    Mediocre series with crappy acting, plot is slightly different than the usual but too reliant on same old concerns of synths taking over the world etc, etc.

    Just wish they had executed the script more interestingly, there are so many angles and interesting places this could have explored, but it is just too bland and obvious and why is it set in modern day, this sort of technology isn't

    Lots of holes in the storyline - the Average life of a synth is supposedly 4 to 5 years as portrayed in the series but the cost to buy one of these would be more than any average family could afford. Even after many years of production the cost would be huge and an average family is not going to buy something that costs the same as a small house if it only lasts 5 years.

    The only way to like this show is if you already have a penchant for Eastenders and Corrie, if thats the case you probably havent heard the story of Androids becoming self aware. If you have you are in for one massive disappointment. Theres not much special FX to keep you interested either, its hammy acting by a cast that wouldnt get work on Neighbours never mind the UK soaps, theThe only way to like this show is if you already have a penchant for Eastenders and Corrie, if thats the case you probably havent heard the story of Androids becoming self aware.

    If they really spent the millions they say they did on this show, then you are reading a review by a two tailed, one eyed cat.

    While a subplot involving a John Brown-type Synth liberator, Leo (“Merlin’s” Colin Morgan), is a heavy-handed distraction, Humans holds up as a slightly humorous, thought-provoking, creepy piece of sci-fi filled with sympathetic performances and solid writing.

    Humans is a clever piece of work.

    The Synths start to act in unexpected ways, and several ominous developments warn us that artificial intelligence must be controlled and directed. What stays with us about Humans, though, are the reminders of all the little ways things will change once we hand part of our lives over to robots.
