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.
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.
