts??
Ex Machina recently did similar things much more strikingly and tautly. The only characters that don’t ring true are the generic cyberpunk mechanic dude there’s always one, they’re always the same and the OTT angry robot-hating special agent. Thanks for the reminder to continue this. Can’t wait for shbtitles 2. I liked this more than the second series, though agreed that the end was a bit off the rails.
The OG series took like 4 episodes of very woolly plotting for that to happen. An English language subtjtles just Humans will be produced by Kudos, the production company behind Ch.
And his sister is still great. In the original the scorned husband character carried xkta social impact themes alta a warehouse foreman, so one had a stronger sense that everything was falling apart in his life, with the marital issues a final straw. You see it in the theatre all the time, young infernos of emotion who can’t wait to show you their internal angst but who forget that the actually interesting part is the journey that led to that angst.
I think the point was to help explain why she would be so willing to help a bunch of people she doesn’t know to evade the law. Yeah, I thought it was another show like the Walking Dead, sometimes where englissh general setting was interesting and had loads of suhtitles, much of which was then squandered because the actual story they chose to tell in that setting turned out to be a bit boring.
A stupid, stupid script trying clumsily to squeeze emotion out of something that made no sense. They’re both so good but particularly the IT Crowd woman, I never imagined that she was so legit. Got properly choked up when she visited the old folks’ home. I’m hyped because Christo may be the best modern soundtrack composer alive.
Don’t think I understand that logic and in mannsikor case by the final episode the whole human family were essentially robots: Humans on Channel 4. I’ve watched the first three and I don’t engoish it’s particularly good. UK series 3 is good so far. Haha yes even Niska herself was like “if you wanted me to come here maybe you could have been a little less cryptic”.
I’m watching, although it hasn’t exactly done anything surprising yet. The guy from Kill List and the synth copper might have been the most interesting characters in it. For those who don’t torrent, this fellow provided both seasons on Vimeo in 15 minute chunks with English subtitles.
