This is the pilot of the short-lived Showtime Channel show--I would love to see the rest of the series released on DVD. A smart, grim, and suspenseful plot propels a police detective through the future world of Total Recall and Blade Runner.

"This "movie" is the first two episodes of an awesome TV series. It is a captivating blend of 80% Blade Runner, 15% Total Recall, and 5% Data from Star Trek. The plot is dark and intriguing. Character development is excellent. Cyberpunk 2020 role-playing fans should love this. I just hope that episodes 3-22 come out on DVD - the sooner, the better."
The Bladerunner TV series

"If you're expecting Total Recall 2070 to be a continuation of the Arnie film from 1990, then you'd be wrong, however, you won't be disappointed, it's BETTER!It's really the Bladerunner TV series. The same issues with androids, the same tops of buildings with large extractor fans turning slowly with steam bellowing from the ground.What stops it from becoming the usual TV series based on a film is a compelling plot and the boldness to have nudity, violence and strong language.Picture and sound quality are good although nothing special. The computer graphics of the city sometimes look a bit dodgy.Really worth getting!"
Amazing science fiction- no comparison

"I have never before seen a show that offered such a perfect mixture of science fiction, action and suspense. The characters are believable, the set is masterful and the storyline is engaging. It is the most compelling, adult entertainment that I have ever enjoyed. In fact, I was so impressed with it that I made a point of programming it on my set, looking up its associated web sites and now contacting Showtime to continue support of this unique program. This show deserves a chance - and the audience is out there to support it. I will tell you one thing that is lacking though - IT NEEDS MARKETING! I never knew it was out there until I happened on it by accident. Now I make a point of watching it every weekend and I guarantee that if it were marketed appropriately it would gather a huge following. It is definitely worth buying, worth watching and worth supporting!"
