  1. Thanks for watching, nerds! In between your electric dreams, leave a comment and tell us your favorite Philip K. Dick adaptation is. Is it Next? Paycheck? Screamers? Or one of the reallly bad ones? Let us know!

  2. I've got to admit, you lost me at A.I.. It's never got really emotional to me, it stayed in that Uncanny Valley for the entire run.

  3. Philip K Dick doesnt do character well? Things like Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep and A Scanner Darkly are heavily about the characters.

  4. And to the question favorite PKD adaption would have to A Scanner Darkly. I havent seen Man in the High Castle or any of Electic Dreams yet.

  5. Really awesome exposition on the brilliant minds of Phillip K. Dick and Stephen Speilberg. Found this searching for how to adapt a short story to a feature length screenplay. I haven't had the fortune of reading any of Dick's works, I just recently found out he was a prolific writer and I will certainly pick up some of his stories. I can see how these may serve aspiring science fiction writers well. Thank you.
