2019: Los Angeles is a wasteland patrolled by berserk gangs, due to mass personality implant technology gone bad
from Epitaph One, a DVD/web episode from season 1 of Dollhouse

Reality: Personality implant technology isn’t real.

 Keep telling yourself that.

(No, seriously, this is way outside modern technological abilities.)

From left to right: Zack Ward, Adair Tishler, Felicia Day

Okay, today we get a few new labels. First, this is a Joss Whedon show, so we get "Whedonverse" as a label. Also, this is the first of many apocalypses (apocalypi?) predicted from science fiction we have covered. Quite often, the apocalypse is only a few years away from the date when TV show or movie first came out.

You know, just for dramatic effect.

Keep telling yourself that.

(No, seriously, people expecting the complete breakdown of society need to have their meds adjusted.)

So I'm ripping off a line from David Bowie's Five Years, "We've got five years/ And that's all we've got.", with the slight change that it's not always five years.  This one pushes the apocalypse out to ten years. Many will be the labels of the form "We've got n years/ And that's all we've got", with n as a variable.

Looking one day... INTO THE FUTURE! Forced plastic surgery insures everyone will be FAAAABULOUS!... in the Year 2000!
 
Join me then... IN THE FUTURE!
