Symptom 124: Evacuate Earth, Apocalypse Soon

We wrap our discussion of Apocalypse stories with a review of a National Geographic documentary called Evacuate Earth. It is a generally well done and scientifically accurate. They do a good job of presenting a reasonable world killing event and the doc becomes though experiment in how society would respond to that event. It briefly touches on social issues and the questions if raises but does not dwell on are the interesting lacunae in this one. All in all a good break from the last two crap fests.
