This soon to be cult classic never fails
I knew it. Bea and Roger are very cosy and are working well as a team. They are the odd couple and of course, the most unlikely to form such a strong bond. Malte has a breakdown and Bea and Roger handle it like an old married couple.

The HUBOT market bombing is still making headlines.

Bea knows no means no and Roger puts his life at risk from all the HUBOTs


Inger gets in hot water for her part as a potential HUBOT activist as opposed to what the firm's expectations are of her as a lawyer.
Her boss may shock but it's heartwarming to see a human lawyer with a heart in the same room as another human lawyer with a heart. I think they have a very unique workplace given the amount of HUBOTs in the world.

Threatening to go to the media may just be putting Inger's life at risk also. Her boss is rather sweet and intelligent.


Bea's sad past is explored further along with her relationship with the wild HUBOTs 'liberator', David. Think Frankenstein meets Pet Sematary and you can understand the challenges of weaving this into a totally believable trans-human drama.

Bea's attempts to advise Niska meet with suspicion regarding her relationship with Roger

Sorry Niska but that is Roger's house. Golly: so confident for a HUBOT


Switching Rick off for the big girls night out lands him in RE-HUB, as his programming throws a huge wobbly.

Dear Rick, your masculine appeal is that you can be turned off when you cause Therese any drama.

And..Therese pops that switch.

The ladies literally do a runner for their big night out minus their HUBOTs.

Therese will think twice about that control-alt-delete move next time.


Tobbe once again was the star of this episode as his father tries to assist in his need to divert his love for Anita. This causes quite a bit of embarrassment for the lad and Anita is so adorable; she is just too difficult to resist.

Dad helps Tobbe be safe with his new girlfriend.


Another great episode with each moment adding to a previous revelation. Thanks SBS.

I am hook to the so intriguing series! It is amazing how the Hubots and humans as depicted : I sure wouldn't like to our civilization to come to that point, nevertheless amazing to see the imagination to create this show!.

The series is moving as it goes slow paced to the daily human routine ordinary and hubots go side by side causing us anxiety, laughter, tears, sadness - we humans are so predictable!!! I love it - only one complaint - SBS leaves the episode online to be viewed just for a week! Well when I started telling friends to about the series it was already too advanced to connect to it ( it is not easy to explain as it is based on emotions more than anything) and there is not way to get to see the older episodes.

If you have the chance to view buy it on the ABC shops, it sure worth it, when it comes out I'll for sure. Two thumbs up!
