Real Hu­mans

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Satur­day, 9.35pm, SBS One Two weeks ago, dur­ing episode three of this Swedish sci­ence fic­tion se­ries about an­droids, I fell in love with it. The loose ends be­gan to tidy them­selves up. And what looked at first like holes in the plot re­vealed them­selves to be frag­ments of a pleas­ing and com­plex struc­ture. It in­cludes a group of peo­ple who hate hubots so much they want them stamped out — com­pletely. But they have been in­fil­trated by a so­phis­ti­cated hubot who eats and drinks to prove her hu­man­ity, then heads to the bath­room where she re­moves what looks like a con­dom the length of a snake to purge her­self. We have a troupe of wild hubots on the run try­ing to gather strength and pur­pose in the at­tic of a les­bian vicar’s farm­house, a Blade Run­ner- es­que hubot black mar­ket; and a woman lawyer work­ing on the case of civil rights for hubots and those who love them. Count me in.
