Trivia

The seven word activation phrase used to put new synths into setup mode [ep 1] is homage to the 2001 film A.I. in which a robot child is designed to love unconditionally and imprints onto whomever activates him with a seven word phrase. See more »

Tight storytelling, great plot, interesting characters, & exceptional acting
11 August 2017 | by brian-119-173475See all my reviews

I'll admit I sat on watching this for a while, I thought it would be boring but wow was I wrong, I love this show! It has a great plot, tight storytelling, interesting characters, and exceptional acting. Whats not to love!

Really appreciate the 8 episode seasons, it lets the writers tell a great story without having to add in filler to spread the story out to 10-13 episodes and it leaves you wanting more. Needless to say it's an easy binge.

If you haven't seen this series and you're a science fiction fan you really need to check this out. Like I mentioned earlier, I put off watching this show for a while. I thought it be boring and be more drama then syfy, that isn't the case.

I don't understand why it doesn't air in the US the same time as it airs in the UK? I think the US ratings would be much higher if it did.
