  • Humans 1×05 Review: Episode 5

    Storylines are colliding all over the place on this week’s episode of Humans. With Leo, Mattie, and Anita/Mia all in one place and Niska seeking refuge at George’s house, most of our major players have crossed path with each other. The overall plot arc is advancing, albeit slowly. We are now more than half of […]

  • “Paper Towns” Makes a Point…And Misses the Point

    Warning: may contain spoilers for the book/movie. After an epic (a word that has been used so often lately so as to have lost all meaning) night helping Margo (Cara Delevingne) take revenge on all of the people who have wronged her, Q (Nat Wolff) thinks their relationship will shift from friends to more than that.

    Last week I talked about the ethical questions raised by the universe Humans presents, where synthetic humans exist in largely serving capacities, so this week we can dive right into the various plots. Each seemingly interconnected plotline shows the various ways that people in this parallel reality deal with the synths in their lives. Some […]

  • Humans 1×01 Review: Episode 1

    What does it mean to be human? What makes us human? Is it something that we understand well enough to recreate? Humans deals with that very question. In an alternate world where synthetic humans are commonplace, we are treated to very separate outlooks on the morality and necessity of artificial intelligence. The episode opens with Joe […]
