The first season of this British TV program about androids designed for robot-like service, a few of whom accidentally develop consciousness, aired in Britain two years ago. The second season has just started airing in the US on AMC. In between, HBO aired a big-budget series called Westworld which covered much of the same ground. This show is better. As is often the case, working with a lower budget forced Human’s developers to focus on character and plot instead of relying on special effects to build an audience. As a result, you have a wonderful collection of complex characters and interactions. Humans have a range of responses to the conscious androids (they’re not all perverts), and the androids have a variety of responses to various humans too. Best of all, the story follows a single timeline and all the action is presented as factual — a traditional method of storytelling which has become all too rare in an era of multiple timelines and unreliable narratives.
