“Sticky big-picture questions like that are meat and potatoes this season for such series as “Humans,” HBO’s “Westworld,” USA’s “Mr. Robot” and Netflix’s “Black Mirror.” At first glance, these shows may seem to be about subservient robots, murderous mechanical bees or modern-day computer hackers who aspire to change the world with their code, but dismiss them as “mere” science fiction at your peril. They feature some of the most philosophically complex, thoughtful storytelling on TV, and even though they take place in alternative future universes, they are relevant to today’s tech-obsessed world.”
