News & Interviews for Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1
Unlike "Black Mirror," though, much of "Electric Dreams" is generally a more optimistic show, with less fatalist themes.
Electric Dreams is too content with what Dick already dreamt up.
A large majority of Electric Dreams is worth your time, especially if you're a fan of Dick's work.
A worthy entertaining piece, of uneven quality that despite not bored at any time, does not honor the genius of the American writer who lends his name to the title. [Full Review in Spanish]
The 10 episodes have a more positive outlook on the future of humanity than other shows. However, the writing does not live up to the same level as other shows of its ilk.
Each episode is different, it's very much Amazon's answer to Black Mirror... I'm gonna add this to my list, but cautiously.
The parallels with our anxieties about state and corporate surveillance, the death of privacy and the fear of minorities (justified or otherwise) came across in a way that managed to feel both unignorable and unforced.
It's hit and miss for sure, but Dick's prolificacy as a writer means Hollywood can keep returning to this well for many more fascinating sci-fi setups for years to come.
Where the Charlie Brooker series plays with technology and the use that humans give it, in Electric Dreams what's more important are emotions, desires and metaphysics. [Full Review in Spanish]
Electric Dreams could have done with a few more bob in the meter, but the talent is top drawer, ditto the writing. Roll on the next nine episodes.
Whatever your desires, Amazon clearly hopes that they can provide the Philip K. Dick fantasy for you. If not, simply wait a few months. Judging from the last 30 years, there's more dreams to come.
Audience Reviews for Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1
Feb 12, 2021This show is incredibly good. If you like Black Mirror I think this show is for you. One episode, one history. Half of them were phenomenal, the other half just ok. I especially liked this episodes: "Real Life", "Human Is", "Autofac", "The Commuter" and "Imposible plannet". I liked the take on the future this series presented. Each episode gives us a question. Is this future good or not? This show does'nt provide answer.
Jan 07, 2021THis show is absolutely phenomenal! Every episode makes you think and scares you that it could be our future. Theyre so well filmed, scripted and acted. I want more!!!!! So sad to see it was only one season. Bring us more! Shocked not all 5 ⭐️ reviews! Each episode js a different short story. They feel like mini movies that are so detailed and intense that when they are over you want more. They really put your "what if" mind to use.
Aug 01, 2020While still uneven, like every anthology series, Amazon Prime and Sony make sure that they stand out from the rest of the crowd of Twilight Zone and Black Mirror immitators with unique spins, more variety (especially in tone), and finding ways to give hope in most episodes so this colorful series feels much less bleak and unpleasant as the rest. There's dozens of celebrities attached to each episode who each give out great preformances, the visuals dazzle, the plots always intrigue, and the show's quality remains mostly consistant and still feeling fresh through it's 10 episode run, which is hard to do. My personal favorites were "Human Is" and "The Commuter". 8/10.
Jul 07, 2020Every episode I've seen of this show is just incredible. It makes you think. Sometimes about humanity and sometimes about sci-fi tropes and conventions and how we should be breaking those more often. Electric Dreams is immersive and beautifully made.
May 22, 2020Beautiful stories, not all of which were great, but included gems.
May 20, 2020Has some good episodes but as a whole it's pretty average. Considering this is competing with black mirror, It has a long way to come.
Mar 02, 2020Several of the episodes are shot in almost complete darkness. It's the story that creates the mood/ suggests a dark era. You can't do it just by turning the lights off on set. This is not art. It's cash motivated adaptation (Philip K Dick probably wouldn't approve) with middle class actors as is always the way these days. If you really want a gritty representation, instead of turning the lights down, stop giving all the female roles to posh girls from SE England. Other than that, fascinating series. The flm makers need more experience.
Feb 20, 2020Like pretty much any anthology series, Electric Dreams is a mixed bag, which in this case skews towards the not-so-good, like Black Mirror, a show it must surely be compared to. Unfortunately the former doesn't seem to reach the high points of the latter, and I had to stop watching after five episodes. The last straw was the episode "The Hood Maker", which while uncompelling but watchable, commits the sin of having poor dialogue uttered incomprehensibly; something along the lines of, "You can read my mind, but you can't read my heart." What? This is science fiction, not romance - emotions are formed in the brain along with the rest of thought and many other neurological impulses - and the line makes even less sense when said in the brogue of the eldest Stark Boy, whose mumblings caused me to turn on the subtitles early on. I had thought since I was able to make it through Black Mirror's first episode's Hawk Man getting it on with his best friend's video game avatar I was ready for anything in the interest of seeing some quality sci-fi, but Electric Dreams proved me wrong and I decided to cash in my chips when the getting was good.
Feb 19, 2020Some of the episodes were just OK. Episodes "Safe & Sound" & "Human Is" were pretty good. Others were tough to follow, not interesting.
Feb 13, 2020Does not do justice to the source material. How they managed to make PKD works this bland is beyond me. The only one worth watching is "Safe and Sound" and it is absolutely chilling.
