Who wouldn't want to have their partner upgraded?
Remember Rick's 'special' upgrade in the last episode? I think he will surely get caught for 'speeding'.
Roger's ex, Therese, ends up with extreme bed hair in the opening scene. You may remember that Rick got his 'good in bed' upgrade and we get to see the results in graphic clarity. SBS On Demand did load correctly as usual and no, my browser definitely did not speed up any of that real time action. It was only the TV news revelation that a similar model to Rick has been getting up to some suspected evil action that takes some of that smirk off Therese's face, but only momentarily.
I would like to extend my congratulations to actor Johannes Kuhnke, who will surely have guaranteed work for the next 200 years.
The search for wild, autonomous HUBOTs continues as a murder investigation goes on in the background of this series which will no doubt come to the fore soon.
It seems with HUBOTs as the new reference point, humans are looking increasingly unintelligent.
Malte, Roger and Bea, however, are supposedly three humans who were going to change the world order yet again as their distain for HUBOTs grows. Did anyone realise the truth about Bea before it was revealed? They meet this week to discuss some dastardly plans as Malte's wish for some of that extreme HUBOT action fall flat. Although to be kind, he really didn't realise what he was asking for.
Jonas Malmsjo as Luther carries off a henchman persona with the body and style of a 1970s rock god. He's the HUBOT you call when you want the job done.
The sweet show stealer this episode for me was by far, Inger's daughter Matilda as she stood up to her mother about resuming school. A small scene but very well acted by Natalie Minnevik. I can see why Matilda would be rebellious given her whole life is Ikea'd within an inch of its, well, life. She later starts delving into Anita's past, with some interesting findings.
Matilda quizzes Anita about her inability to feel emotions then attempts to find out more about her past experiences.
