Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Kill All OthersRegisserad avDee Rees
The series exemplifies the logic of Design Fiction: it's great at imagining what sorts of gadgets and visual technologies we will be using in the future - and their horrific side effects - but terrible at constructing compelling narratives. Most of PDK:ED episodes are basically long tech demos. This particular adaptation is much more political than the original 1953 story, The Hanging Man and it's about 2017 USA.
An obvious outcome and predictable story can’t change the fact that the society portrayed feels disturbingly familiar as people are slowly stimuleres into silence through consumerism, propaganda and sex. It may not be very subtle about the way the U.S. is headed but then why should it be? What should one do when all enemies are gone? Create new ones to scare your citizens into willing subjects.
