Following Black Mirror with a show that absolutely would not exist had Black Mirror not turned out to be a monumental masterpiece is like asking a Kardashian sister to deliver a speech after Barack Obama.
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.
"Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams" is, in a word, embarrassing. From the juvenile production values to the unabashed "Black Mirror" fanfic, the show is one of the worst high-profile television series I can recall.
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.
