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.

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.

The YouTube video Syfy’s Children Of Dune Is Epic! by the YouTube channel Quinn’s Ideas, here is the description for this video:

After the miniseries Based on Frank Herbert’s epic science fiction book dune set records for the Syfy channel, the network was eager to produce a sequel. In 2003 the channel aired a three-part mini-series combining the book’s Dune Messiah and Children of Dune. They titled the series Children of Dune. Children on Dune first aired on March 16, 2003, and was produced with a budget of twenty million dollars. Most of the original actors from the first miniseries reprised their roles in this one, including Alec Newman as Paul Atreides, Judy Cox as the Princess Irulan and Ian McNeice as the Baron Harkonnen. Saskia Reeves, who portrayed the lady Jessica in the first miniseries, was replaced by Alice Krige in this one. The Roles of Leto and Ghanima are portrayed in the series by James McAvoy and Jessica Brooks. This miniseries is the only attempt ever at adapting any books in the series other than the original Dune book, and I have to say, they did a pretty decent job considering the resources they had. In my opinion, this series is superior to the first. The first episode in the miniseries covers the book Dune Messiah, which takes place more than a decade after Dune. While the final two episodes cover the book Children of Dune, the series is 4 hours and 30 minutes in total.

The YouTube video The Syfy Version Of Dune Is Actually Pretty Good by the YouTube channel Quinn’s Ideas, here is the description for this video:

In December of the year 2000, the SyFy channel aired a new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Dune 2000 was actually the first mini-series that the Sci-Fi Channel had ever released and a whopping 20 million dollars was spent on 3 episodes, which were a pretty decent amount for a TV miniseries at the time. But this was still a pretty small budget considering that the David Lynch film when adjusting for inflation spent nearly 4 times as much. Regardless, Dune 2000 was a huge hit, doubling all viewership records for the network at the time and receiving an average of 4.4 million households over the course of the three nights in which the mini-series aired.
