Its pretty fun to see what people imagine the Life After People could become. I love visiting ruins of old places, so it is pretty cool to hear the facts and view the CGI of our modern places becoming old.
A 'guilty' pleasure if ever there was one. This stuff is TOTALLY gratuitous, and maybe just a wee bit mean-spirited. There are NO cautionary messages about how we can keep from f***ing up royally amd wiping ourselves off the face of the earth...it simply presumes that we HAVE, and then proceeds, quite dispassionately, to display what will happen to the silly world we've built around ourselves once we do. When I first saw George Pal's brilliant "The Time Machine" as a kid, I was VERY shocked by that marvelous time-lapse sequence that showed our world vanishing, over a span of millenia, as The Machine careened out of control into a now-barren world tens of thousands of years into the future. This show slows down that time-lapse into bone-chilling detail, and reminds us how utterly unimportant us humans are in the long scheme of things. Brutal, DELICIOUS science fiction!
