Worth Watching: Humans on AMC
Once upon a time, there was a sci-fi movie by Steven Spielberg about a robot boy that was artificially intelligent. But like many mainstream sci fi films, the creators of that film shied away from science fiction no faster than it took to get the green light to actually make the film. A.I. ended up being a glossy plastic re-imagining of the story of Pinocchio. Which was too bad, because the themes behind the story’s macguffin had a lot of potential.
Fast-Forward a decade or so to a Swedish show called Real Humans, and it’s AMC/Channel 4 remake called Humans.
