Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (2017)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Electric Dreams' dreamy production values and optimistic tone help make up for a lack of originality and tonal cohesion -- and save the show from feeling like just another Black Mirror clone.

Critic Reviews for Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams Season 1

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (14)

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.

Dick didn't predict a future in which slow-burning TV dramas went on for years at their own glacial rhythm.

Sep 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

At a time when audiences clearly have an appetite for engaging with bigger questions, presented in a mind-bending, beautifully filmed format, Electric Dreams will more than satisfy.

The story is elliptical, even by Dick's standards, but reframing it as a tortured romance renders it more conventional even as it smooths out its edges.

Sep 19, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Each episode is different, it's very much Amazon's answer to Black Mirror... I'm gonna add this to my list, but cautiously.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 5, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1

½

A fascinating science fiction anthology series, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams delivers an extraordinary first season full of provocative, mind-bending stories of the fantastical. Based on ten Philip K. Dick short stories, the episodes deal with alternate realities, psychic abilities, alien invasions, and Orwellian states. Some are more loosely inspired than others, but they all have the dystopic feel that is characteristic of Dick's work. Produced by Ronald D. Moore and featuring Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Vera Farmiga, and Juno Temple, the show has assembled a number of talented writers, directors, and actors. Season 1 of Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams is incredibly exciting and thought-provoking, and really captures the spirit and vision of Philip K. Dick.
