I did get to catch the first episode of my new, most favorite show: Jericho. It is like this show was created just for me!

I just love futuristic survival stories. I even took a course at Graceland with my favorite professor about “Imagining the Future in Literature and Film.” It is not like I am one of those survivalists who stockpile food and weapons for when the apocalypse arrives. I just like imagining the future of human civalization.

Obviously, there are many, many more things that could be on the list, but those are my favorites that came to mind today. What are your favorite examples of futuristic science fiction?

UPDATE: Adam reminded me that Reign of Fire should also be on my favorites list.
