Future Fantastic - Series 1 (1996)
Release Date: 9 August 1996 (UK) British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)
"DW Staff Approved"
A series of Science Fiction documentaries on a similar theme to the X-Files only true stories. Some of the topics include aliens, our planet, technology and UFO's. Gillian Anderson has a wonderful performance hosting the show as she guides her audience through all of these topics showing in a very entertaining way what is fact and what is (still) fiction.
Fans of the unusual--both science fiction and science fact--will appreciate this exploration of that frontier where the world of imagination meets the world of human invention. A wide array of science fiction stars, from Isaac Asimov and Frederick Pohl to Bruce Sterling and Neal Stephenson, share screen time with some of the most celebrated and notorious minds in science, from astronaut Story Musgrave and MIT's Marvin Minsky to ufologist Bob Lazar, Survival Research Labs' Mark Pauline and "bad boy of robotics" Rod Brooks (whose self-teaching machines were featured in Fast, Cheap & Out of Control). Hosted by X-Files star Gillian Anderson, the nine episodes of this joint production of the BBC, The Learning Channel, and ProSieben can be reminiscent of an old Dr. Who episode: a bit too fond of cheesy video effects, but rich enough with ideas to make the watching worthwhile. Most interesting is the comparison between the imaginary science of the authors and the actual science practiced in labs around the world. The real thing is far stranger, with geneticists growing flies with eyes on their feet, physicists actually teleporting subatomic particles across a room, and robotics engineers showing off a fully functional intelligent car that is capable of crossing the country without human assistance. The first episode, focusing on alien life and UFO conspiracies, is probably the weakest. But once the scope of actual scientific research sinks in, the show hits its stride, and you're guaranteed more than one moment of total awe.
