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

January 16, 2018
Unlike "Black Mirror," though, much of "Electric Dreams" is generally a more optimistic show, with less fatalist themes.
January 12, 2018
Electric Dreams is too content with what Dick already dreamt up.

But mostly, they play with familiar ideas in conventional high-tech settings: They're futures that seem oddly dated.
January 12, 2018
With diverse storytelling and visuals, there's a lot to glom onto and enjoy in Electric Dreams. Like people who obsessively rank or debate episodes of Black Mirror, you can just assume that your particular highs and lows will be different.

Unless your mind is very fresh to these subjects, it will not be blown, but that is not to say you won't fret over the fate of the characters, or feel their feelings, or hope for the hopeful rather than hopeless outcome.
January 12, 2018
The main problem is that almost everything here, perhaps unavoidably, has a been-there, seen-that undercurrent to it.
January 11, 2018
All in all, Electric Dreams contains more hits than misses and a couple of real gems.
January 11, 2018
Electric Dreams works because there's a fascinating nugget of insight about humanity in every episode, even if they don't always succeed.

The episodes in Electric Dreams are far more understated and, while they have their share of plot twists, lean more heavily toward subtle mystery than moments of shock or nastiness.
January 10, 2018
Reality isn't always recognizable in these stories, but the characters that populate them are all too real.

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

The anthology is alluring, given the source material, but very uneven.
