  • Humans 1×08 Review: Episode 8

    After the action-packed information dump of last week, this week’s episode of Humans was a bit disappointing, especially because it was the season finale. As finales go, it felt rather lackluster and anti-climactic; more about setting up potential plotlines for season two rather than tying up existing plotlines of season one. The acting was spot-on, […]

  • Humans 1×07 Review: Episode 7

    This episode, you guys. THIS EPISODE. There was so much going on that I don’t even know where to begin, but then, this is the penultimate episode, so I would have expected nothing less. I’m so overwhelmed by everything that I don’t even know how much I’ll be able to get out coherently – a […]

  • Humans 1×06 Review: Episode 6

    Oh, what a tear jerker this episode turned out to be! You wouldn’t think a show like Humans would be able to pull on your heart strings so completely, but wow, this week’s episode gave me so many feelings. There was a lot of discussion about what makes a human, or what defines humanity, both […]

  • 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 […]

  • Humans 1×04 Review: Episode 4

    WARNING: This review discusses sexual assault and rape and could be triggering for some people. It’s getting harder and harder to keep these reviews brief. There is just so much to talk about with this show. After the pilot episode aired, I spent much of my review delving into the moral quandaries raised by the […]

  • Humans 1×03 Review: Episode 3

    The nice thing about short seasons is that there is much less filler, and every episode advances the story in some way. Last week, I mentioned that all of the plots on Humans are seemingly interconnected. This week, it’s clear that they are. Whereas before, there were very thin threads connecting all of our main […]

  • Humans 1×02 Review: Episode 2

    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 […]
