Dr. Monkerstein in a recent post answered the Onion's AV Club question:
Which works of fiction create a world (or a version of reality) that you’d consider most enjoyable to live in?
I would be tempted to say The Lord of the Rings - who wouldn't want to live in the rustic world of the Shire, right? I think I'd like it, but I have a feeling the Hobbits would hate me. I picture the Gamgee clan running me out of town, and I'm stuck fending for myself. I'm no ranger and would probably starve to death or be killed by a Barrow Wight or something. I'd go stay with Tom Bombadil and his hot wife, but I'd at least have to have Dish Network, TiVo, and access to a Starbucks.
No, the 25th Century is a much better place for me. Groovy chicks, wisecracking robots, and interstellar discos are what this blogger wants. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century would be perfect - all the artificial amenities of The Jetsons with the a dash of late 70's flare - count me in!
Then there's Logan's Run. Sure, you're exterminated before you reach thirty, but what a time you'll have till then! All the cleanliness, conveniences and hedonism you'd expect from a Utopian future. It makes Club Med looks dreary and boring by comparison.
And last but not least, the television show UFO. No surprises here, I have already proclaimed my deep and abiding passion to work for SHADO.
I don't think it's hard to spot a trend here with my three choices - sort of PG-13 versions of The Jetsons. I wonder what your favorite imaginative worlds would be...
