    Humans feels like that sort [The Twilight Zone] of instant and very humanistic classic. [22-28 Jun 2015, p.10]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    [A] compelling, smartly acted new co-production from AMC and Britain's Channel 4 that explores who we are and how fragile our own grip on humanity can be.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Emily L. Stephens

    In the first two episodes, Humans looks like a promising excursion into familiar territory, and one that plays well on several levels. It’s a domestic drama, a sci-fi thriller, and a meditation on alienation, all wrapped up in one sleek package.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mekeisha Madden Toby

    While a subplot involving a John Brown-type Synth liberator, Leo (“Merlin’s” Colin Morgan), is a heavy-handed distraction, Humans holds up as a slightly humorous, thought-provoking, creepy piece of sci-fi filled with sympathetic performances and solid writing.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Humans is a clever piece of work.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    The Synths start to act in unexpected ways, and several ominous developments warn us that artificial intelligence must be controlled and directed. What stays with us about Humans, though, are the reminders of all the little ways things will change once we hand part of our lives over to robots.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mark Dawidziak

    And yet, given how derivative it is, (say it with me now), Humans turns out far better than you'd think possible. The performances, pacing and direction are that compellingly good, at least in the first two episodes made available to critics.

    Cleveland Plain Dealer Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Humans, a British product based on a Swedish series, feels fresh nonetheless, thanks to a multiple-plotline approach, a deft cast and its refusal to be simplistic.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    The show is at its best when it digs into the psychological subtleties of the synth-human relationship, including the notion that, with their precision and regularity, they could render us inferior, helpless, and despairingly unambitious.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Bruce Miller

    While the past few TV seasons have had more than a few robot shows, this one bears watching, largely because it doesn’t insist there’s a “robots are good” or “robots are bad” way of thinking.

    Sioux City Journal Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    A charming, exciting, and impeccably written sci-fi drama for grown-ups.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    Like the dystopian British anthology Black Mirror, Humans is a sci-fi premise smartly reimagined for our own age of tech outsourcing.

    Time Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Humans finds a way to bring intrigue to a very familiar conflict.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Humans intelligently adds to this decades-long conversation [what it means to be human] with strong writing, interesting performances, and, most of all, an eerie, disconcerting tone that forces us to question exactly what we want to happen.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    A stylish, intelligent production.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    In a vacuum, the series is a solid, if not thrilling, piece of classic science fiction, exploring questions about the line between man and robot, whether computers can have souls, and whether mankind is destined to be rendered obsolete by the machines we're creating.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Chuck Barney

    It's familiar sci-fi territory, of course, but the show tackles it in intriguing style while delivering some suspenseful touches.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Humans does introduce some intriguing scenarios that may, or may not, pay off.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    For now, though, it's a familiar-looking drama that raises some less familiar questions about the things that makes us human--and the things that threaten to rob us of our humanity.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    This main narrative of Humans, which is based on a Swedish series and written by Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley, is solid if somewhat familiar; the truth and beauty of the series lies in the various B plots.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jeff Jensen

    Some beats are poignant.... But there's nothing here that Blade Runner; I, Robot; Black Mirror; and many more haven't done before and done better. [26 Jun 2015, p.56]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Todd VanDerWerff

    Most of Humans' characters are bores, and the story unfolds with the stately pacing of the typical cable drama.

    Vox.com Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Simultaneously juggling a quartet of plots is hardly unusual for the modern major drama, but Humans doesn’t wring much life (artificial or otherwise) from any of them. And while there are unexpected twists and mysteries that linger through the second hour, they’re not compelling enough to arouse much curiosity about where they might begin to intersect.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The scripts are adequate and many of the performances are effective. In spite of revisiting familiar territory, Humans could be more engaging if it had a greater sense of urgency. As it is, the show is, you should pardon the expression, just a tad too robotic.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Humans does have that pleasingly antiseptic feeling of euro-cool about it (think of how the Benedict Cumberbatch “Sherlock” series looks, or BBC America’s “Orphan Black”), which can sometimes lure viewers into the belief that they’re watching something classy and sophisticated, when really they’re just snacking on the TV equivalent of rice cakes.
