21806 Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams
Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is a sci-fi anthology series of ten epic, ambitious and moving standalone episodes, each set in a different and unique world – some which lie in the far reaches of the universe and time and others which are much, much closer to home. While the stories may be worlds apart, central to each is the poignant and warm exploration of the importance and significance of humanity.

Each episode is inspired by one of Philip K. Dick’s renowned shorts stories and has been adapted by an exciting list of leading British and American writers and directors. The series also features an all-star roster of cast who head up this thrilling, audacious and emotional journey into the far reaches of imagination.


Starts this Sunday at 9pm.

Satire transcends finding a political solution and just helps us laugh at the absurdities of life. When South Park does get political however it's libertarian in outlook which doesn't need to justify itself so much as point out the solutions are all awful and poke fun at the kinds of people who want to impose their vision on others.

Orville didn't actually have that bad a first episode. I don't know how long this parody series can last but I think it captured some of the old magic of Star Trek and was played much straighter than the trailers showed.

At the very least they used science to defeat their enemy rather than punches. Maybe STD won't be so bad either.

It's advisable to switch off from the mass media if you can. Dispassionately researching facts and drawing your own conclusions is the best you can do. You won't have an accurate perception of the world, but at least you won't be believing someone else's lie.

The real question is; what sort of information should I seek, ultimately, and what sort of information should I seek next in furtherance of that? How much detail do I need to know? How much time should I devote to learning one thing over another? It's a really puzzling question.

What we can say for certain is that of the information available, it's in our best interests to omit the set of information presented to us which is intended to control our behavior and so limit our pursuit of personally relevant information in our interests. Thus; cut out the mass media. The mass media is and always has been there to serve a political function; it was never meant to give people an accurate and relevant perception of the world and its goings on.

I think one of the most important things to remember is that these type of medias focus on issues happening in the Americas, not the UK (so much at least). It's easy to overlook this and make significantly paranoid and panic stricken changes to your lifes because you're worried about floride, food additives (or whatever). This isn't to say conspiracies don't happen here, but consider this; While you're investigating the corrupt goings on in a country on the other side of the globe, you're missing what's happening here, possibly on your doorstep. Distraction, you know?

>If people try to enter the system who don't have [the manufactured] point of view, they're likely to be excluded somewhere along the way. After all no institution is going to happily design a mechanism to self destruct. So they all work to exclude, marginalise or eliminate dissenting voices or alternative perspectives because they're disfuntional to the institution itself.

What I find interesting about this is there seems to be a split going on in America at the moment regarding 'alternate facts', race groups, etc. Who's behind this destabilisation of the status quo; could multiple parties be battling it out or is it all a ploy by those in power?

It's an interesting time to be alive.

Without a doubt, this has become my favourite adult cartoon and I can't wait for the next season.

Dark, clever, brilliantly amusing. Really fucking dark in places.

There are episodes on YT but some of these have had the voices altered to avoid automatic take downs I guess?

The problem is the longer it goes on the less impact the larger story arcs have. When the first season ended it felt like something real, but then it went on again. The Rick went to jail and it was framed as a really moving thing with a sense of finality but no, he just escapes by being overpowered and not really even a very clever sort of plot.

>mentally ill should be equivalent to saying I've got a cold, or the flu, or I sprained my ankle.

Not really, mental health has a stigma for a good reason because it can mean that you are a danger to yourself and to society at large. Obviously not all mental illnesses are the same but there is a reason we associate manics with violence, schizophrenics will paranoid destructive behavior, depressives with wallowing and self destruction, and autists with actually caring about doctor who canon.

I'm saying this as a person who has friends and family crippled by all of the above. In all seriousness I've had to deal with manics and depressives who have used being open about their problems as a way to absolve themselves of guilt for their shitty behavior and lack of self control, and people think they are helping by being 'understanding' and shifting the burned of their behavior on to everyone in their path, but this is tacit to abuse. Your cause is more short sighted than you think.

I agree an openness about depression for the introverted is a positive as it is for anxiety, and any learning disorder where people need to admit they fall short would be a benefit and there are plenty of milder cases where it would be relevant, but you can't treat all mental illnesses as being helped by people being accepting and open, and like it would always be of benefit to the problem, sometimes the best thing is for people to feel they should solider on and strive for a life of managing normality without drawing attention to themselves and people moving the bar to excusing their failures.

>I wonder if this is what they called the pink pound.

Very much so, but it marked a really important change for gay and lesbian people.

Back in 1995, Section 28 was still in force, a law stating that no local authority may "promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship". Homosexuality had been officially decriminalised in 1967, but gay men were still being arrested well into the 80s on charges of "outraging public decency". The age of consent wouldn't be equalised until 2000. The trauma of the AIDS epidemic was still very raw - just a few years previously, an HIV diagnosis was a death sentence. A lot of people saw a lot of friends die, eaten away by tumours and infections and god knows what.

As laughable as it seems now, the idea of a gay advert or a gay perfume was genuinely thrilling. Those little tokens of acceptance really meant something. The attitude of "your money is as good as anyone else's" marked a real sea change. We weren't quite normal yet, but we weren't perverts or plague carriers any more.

If it's a commercial release, then Shazam is remarkably accurate. As >>21560 says, a lot of incidental music in TV is licensed from music libraries rather than commercial releases, because the licensing is much cheaper and easier. It's also fairly common for a soundtrack to be specifically recorded - a composer on a modern digital workstation can knock out half an hour of original music in two days. If a composer was involved, they should be mentioned in the end credits.
