At this point, I have no plans to produce studies of the 1999 Canadian Total Recall 2070 TV series. Besides the name and being set mostly on Mars, the series basically had nothing to do with the 1990 movie, with the story elements bearing more resemblance to Blade Runner (itself based on another Philip K. Dick story "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?").
I am continuing to use the
term "episode" here as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the
continuous narrative of a larger story.
