What is it?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this television show:
A suburban family buys the latest tech gadget–a robot servant–in this remake of a Swedish series.
In Season 1 of “HUMANS,” when Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) brings Anita — later known as Mia (Gemma Chan) — a robotic assistant known as a “Synth” into the family home, the repercussions change their lives forever.
As Toby (Theo Stevenson), Sophie (Pixie Davies) and Joe become enamored with Anita, Mattie (Lucy Careless) and Laura (Katherine Parkinson) realize something is amiss.
Meanwhile, Niska (Emily Berrington), a conscious synth, seeks help from her human brother Leo (Colin Morgan) after an incident places their unusual family in danger; and Pete (Neil Maskell), a police officer investigating Niska’s actions, is shocked when his partner Karen (Ruth Bradley) reveals her secret past.
Elsewhere, retired scientist George struggles to keep his aging synth Odi from being decommissioned; and Laura and Mattie assist Leo as he tries to uncover the truth behind his father’s work.
