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 (12)

Unlike "Black Mirror," though, much of "Electric Dreams" is generally a more optimistic show, with less fatalist themes.

January 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Electric Dreams is too content with what Dick already dreamt up.

January 12, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

A large majority of Electric Dreams is worth your time, especially if you're a fan of Dick's work.

January 10, 2018 | Full Review…

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

September 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.

September 21, 2017 | Full Review…

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.
