Philip K Dick's Electric Dreams

On Amazon Prime Video, now streaming.

Episode 2, "Autofac," is of particular interest to us :-) The show's pretty solid all around.

Awesome. Been waiting for that particular episode to air. A guy posted about Electric Dreams sometime ago. Pretty neat show.

Here's some background on the episode, and a preview clip here.

Anyone want to give some spoilers for those of us who don't watch TV? Is Janelle Monáe the only android?

SPOILERS**************


I haven't watched the whole episode, BUT, I skimmed most of it and...


Nope. EVERYONE is and android. The main plot twist is that the main characters are all sleeper androids, who are, ehem, obviously programmed to think they are real humans, because Humans became extinct after the holocaust, so the titular automatic factory, or AUTOFAC, replaced humans with android copies.

Ah, that was implied in the Wikia link. Nice to know, but they sort of look all grubby. :P

Quite maddeningly, I've found a number of sources online that claim to have the full episode, but they all appear to have it mixed up and instead of "Autofac", the file is episode 2, "Impossible Planet". Any assistance would be appreciated. :/

Yeah, the order of episodes is different on Amazon & channel 4, I was super confused when I was looking at episode guides yesterday.

SPOILERS in case you didn't read the rest of the thread ... just to get that out of the way ...


I did finally get to watch it. Now my new favorite sleeper-awaken scene when Emily is hooked up and downloaded. I think Juno Temple did fine as Emily, and she was attractive-enough in my book. Janelle Monáe does an awesome job (of course) as the far-more-robotic ALICE.

It was very disappointing that the rest of the camp was populated with actors whose CV summary does not include the word "attractive", to put it politely—plus they were about 70% male by my baseless guess. Also disappointing was that the other three major characters were male (and even among them, if you are into men, only Conrad (David Lyons) was decent-looking). So there's literally Emily and ALICE to fawn over ... which I guess is actually pretty good.
