TV Review: Humans (Series 2, Episode 1)
Share This Article:
Channel 4’s hit drama Humans has returned to make us question every human interaction we’ve ever had in our lives. Is that weird fresher actually a robot? Is that deadpan lecturer actually a robot? Was your last boyfriend actually a robot? Because if so that would explain a lot… Anyway, I’m sure the whole nation was as glad as me that the ‘previously on’ section was pretty thorough because, let’s be real, although we all lauded it as the best show ever last year, the end of the season was complicated and nobody remembers what happened. Basically the only important part was that Niska (Emily Berrington), a.k.a the blonde one, ran off with the code which has the power to wake up all the synths. Before uploading the code into the synth network, she attempts to experience human life by hanging around in grungy Berlin nightclubs, hooking up with a hot girl, and reading philosophy books. We all know someone like that, right? I’m trivialising, but it was actually pretty sweet. For the first time, we got to see Niska acting and interacting simply because she wanted to. It’s still clear that she’s a work in progress kind-of human, and Berrington does a solid job at convincing us that she's a robot pretending to be a person.
