10 Times TV Shows Predicted The Future

10) 1999: in a sketch Chris Rock jokes that
O.J. Simpson wrote a book titled ‘I Didn’t Kill My Wife! (But If I DID, Here’s How I’d
Do It)’. 8 years later O.J. Simpson released a book
about the murder of his wife titled ‘If I Did It, Here’s How it Happened.’ 9) A 1995 episode of the Simpsons set in the
future shows Lisa’s fiancé using his watch to make a phone call.
In 2013 smart watches became widely available allowing calls to be answered from the watch. 8) Cartoon The Jetsons debuted in 1962 but
was set in 2062. It accurately predicted future gadgets…
…including flatscreen TVs, video-conferencing, moving walkways & tanning beds. 7) In May 2012 a Person of Interest episode
aired about a young male NSA whistle blower revealing the agency’s illegal surveillance.
A year later in June 2013 Edward Snowden whistle blows on NSA activities, mirroring the events
of the episode. 6) The Six Million Dollar Man (1974) featured
a protagonist with superhuman bionic limbs. In 2012 scientists achieved a neuroscience
breakthrough which allowed a woman to move her artificial limb with her thoughts. 5) An episode of Family Guy depicts a failed
suicide attempt by comedian Robin Williams. A repeat of the episode was broadcast by BBC
3, minutes before news of Robin William’s suicide broke. 4) 1980s cartoon Inspector Gadget featured
a precursor to a laptop, used by his niece Penny.
The computer book was a wireless handheld device with a search engine & GPS. 3) Star Trek: Deep Space Nine predicted Google
Glass with a head set used by the Vorta & Jem’Hadar species.
In the series wearing the gadget is described ‘like having a view screen inside your brain’. 2) 1987 sitcom Second Chance predicted the
date of Colonel Gaddafi’s death within 3 months.
The episode set in July 2011 depicts Gaddafi facing judgment before St. Peter in front
of pearly gates. 1) In March 2001 the pilot episode of The
Lone Gunmen depicts a highjacked airplane being aimed toward the World Trade Center.
The episode aired 6 months before 9/11 took place.
