Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams goes hand in hand with Black Mirror
Amazon's 10-part anthology series starring such big names as Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin and Steve Buscemi has been referred to as the streaming service’s answer to Black Mirror. “Stylistically and philosophically, though, they’re a binary set,” says Spencer Kornhaber. “Electric Dreams is televisually muddy next to Black Mirror’s austere confidence, but it has an emotional generosity that the Netflix series lacks, serving up plenty of happy endings with twists that are more conventional. Of greater note are the contrasts in the shows’ thematic emphases. Electric Dreams usually insists that the tyranny of the collective is the urgent concern. Black Mirror is often a fantasy of individualism taken too far. The dystopian drama most apt for 2018 might be a synthesis of the two.” ALSO: Some episodes are real gems, while other feel overly familiar.
