Default Humans on AMC/Channel 4



Has anyone seen the ads for this? It's being promoted like hell in the UK just now and I'm seeing it everywhere. I believe it's based on the Swedish TV show Real Humans.

Starts June 14th on Channel 4 and June 28th on AMC.

If the reviews are good I'll check it out, previews are intriguing. Only 6-8 episodes so there's hope the story won't fall apart.

Watched the first episode from the Channel Four airing. Interesting so far. I hadn't looked at the cast so I was happy to see Colin Morgan. I'll definitely continue watching.

I'm tempted to watch again when it airs on AMC. I've only ever watched one Channel 4 show (Indian Summers) so I'm not sure if they change things like BBC shows sometimes do when they air in the US and when US shows air on BBC.

You should check out Channel 4 show Utopia. That show was awesome.

I'm leary of getting in to shows that I know have been canceled. Does it have a cliffhanger ending?

It doesn't have a cliffhanger ending although a couple plotlines were left open for if it came back for another season. Without going in spoiler territory, things sort of come full circle.

The two female "special" bots. Oh. My. Goodness.

The older daughter and mother are annoying me.

I'm rooting for the son to get ahold of that "adult" programming card his dad wisely tucked away.

Overall, I liked it.

Finally watched the first episode on AMC.

That was a good start. Will keep watching.

I think he implied that he is the creator's actual son.

Maybe he's partial? He does bleed what appears to be real blood. Unless he is an extremely disguised version by the creator himself...downloaded his real son into it, or something.

I started watching Humans on AMC over here in the US, so I went to check out the Swedish version it is based on. After 4 episodes of the US/UK one and about 6 of the original, I can honestly say the original Swedish version is much better so far. The only thing I like better in the US/UK version is William Hurt's character and the US/UK Anita (Gemma Chan) just a bit more. The original is much darker and adult with a lot of nudity, it also establishes the backstory of Leo and the free synths/hubots much clearer and quicker. Most importantly, the Swedish family is much more tolerable than the unlikable UK family, especially the mother and daughter. I normally don't do subtitles, but Swedish sees to translate over to English pretty well.

I've heard many people say the Swedish version is better. I will probably check out the Swedish original when I have the time.

I watched the pilot last night, and I like where this could be going. Hope it sticks around for a while.

Caught up this evening. Episode 5

Love how we have different characters telling stories from different perspectives.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Liked how Mattie defended the Synth from rape. I mean she wouldn't feel anything but it's still sick for those teens to rape an android.

The Anti-Synth rally is so something I could see happening if they were real

Ok the mom is starting to get on my nerves. Anita has been in the house long enough for her to stop freaking out about her every 5 minutes.
