1984, 2001 but what's next?

OK, 1984 came and went, then I looked ahead to 2001. Been there.
My question is, are there any other such years to look forward to, or have we exhausted the fictional stock?

How quickly we forget 2010.

Also, am I the only one who waited for August 29th, 1997 with minor trepidation?

Mystery Science Theater 3000?

In the year 2525, hot chicks fight to keep hope alive…

[This thread probably belongs somewhere other than GQ, but that’s the moderators’ job]

Revolt in 2100 (Heinlein story)

In the year 2525, if man is still alive…

A lot more dates (past and future) are in this thread:

How soon they forget. What about Space 1999? Or Death Race 2000. When 2001 was coming up I complained on this Board that “There was no Space 1999 calendar. When 2000 came around I didn’t see a Death Race 2000 calendar. Now there’s no 2001: A Space Odyssey Calendar. They better get their act together, because I was my 2010: The Year We Make Contact calendar.”

I don’t think they’re gonna do it in timne, though.

Although there are dates coming up in SF works, I can’t think of anything closer than 2010 in titles. And nothing close by after 2010.

Well, there’s 2017, which isn’t too terribly much farther off. (Think Billy Joel)

Isn’t something bad supposed to happen on 05/05/05?

And the Mayan calendar, and possibly all existance is supposed to end on 12/21/12.

Don’t forget Sealab 2020 (and 2021)

There was the Rush album 2112, based loosely on Ayn Rand’s novelette Anthem.

And let’s not forget 2061: Odyssey 3 and 3001: The Final Odyssey..

Hehe, that’s my ex-girlfriend.


That’s the next “Y2K” bug, right? 32-bit date overflow or something… yeah, I’m really looking forward to that one. :rolleyes:
