AMC’s Humans is a UK/US production which is a remake of a Swedish series named Real Humans. The series finally is tonight for US viewers, although the show finished up a couple of weeks ago on the UK’s Channel 4.

The series takes place basically in modern day, though a modern day that includes synthetic humans. These synths are used for menial tasks like house work,  driving, and other tasks that the humans do not want to do. Synths are not self-aware and do what they are told.

The twist, of course, is that some synths or different and self-aware.

The series (season) is 8 episodes and is pretty good on the story and very good on the performances. Definitely worth watching. The first series does resolve its story line, but also leave things open for future series.
