The BBC has announced a four part mini-documentary series, The Real History of Sci-Fi to begin airing on April 19th, the same day their newest hit Orphan Black begins its newest series. The four episodes will cover the history of popular sci-fi themes including Time, Invasion, Space and Robots.
The list of contributors is huge. Big names in the sci-fi world like Nathan Fillion, William Shatner, Ursula K Le Guin, Edward James Olmos, and Zoe Saldana (just to name a few) are set to appear. And of course Doctor Who will be represented by David Tennant, Steven Moffat and Karen Gillan. If that's not enough for you Whovians, the whole thing is narrated by the frequent Who writer and Moffat's Sherlock partner, Mark Gatiss.
I'm personally most excited about the Robots episode. What about you?
Alexander Steinberg, an 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker managed to put together a video that encourages us all as an audience to take a minute, and ask ourselves, 'why does Pokémon GO! matter?'
Does it really? Or is there something more meaningful, impactful 'afoot? Is it the game's ability to unite strangers that'd otherwise never cross paths? One quote captured in the video sticks out in particular:
“You know my favorite part about this? Number one my brother and I used to play this as kids. He ends up passing away,” CrobinMaxxis said, pointing up. “He’s up there still, still, having a better fuckin’ collection than I do. But all the violence in the world, brutality, all this fucking racism. Look around here. You see this?” he said, gesturing to the crowd. “Not a single one is the same. Everyone is having a good time. This is what the world needs now.”
