The cover features the long-anticipated Ridley Scott movie Blade Runner, adapted from Philip K. Dick's story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. It's great to see it get such prominent placement, but it's a shame that -- for a movie that featured such astounding visuals -- the cover photo is rather grainy and out of focus.
"Returning to the tube is ABC's Greatest American Hero, now joined by CBS' Mr. Merlin (a comedy) and The Powers of Matthew Star on NBC. ... [T]hese three shows point to another trend in the making. Ralph, Matthew and Merlin all have powers that are activiated by thought -- the powers of the mind. It seems as though TV is forecasting an end to the investigation of outer space in favor of exploring inner space. If these three shows prove successful, we may see shows featuring psychic cops, telekinetic gurus and the Jean Dixon Predicts hour."
