Thanks to Amazon you can stream Electric Dreams.

Philip K. Dick is one of the most prolific, and greatest, SciFi authors. His writings have been far more than just entertaining, examining philosophical, social and political topics humanity has long needed to wrestle with. His mind has brought us great stories like Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (Blade Runner), The Man in the High Castle, Minority Report, The Adjustment Bureau, Ubik and many others, including a total of 44 published novels and over 120 short stories.

Amazon has taken 10 of his great short stories and produced 10 standalone movies. You can stream them now at Amazon here.

What are we in store for? Here is the trailer:

You can tell from the trailer this is going to be a wild and wonderful ride! Frankly not every episode is great. The first is slow, the second is awesome and thought provoking. The others are a good solid mix of great PKD stories and fantastic acting. So really, even though not every one is perfect SciFi, every one is worth watching. All will help you think through the future we want for humanity.

Electric Dreams has a star-studded cast, including Bryan Cranston, Steve Buscemi, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Janelle Monáe, and Greg Kinnear.
