This is turning out to be a very good short-stories series. Philip K Dick is a great, prolific writer, and I'm not one to get on the "everyone is amazing" train. He truly had a great mind. I just finished the latest (Ep5) and it actually got to me. There's a lot of wonder and feeling involved, I actually was pulled in a bit.
A show perhaps with a more modern feel like dark mirror doesn't quite give me such awe. Sure, there is newer knowledge to better toy with the not-so-distant future (written decades later than PKD stories), but the depth isn't as great.
This guy was so out there, you can find just how real all of this was to him with a quick search on YT. He once gave a lecture to an audience of university students about how his inspiration came from extra- dimensional beings... it was so vivid, complex, and real to him that he couldn't even accept it originated from him own mind. That's a true creative genius/madman.
Before you go on about how the story isn't so great, please realize the guy was born in the 1920s, died the year I was born (I'm 35), and yet still manages to warp the minds of millions. His stories have been used by Hollywood and countless others for a very long time.
