It is noted that the only things that the series and the short story share are the Rekall company and the concept of virtual vacations, instead a much larger influence in its plot elements has been recognized to be the 1982 film Blade Runner which is a loose adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. The series creator Art Monterastelli has admitted the stronger influence of Blade Runner over Total Recall. The series consists of one season with a total of 22 episodes.



Philip K. Dick has a lot of film adaptations based on his works. Here is a list in alphabetical order:

A Scanner Darkly (July 7, 2006) - This film is based on the novel of the same name. The film was written and directed by Richard Linklater and starred Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, and Winona Ryder.

Blade Runner (June 25, 1982) - This film is based on the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and directed by Ridley Scott. In 1993, the film was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. The film was dedicated to Philip K. Dick. An interesting fact about the film is that seven different versions of Blade Runner exist as a result of controversial changes requested by studio executives. Blade Runner is the first of the franchise of the same name. A sequel, titled Blade Runner 2049, which was also based on his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, was released in October 2017 alongside a trilogy of short films covering the thirty-year span between the two films' settings, then anime series Blade Runner: Black Lotus was released in 2021. Also, a sequel series, Blade Runner 2099, is in development at Amazon Studios.

Barjo (7 July 1993) - Barjo, or in French, Confessions d'un Barjo is a French film based on Philip K. Dick's novel Confessions of a Crap Artist. Fun fact about the title is the word Barjo translates into "nutcase" or "nut job". The film was directed by Jérôme Boivin and produced by Françoise Galfré.

Impostor (January 4, 2002) - This film was based on the short story of the same name. The film adaptation was originally planned to be one segment of a three-part science fiction anthology film titled Light Years, but was the only segment filmed before the project fell apart. The other shorts were to be adaptations of Isaac Asimov's story The Last Question and Donald A. Wollheim's story Mimic. The film was produced by Gary Fleder, Marty Katz, Daniel Lupi, and Gary Sinise who also starred in the movie as Spencer Olham.

Minority Report (June 21, 2002) - The film is loosely based on the 1956 short story of the same name. The film was first optioned in 1992 as a sequel to another Philip K. Dick adaptation, Total Recall, with Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his role as Doug Quaid. But after Total Recall production company Carolco Pictures filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the project was reworked into a stand-alone project and started its development in 1997. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg and starred Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell. Along with several media including a video game titled Minority Report: Everybody Runs, Minority Report was followed up by a television series of the same name in 2015 that aired on Fox but was canceled in 2016 after one season.

Next (April 27, 2007) - The film's original script was loosely based on the 1954 short story The Golden Man however the script was extensively rewritten. The film was directed by Lee Tamahori and produced by Todd Garner, Norm Golightly, Graham King, Arne Schmidt and Nicolas Cage who also starred in the movie alongside Julianne Moore and Jessica Biel.

Paycheck (December 25, 2003) - The film is based on the short story of the same name. The film was directed by John Woo and features several of his trademarks, including two Mexican standoffs, the appearance of a dove and a birdcage similar to the one seen in 1992's film Hard Boiled. The film stars Ben Affleck, Aaron Eckhart, and Uma Thurman.

Radio Free Albemuth (June 27, 2014) - The film is based on the novel of the same name and was written, directed, and produced by John Alan Simon. The film starred Alanis Morissette, Ashley Greene, and Scott Wilson.

Screamers (January 26, 1996) - The film is based on the 1953 short story Second Variety. The film was made in Canada. Locations included a quarry in Quebec, in Montreal's Olympic Stadium, as well as Joliette. Screamers was directed by Christian Duguay and starred Peter Weller, and Roy Dupuis. A sequel was made titled Screamers: The Hunting that was released on February 17, 2009. The sequel starred Stephen Amell and Lance Henriksen.

The Adjustment Bureau (March 4, 2011) - The film is based on the 1954 short story Adjustment Team. In early drafts of the script, the character of David Norris was changed from a real-estate salesman, as in Philip K. Dick's short story, to an up-and-coming U.S. Congressman. The film starred Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.

The Crystal Crypt (December 2013) - The short film is based on the short story of the same name. The film starred Yuri Lowenthal, Cyrus Zoghi, and Tara Platt.

Total Recall (June 1, 1990) - The film is based on the 1966 short story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale. Although considered promising, the ambitious scope kept the project in development hell at multiple studios over sixteen years, seeing forty script drafts, seven different directors, and multiple actors cast as Douglas Quaid. The estimated budget was $48–80 million making it one of the most expensive films made in its time. Alongside comic books and video games, Total Recall has been adapted into the television series Total Recall 2070 which first aired in 1999 and resulted in a single season consisting of 22 episodes. In 2022 a remake was made also titled Total Recall although this version does not credit Philip K. Dick as a writer.

    This guy was incredibly prolific, and I can only wonder what else he may have come up with given more time. I love to recommend his books, and usually recommend the more “mainstream” of his work, given that so many have been adapted into movies that it seems everyone has seen. (Not so) fun fact: his books are among the most often “gone missing” here in the library where I work.
