Wanted to post this news from Vulture, was surprised to see there wasn't already a Sci-Fi thread. Anyway, I am guaranteed to love this new show:


Bryan Cranston Is Making a Black Mirror-Style Philip K. Dick Anthology Series

Bryan Cranston is cooking up an addictive little product: No, it's not blue crystal, it's more like Black Mirror. Britain's Channel 4 and Sony Pictures Television are producing Electric Dreams: The World of Philip K. Dick, a ten-episode anthology series based on the works of the prolific sci-fi pioneer. Much in the style of Black Mirror, the first season will be made up of ten stand-alone episodes, each "adapted and modernized" from a Dick novel or short story. Outlander and Battlestar Galactica's Ronald Moore and Justified's Michael Dinner are writing and executive producing the project, while Cranston will also executive produce and appear in the series. The series may avoid Dick's classics, given that there are so many existing adaptations, but if they do tackle Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (which became Blade Runner), may we suggest putting Bryan Cranston in the Daryl Hannah part? He'd rock that eye shadow.

This thread will only lead to another Sci Fi or Fantasy argument.

lenny, did you see the director's cut of Blade Runner? The ending is much better and there is no voice over.

i haven't yet...i've heard that before though

i'm not sure it would elevate a ton for me...and that's not to say i dislike it at all, it just doesn't grab me like it seems to most otherz

This could be good. I just got back from seeing Blade Runner: The Final Cut in the theater as a one off showing.

It was pretty cool seeing one of my favorite movies on the big screen for the first time after seeing it so many times on DVD. Definitely worth it.

Should I watch Dune again? I haven't seen it since I was a kid and I think I may love it.
