Trivia

Michael Rawlins is only 5'2", so when he was making a command decision or talking authoritatively, select camera angles had to be used to hide the fact that he was shorter than the people he was in charge of. See more »

Ehrenthal's voice is actually one-half a second ahead of his lips when he is dressing down Hume for arresting Richard Collector. See more »

Quotes

James Calley: Before you go.
[pauses]
James Calley: The 12mm that killed the android?
David Hume: The out-of-policy 12mm?
James Calley: You have no knowledge of what happened to it?
David Hume: I have no knowledge.
[turns and leaves]
Martin Ehrenthal: [seeing gun on thermal scan] We can stop him before he leaves the building if you want.
James Calley: No. Let him hang onto the gun for the moment. I'm almost more interested in what he plans on doing with it than where it came from.

PK Dick would've been pleased
23 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of course, one would have to be familiar with science fiction writer Philip K. Dick to appreciate this series premier, which has absolutely nothing to do with an Arnold Schwarzenneger movie. "Total Recall: 2070" was Showtime's noble experiment in sci-fi noir. If one has actually read Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" and "We Can Build It For You Wholesale" then one has a basis for appreciating what this series was attempting to do. If not, probably not.

Those reviewers savvy enough to make the connection have written excellent reviews and I second their comments. There is a hard-bitten existentialism at the heart of this series which deals with issues of artificial life/intelligence, a corporate/government dominance reminiscent of "1984", and strained human relations in an environment where being human is by no means what it used to be.

Why the 22 episodes of this series have not been released is beyond me.
