SPOTLIGHT ON EXCITING NEW SF SHOW 'HUMANS' WITH TRAILER AND PHOTOS STARRING COLIN MORGAN, WILL TUDOR, GEMMA CHAN AND WILLIAM HURT!

'HUMANS' SF SERIES
WITH COLIN MORGAN, WILLIAM HURT, GEMMA CHAN,WILL TUDOR
Somebody commented last week on one of our posts saying that it seems we are going to have a sf summer, and it really seems we will especially considering the latest in the whole series of new science fiction shows that are coming to us this summer which we are spotlighting today - HUMANS, a co-production between British Channel 4 and American AMC. I'm definitely checking it out on June 14th in UK and June 28th when it premiers in USA, since it stars one of our most beloved TV stars, magical Colin Morgan (MERLIN, THE FALL) alongside another of our faves, dashing Will Tudor (GAME OF THRONES, RED TENT), and William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman Hill, Rebecca Front, Neil Maskell, and gorgeous Gemma Chan! The show has had a rather interesting marketing campaign over in UK where actual ads for robots were placed around the cities along with computer programmes which people could use to see what their own lookalike robot would look like.

WANNA BUY A SYNTH?
Based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama 'Real Humans', HUMANS will, through eight episodes, be set in a parallel present, where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart. In the hope of transforming the way they live, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences.

    2. Not feeling too well, is all. I was thinking SF series are usually Grace Anatomy in disguise.

  7. Look at our Colin looking scruffy and so grown up. This looks to be a very complex story with a lot of philosophy to grapple with. The cast is superb as well. Definitely going to be getting into this one.

    1. I wonder if it will have a multilayered message! And maybe a metaphorical parallel to our society and reality.
      We do positively adore Colin and we would marry him if he would but have us! The same goes for that blond god Will Tudor!

    2. I think it will explore the nature of relationships and attachments. How they form, how important they are and what happens when those things become unhealthy. It should prove to be one of those shows that sparks good conversation.

  9. Humans sounds interesting, for sure! I loved Black Mirror on Netflix--it was a British show with each episode showing how technology could change our lives. They're making a movie out of one of them with some big stars attached...sounds like they're going to "Hollywood" it down, so it'll just be a cheesy shell of it's former self, though.
