I've heard people complain that the original Swedish show (Akta Manniskor?) is much, much better.
That's cause Akta Manniskor (Real Humans) is much, much better. They rushed 5 episodes of the original into the first episode of this remake! For instance, If you wanted to know more about how Annita came the be the hubot in the family's home, watching only the first episode of the original will tell you much more about it. The casting in the original was so much better. I also liked the way hubots looked in the original way more.
My only complaint is watching Katherine Parkinson playing a hard working mom after her silly role in The IT Crowd.
Yeah, had that to. Not really happy with the casting overall, but that was the biggest disappointment in casting for me !
We only had one episode of the remake, so maybe the forgotten storylines will be put back in by flashbacks or something. But my hopes aren't high.
I was disappointed with this remake. But we've been waiting forever for a season 3 of Akta Manniskor. I'm hoping this remake will raise fans for the original, so season 3 will finally air! (I have a theory they've waited so long with season 3 because of this remake)
Still, it pains me that they remake a show from 2013 while it hasn't even ended yet! Also, after watching so many english shows, watching a swedish show with a different background and people is refreshing. Why are people so lazy to read subtitles ?
