The British/American drama “Humans” takes place in present time, but in a parallel world. In this setting, the new “must have” item for families that are prosperous and on the go is called a Synth. A Synth is a robotic servant. The twist is that the Synths are so close to human beings that it transforms every day life and makes people question…what exactly makes us human and is this advanced technology really a good thing?
In the “Humans Season 3″ DVD, one year after synths around the globe gained consciousness, human distrust of synths is at an all-time high, and both populations struggle to cope with the fallout. Human lawyer Laura (Katherine Parkinson, “The IT Crowd”) fights for synth rights at a high-profile government commission, while Mia (Gemma Chan, Crazy Rich Asians) and Max (Ivanno Jeremiah, “Black Mirror”) run a settlement for sentient synths. But Max is torn between his new role as leader and helping his friend, human-synth hybrid Leo (Colin Morgan, “The Fall”). When a bomb blast at a synth-friendly bar inflames already high tensions, Niska (Emily Berrington, “24: Live Another Day”) searches for the perpetrator, and what she finds will have monumental consequences for humans and synths alike.
Heralded as “the ultimate A.I. thought experiment” (The Atlantic), Humans blends cinematic action with piercing social commentary. “Involving, well written, and well played” (The New York Times), the series also stars Mark Bonnar (Shetland, Catastrophe), Tom Goodman-Hill (Mr. Selfridge), Ukweli Roach (Blindspot), and Sam Palladio (Nashville).
