“ Actually very entertaining (check your Netflix settings) .
“ I'd have enjoyed it more if it didn't sound like 2 or 3 voice actors played multiple roles and just slightly changed their voice for each one.
“ A few borrowed ideas from AI robot SciFi, but ultimately dull.
“ Would recommend to anyone who finds the concept of AI and their inevitable integration into our lives remotely intriguing.
“ Entertaining .
“ The weakest part of the series was the contrived escape that puts the bot on the streets and on an intercept course with Georgy Safronov and his family.
“ Its enjoyable .
“ The storyline is convoluted and depends on numerous chance meetings or brief misinterpreted observations that of course immediately send the storyline in unexpected directions.
“ The show is very entertaining, the acting is good for the most part.
“ Intriguing Cyberpunk .
“ Well worth a watch, lots of tense moments and unexpected outcomes.
“ I still haven't seen the shows that this is like/based on so can't compare, but I found it curiously absorbing especially once I selected subtitles rather than the bland dubbing.
“ However, for a show based on ultra modern tech, it felt formulaic and pedantic.
“ Superior Russian sci-fi with a compelling killer nanny .
“This is dull.
“ Definitely worth watching.
“ I expected it to be more "B" quality but it's a great and entertaining show.
“Every episode deals with an action packed list of violent events that throw the main characters into peril largely unnecessarily, and almost arbitrarily.
“Still, very enjoyable!
“ Compelling plot, high quality effects, and very good acting.
“ The very slow pace accentuated the flaws.
“ Very entertaining , good story, great acting .
“ Trite , predictable plot.
“ Entertaining enough .
“ Its too boring, more like a typical russian melodrama without any action or tension.
“ The main flaw of this series is that it starts very, very slow.
“ Plodding storyline.
“ I watched the whole series, so it was adequately entertaining.
“ It's worth watching regardless the voice probs.
“ Somewhat entertaining.
“ The story becomes increasingly complex and involved, you start rooting for certain characters and it's quite an enjoyable watch.
“ A TV Show worth watching .
“ The male cast has some very boring faces and the acting is only average.
“ Just dull and stupid .
“ You have a teen coming of age story.
“ Unique, intense and brilliant .
“ It is really entertaining.
“ They take for ever to set up the story and the dialogue moves at snail's pace.
“I watched all the episodes back to back and i enjoyed it.
“ Really good drama with a compelling story line.
“ Empty six-lane highways go nowhere under leaden skies.
“ The story is clever even though it relies on a lot of often used-on-TV problem or conflicted characters: Teenage angst, broken cop, corrupt cops, robot-trying-to-understand-humans, killer-robots, strong and very gun-happy bad guys, girl hacker, social-minded protesters gone too far, etc. But it works to keep the story from being boring and too keep you watching and waiting for the next episode.
“ The acting is good and the storyline is compelling.
“ I am blown away at how much better this Netflix original is over the US produced Another Life and Lost in Space sci-fi originals that lacked good scripts and compelling actors.
“ Surprisingly entertaining .
“ Very interesting and intriguing show.
“ Hugely entertaining, great plot, excellent acting.
“ Aside from that, Better Than Us takes a number of admittedly somewhat cliché characters (tough suspended cop with history, teenager in love, crazy mum who's lost a son, surgeon who's unfairly sued & persecuted etc.) and re-instills a good deal of credibility through an all-round talented cast.
“ The serie got a little slow mid-way and then really catched up.
“It did tend to start to feel stretched in the third quarter of episodes, but it finished in a rather compelling manner while offering speculation as to the perils of AI, automation and robots.
“ So unexpected in quality .
“ Enjoyable, to a point .
“ Really enjoyed it.
“ 30% clever, 15% brilliant, 55% incredibly contrived and stupid.
“ Enjoyable to the end .
“ Arisa, played with an engaging balance of subtly human facial expressions and smooth, deliberate robotic action by the inimitable Paulina Andreeva, is a mystery wrapped in an enigma.
“ At times the story seems a bit lazy and predictable.
“ Still there is something Intriguing about this series the maybe the different story.
“ It just popped up on Netflix and it looked intriguing.
“ Most boys will like this mindless trite show .
“ It's fascinating, and will keep you guessing enough to want more.
“ Very distracting to the point I found it unwatchable.
“ If you want to be bored in Russian, watch this snooze fest.
“ This is a highly entertaining and engrossing film, Well-written script.
“ Suspenseful, interesting story.
“ Enjoyable sci-fi .
“ Starts off well, then becomes utterly boring .
“ The storyline is intriguing.
“ Slow, poor script, visuals arent mind blowing.
“ Gripping human v robot futuristic series .
“ Enjoyable if you are not very demanding about the script .
“ Given that it's voiced over in English for me it's still gripping.
“ The self control of the actress playing Arisa is awe inspiring to watch, for example.
“ Boring .
“ Nothing happens after EP1
“ But perhaps the most engaging aspect of the show is its cunning misdirection.
“ After having dragged myself through the first two episodes of season one I concluded that that if you replaced the robot with an illegal immigrant then you probably would get the same story.
“ Actors are mostly solid as well; Paulina Andreyevna is impeccable as Ariasa and Olga Lomonosova as the torn ex-wiife of the main protoganist (Kirill Käro) has an especially compelling on-screen presence.
“ Netflix Dubbed in English Poorly - Unwatchable :( .
“ If you like long and slow drama shows this is one for you.
“ Starts off good but slowly turns in to a boring drama without action.
“ The surgeon's family unravels while Arisa bonds with his two children, displaying startling levels of human empathy and insight, a compelling killer nanny.
“ The story is solid and complete with humans good and bad trying their very best to come out on top in a violent game where Arisa, the empatic female robot, over and over again shows the unexpected powers of an evolving AI (the orginal title Lutche tchem lyudi - Better than humans, is not misleading).
“ Very enjoyable .
“ Netflix obviously Dubbed in English Poorly - Totally Unwatchable.
“ Very entertaining .
“ Ok but slow going .
“ All the episodes are very exciting , with a complicated story line.
“ There was so much double dealing, so many subplots, divided loyalties, etc. that it seemed pointless to watch the movie.
