Soylent Green took place in 2022. Do you think we might be close to this point? After all, 1984 has rung true in many ways. This is what strikes to the core of sci fi imo. How about you?

That's something very interesting to think about. I agree that this subject is the heart of the genre of sci fi, but that doesn't mean 70's / 80's futuristic sci fi was very accurate...

Mad Max is great, but it is a completely different thing from SG. In fact, it makes SG look even more dire and visceral imo.

I agree, and you worded it better than I ever could :) 

While the rest of the world is dire, serious and grim....then there is Australia amidst a the Thunderdome.... screwin' around in a serious-but-not-so-serious way.

Give us a flood and you'll find someone using a BBQ as a boat just to take the piss :P
