In 1790 Johan Gustav Dåådh joins the Stockholm police, in an attempt to change, or at least improve, the system from within. He is a modern thinker in an old hierarchy. Torn between alliances, he solves crimes among rich and poor.
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
So far, I have watched 7 episodes with a further 3 to come. What strikes me about this series is how accessible it is for non sci-fi buffs. It is about how robots can or would evolve within a human environment. With the self actuated robots, there are elements of Blade Runner, but as with most things about TV, this is a great canvas in which to explore plots and character development. I'm so looking forward to the final 3 episodes. This is sci-fi which is not too removed or unimaginable from our current time. It also explores how humans interact and use this technology from all sorts of angles. Looking forward to how the series further unfolds and hope that they don't make another series if they have nothing further to add to this current series. However, at the moment, I can't wait for the next episode.
