    Default Humans

    Is anyone watching this? It's based on the Swedish series Äkta människor (Real Humans).



    The first episode was on tonight and it started off brilliantly. I can't wait to see how it develops. I can't make up my mind whether I find the synths seriously creepy or if I feel sorry for them. Also it's great to see Colin Morgan back on TV.

    I've seen the original which was brilliant. If this is half as good I'll give it a try.

    I always feel irritated when people remake a great original. Why not just show the original & be done with it. Oh well. They've remade it & it does look good.

    Trailer for episode 2.

    In this case propably because a series in english will be watched by far more people internationally than a series in sweddish.
    I will watch it in a couple of hours.

    Humans’ Sets New Drama Record For C4; Sci-Fi Series Debuts On AMC June 28

    http://deadline.com/2015/06/humans-r...mc-1201442829/

    Humans, the eight-part sci-fi co-production from AMC and the UK’s Channel 4, debuted in Britain on Sunday night, setting a new record for the network. With 4M viewers and an 18.3% share, it became Channel 4’s biggest original drama series launch ever, and more than doubled the slot average — up 166% for volume and 183% for share. Twitter activity was sci-high for the show which kicked off at 9 PM local, and reviews have been largely positive — The Guardian is calling it “a clever, high-energy thriller”. U.S. viewers will get the chance to check it out beginning June 28 on AMC. (More at the link.)

    Oh this is an UK remake? Does this mean in a couple of years we'll see a US remake too?

    Great news!
    There seems to be a influx of European/Scandinavian shows either subbed,dubbed or remade in recent years.This one seems to be a hit,though I can't compare like for like because I've never seen the original.

    I loved part 1,and will rewatch it at least once before ep 2 via the On Demand feature.
    For me the premise is cool,and the casting's ideal.I've really enjoyed Gemma Chan's performances since Waters of Mars,and Jonathan Aris is one of my faves too,as are William Hurt and Colin Morgan.

    I didn't even know about it until I saw the AMC announcement on the front page of Gateworld, so watched it on catch up last night, dam good, instantly added the series to the recording schedule.

    Another great episode.

    Spoiler:
    I still think Anita is still creepy and scary, but Gemma Chan’s acting is so brilliant, that you could almost feel that she wants to be alive, that she has feelings and that she wants to be the same as her "family". It’s totally gripping. However, nurse Vera is just plain scary. I get the feeling that the outdated synth Odi is going to break my heart. Colin Morgan was excellent as always. But what is he? Is he part synth as well?

    BTW did any Blake's 7 fan notice that it was Steven Pacey (Del Tarrant) who was murdered in the synth brothel by Niska?

    Colin Morgan's character has to be either:

    Spoiler:
    the first synth to be given a soul, or the last, perhaps a human/synth hybrid. Odi is just adorable, he's like a 5 year old, just about old enough to be aware of his existence, but not old enough to have lost his child-like innocence.

    Vera needs to be taken outside and shot lol

    Excellent article. Thank you for posting it.

    Spoiler:


    Regarding Leo, I'm very curious to know what is going on there. I like the extra layer of mystery in addition to the stories of the synths.

    The premiere of Humans in USA had a 0.53 adult rating.A proof that science fiction can still have decent ratings if it is good

    I'm not sure how much promotion there was for Humans on AMC since I hadn't watched anything of theirs since Mad Men ended. I generally keep up with what's new and upcoming in genre TV, but I had not heard anything about it until it premiered on Channel 4 in the UK.

    In that case the 0.53 adult rating becomes even more important
