Really disappointingly poor
18 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Really thoroughly disappointed in the first episode of this series.

It reminds me of ITV's Beowulf in the respect that they set out to produce a high quality drama to win audiences hooked on Game of Thrones and begging for more quality TV.

They ended up with an astonishing flop, virtually every aspect from the sets they wasted all their money on to the no-name actors who couldn't act.

With Electric Dreams I had the distinct impression that this would be Channel 4's shot at a series to rival Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror. A mostly dystopian twisted introspective on Human society and nature.

What we have in this first episode is a show lost of meaning, lacking any feeling of a believable world inhabited by people who could be us. We know Richard Madden can put on a good performance, but the scripting is thin and lifeless making predictable and uninteresting turns.

Books do not simply translate directly to TV or Film, they require a complete reworking, artistic vision and careful scripting. This episode has none of this, it is a bore to watch.

I can only hope more for the rest of the series. The first ep should really have been a strong one to hook an audience and convince them the show is worth sticking with - as such I am not holding out much mope for the coming weeks and will likely only be setting aside the time if they show significantly more promise.
