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

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.
... 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.
The re-imagining of Philip K Dick's short stories immerses you in future-scapes defined by technology, environment, and the human spirit.
