Storyline

A documentary about technological innovations that were supposed to improve our lives and be widely available to the mass market soon after the year 2000. Most inventions and ideas were outstanding. However, now that 2000 has passed even the concepts in the earliest shows appear just as futuristic and seem just as unlikely to be in consumer use in the near future as they did during the 1980s.

ha! I can't believe there's an entry for this
4 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Does anyone else even remember this show? I was addicted. Along with Max Headroom: 20 Minutes in the Future, it was the epitome of TV futuristic cool in the mid 80s. Every show featured weird stuff that was supposed to be commonplace in the near future (but 2000 sure seemed a long ways off even then, huh?). I'm not sure, but it must have had "cool" graphics and music to get me to be so into it. They probably made everything sound really mysterious and cool. I haven't seen this since the late 80s, I'm sure. I'm surprised to see that it ran as long as this entry says it did. It would be neat to see it rerun on TechTV or something.
