Things I Learned About The Future By Watching The Twilight Zone Season 1 Episode 7: The Lonely

As a kid I loved watching The Twilight Zone. Especially the episodes about space. They stirred my imagination about the future. Thanks to Netflix I recently started watching The Twilight Zone again. Here is what I learned about the future by watching The Twilight Zone season 1 episode 7: The Lonely

In the future: 

The United Stated will find giant habitable Asteroids nine million miles from Earth and use them as prisons. But they will only put one convict on each asteroid. In a metal hut. And every four months they will make that nine million mile journey to bring the sole prisoner supplies. 

Apparently they emptied out the Smithsonian to stock the prison huts with cool ancient technology like 45 rpm record players. 

The great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandson of the actor who played Ted Baxter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show looks exactly like his great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather and is a unsympathetic jerk. 

They pronounce robot “robit” in the future. 

“Robits” look exactly like women but they have a bunch of clock gears inside their incredibly realistic outer shell. 

Space helmets look a lot like 1950’s football helmets. 

At the end of every major life event a guy in a black suit recaps the event for you.
