For all its sci-fi and speculative dimensions, Humans is both a first-rate thriller and a moral education. It makes you think. It makes you think about how easily you can be replaced.

Humans... is a less ambitious production than Westworld. But its more pedestrian nature - it's domestic drama merged with a sci-fi thriller - also makes it more emotionally effective.

Humans is a bloodless series, one that seems informed but not engaged.

Forget Westworld. Humans is the most compelling, emotionally resonant robot-centric show on television.
