What if you ran out of fuel for your hybrid solar/gas-powered jet pack? What if dinosaurs come back? We've covered a myriad of future-esque films in past episodes (Back to the Future, Aliens, Paycheck). Through the years, we've seen the future in various styles by many directors/writers. This week, we tackle the prospect of the "Near Future" and what may be in store for us, as both a society & a species.
Justice, Anarchy & Science: Rather heavy topics all by themselves, but when merged with our theme this week, it opens up a whole new can of proverbial worms. Is security worth the price of our own freedom? Is technology the only barrier between us & chaos? Do we as a species have the capacity to prevent our own extinction? Make a contingency plan & find out just how heavy this week's episode gets. There's that word again... Heavy. Would you like some dystopia with that?
