October 10, 2018
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.
September 5, 2018
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.
August 27, 2018
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.
April 27, 2018
Each episode pulses with Dick's fictional obsessions, such as the blurring of lines between humans and machines, the possibilities created by space travel, and the toxic worlds engineered by cold-hearted corporations.
March 5, 2018
This series has been a disappointment.

While Electric Dreams is more diverse in tone and subject than Black Mirror's incessant nihilism, it struggles to maintain Charlie Brooker's timeliness with Dick's dated stories of androids and body snatchers.

Electric Dreams comes off as a sort of modern-day Twilight Zone, with not-so-very-special effects. I did like "The Hood Maker," "Safe and Sound" and "Human Is." But even these have twists too easy to predict.
January 25, 2018
Every episode of Electric Dreams is absolutely gorgeous, unafraid to go wide and showing great restraint in the accoutrements of science fiction...You probably won't like every episode, but you'll definitely find one you'll never forget.
January 25, 2018
... the good news is that, with so many more Dick short stories waiting to be adapted, there are a lot more questions for future seasons to ask.
January 23, 2018
The re-imagining of Philip K Dick's short stories immerses you in future-scapes defined by technology, environment, and the human spirit.

January 23, 2018
The latest Philip K Dick adaptation is a beautifully austere meditation on the kind of question that might underpin a fairytale: is it better to live a happy dream or to see the world clearly?
January 18, 2018
With this series and Netflix's Black Mirror, the sci-fi anthology series is now back as a revitalized genre.
January 17, 2018
Even when Electric Dreams' episodes are flat and predictable - and frankly, "Father Thing" is both - they're still well-acted.
January 16, 2018
Sci-fi anthology show has clever ideas, sex and violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2018
Electric Dreams has something that predates Charlie Brooker's semi-dystopian tech drama: the work of the iconic genre writer for which it's named...it employs an impressive roster of writers, directors, and actors to put their own spin on Dick's oeuvre.
January 16, 2018
Unlike "Black Mirror," though, much of "Electric Dreams" is generally a more optimistic show, with less fatalist themes.
