With Earth rapidly becoming uninhabitable, pioneers seek to colonize the harsh terrain of the planet Carpathia. 10 years later, the town of Forthaven faces danger as the planet's dark secrets are revealed.
When a body is found on the bridge between Denmark and Sweden, right on the border, Danish inspector Martin Rohde and Swedish Saga Norén have to share jurisdiction and work together to find the killer.
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'? Written by
Okay, the first half of the season was GREAT. It was entertaining, it posed very interesting questions that all could be summarized into one "If Hubots (Humanoid Robots) existed, how far would be too far?" Now let me clarify my position on the second half. It was still entertaining but I felt it lost focus. We got this story that bled into one about this government...I don't know WHAT his job was, trying to track down a code that made Hubots have souls...that is as cheesy as it sounds HOWEVER they do somehow hold together the show's dignity.
Now I love the fact that this is a change of pace from the shows I usually watch but I also sincerely hope that the second season keeps going along in this trend. For what it is however, I still enjoy the entire show's run but I still prefer the first half over the second.
