Total Recall 2070
Loosely based on the film “Total Recall” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger AND (perhaps more directly) on “Blade Runner”, it looks somewhat like an unofficial “BR: The Series”. Then again, the androids featured in the series seem like direct ancestors of those seen in the Alien movies, as they are clearly mechanical, with white, milk-like fluid for “blood”. Except the latest model, who becomes a police detective, is different…
A highly acclaimed anime OVA (“original video animation”) series, like many Japanese SF oriented animation, the series is highly influenced by BR and that other influential 80′s film, “The Terminator”. The series is about a team of high-tech vigilantes, a group of women using high tech exoskeleton suits who are fighting renegade “Boomers”, androids built by the ominous Genom Corporation. One of the main characters is called “Priss” and she has a band called “The Replicants”.
SF action series set in a dystopian near future, featuring people who are created as a result of genetic manipulation. Some of them escape and try to lead ‘normal’ lives… Sound familiar?
SF action series set in a world where genetic designers have messed with human DNA to create people with enhanced or extra abilities. Genome-X is the official group who exploit the mutants, but a few have broken off to form a counter-group who only want to help the resultant mutants.
