Yeah, twenty years on, the world is not really all that amazing. We have regressed years in technology, and people are so focused on this battle of good vs. evil thing that happened just recently it’s like living under a theocracy. I might call it the ‘Taliban of the good’ although see in our timeline, the Taliban never existed, because Captain Trips took out most of the world in 1985.
I love post-apocalyptic stories because they bring out the best (and worst) aspects of the human character. Our screening has gotten me to think about other great post-apocalyptic films, so I present my own (admittedly biased) list of the top twenty post-apocalyptic films and television series of all time.
