Three cheers for grown-up sci-fi anthology series Electric Dreams, which promises to be a real treasure trove. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 The Hood Maker

A hunched robot in a Pac a Mac creeps behind a pillar. A quintet of babies with floating umbilical cords dance a ring of roses in mid-air. A neon sign advertises the services of a four-breasted woman. Welcome, say the opening credits, to the world of electric dreamer Philip K. Dick.

Or more properly, a world inspired by Philip K. Dick. Episode one of this ten-part anthology series has taken liberties with Dick’s 1955 short story The Hood Maker, and quite rightly. That was written under the shadow of McCarthyism, when loyalty and betrayal were matters of state. This was written under the shadow of the Snooper’s Charter and corporate data mining.

Here’s our verdict on two episodes of Amazon and Channel 4’s sci-fi anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams...

This sci-fi anthology series from Amazon and Channel 4, which arrives on screens later this month, adapts short stories from the literary master behind Blade Runner, Minority Report, Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly and The Man In The High Castle.

The 25 Best TV Theme Songs of the 21st Century, Ranked

13 June 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Amidst the chorus of people saying that TV is better than it’s ever been, you’ll always find one person lamenting the decline of the theme song. While it’s true that the days of minutes-long intros with original songs and catchy melodies might be in the past, there’s no denying that shows are still finding memorable (and in a few cases, iconic) ways to open each episode.

Gabriel Bergmoser Apr 11, 2017

Guessing a twist ahead of time only really ruins the fun if a TV show is doing a bad job to begin with, Gabriel argues...

Back in 2010, Den of Geek interviewed Matthew Graham, creator of the now-classic series Ashes To Ashes, shortly before the release of the show’s brilliant finale. When asked about how close the many fan theories were getting to the truth of how the series would end, he had this to say:

“The thing is that you should be able to guess. When you get to the end, you should be able to say ‘oh yes'. It's not an out-of-nowhere thing, because I think that would be a cheat. »

David Bowie Birthday Celebration: Gary Oldman, La Roux, Simon Le Bon and More Gather to Celebrate Rocker’s Life — Watch

9 January 2017 9:21 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been almost a year to the day since we lost David Bowie, but the rock icon and beloved creative force is still foremost in the minds of those who knew and loved him best. As Billboard reports, on Sunday evening, some of those people — including fans, friends and even former bandmates — gathered together to celebrate what would have been Bowie’s seventieth birthday for a three-hour charity concert at London’s Brixton Academy. It was an appropriately rocking and raucous event.

The show was hosted by actor (and close Bowie pal) Gary Oldman, who took the stage not only to emcee the event, but to rock out to a few of Bowie’s classics, including “Sorrow” and “The Man Who Sold the World.”
