Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams (2017)

I was already quite excited about this show from the initial trailer;  It's the work of Phillip K Dick, it's a sci-fi anthology TV show and the cast contained some impressive acting talent.

Having seen further images and read which writers and directors are involved in each episode I'm now even more pumped
However, the space helmet featured at the end of the latest trailer has left me gobsmacked.
If that's not an original Doppelganger / UFO helmet, then its a very deliberate replica (With additional side lights).
Whilst these have had quite a bit of a career appearing in any number of TV shows, book covers and adverts, I don't believe I've got anything later than 1975 for them in the blog.  Quite where its been in all those years and why it's come out of retirement now remains to be revealed in the coming months but somebody out there knows their science fiction icons.
Some must watch TV, I think and most probably a few magazine interviews to be read afterwards.

Thank you Dave for the heads up on this.
