It seemed like during the 2000s and early 2010s people who watched fantasy shows and "Battlestar Galactica" were seen as "People who lived in basements".
And hopefully "For All Mankind" can suck in more mainstream viewers too.Why were TV watchers less open minded about sci fi and fantasy in the 2000s?
In the early 2010s it seemed like cable TV hit the "idiot button".
And hopefully "For All Mankind" can suck in more mainstream viewers too.
No, men and women soldiers in the future will never have shared showers unless men are genetically altered to not being complete jerks.
I don't disagree. Just ditch the punk hairstyles. And maybe in the future, tattoos will be out of style. Most currently produced shows in the future have a darker dystopian feel too it. Got help us all, even Star Trek Discovery and Picard are darker, destroying Gene Rodenberry's vision of Star Trek of a humanity that has moved passed our cultural differences, and is why those shows are so much despised by traditional Trekkies.
The attitude to Sci-fi has always been there. I would say that Star Wars in 1977 helped to dispel that and made sci-fi properly mainstream for the first time that I can remember. Having said that, the Republic sci-fi serials of the 30's were considered mainstream too.
The specter of a potential space war like the ones in Star Wars was aroused by the USSR's development of the IS-A satellite killer weapons in the late 1970s.
