Once in a while there is a series that Stand out so once in a while I will review TV series . In a parallel present the artificial human has come into its own. Robots no longer have anything robot-like about them. New technology and advancements in the field of science have made it possible to manufacture a product – a kind of mechanized servant – that is so similar to a real human that it can often be considered a perfectly good substitute. The Human Robot (HUBOT) have also given rise to new problems and dilemmas. Thorny legal questions have increasingly started to occupy people’s minds and are still waiting to be answered: Who is responsible for the actions of a hubot? Do hubots have some form of “hubot rights”? Should they be paid for their work? As an ever growing number of people form relationships with hubots, the boundaries between human and machine become blurred. When humans make copies of themselves, which are so close to the real thing they form emotional bonds, the questions arises – What does it really mean to be ‘human’?
I am in France Now and this series is from Sweden a very good one by the way. This is a daring and dramatic fiction which examines the many societal, legal and human implications of living with human robots called Hubots. Significantly, this multi-layered story intelligently examines robot issues that Hollywood generally avoids like the plague: Hubot sexuality, Hubot pornography, Hubot rights, Hubot sex slaves, illegal trafficking in Hubots, Hubot freedom fighters, humanity’s backlash, murder of humans by Hubots, and more. Take a look at those film The Stepford Wives (1975), Blade Runner (1982), Alien (1979), I,Robot (2004) and others, however the real humans TV series is a fresh New look, and you have to keep up the the different New twist each week. This one is great and daring not for kids however. For adult only.
