Am I the only one who has noticed the strikingly similarity between the plot of the new movie "Elysium" and the plot of the ST-TOS episode "The Cloud Minders"?

In fact, I would say that the plot of The Cloud Minders is almost eerily prescient, considering the fact that global warming was unheard of in the late 60's.  I have not seen Elysium but I have to wonder if its writer(s) ever saw this episode.

I agree. When I saw the description of the movie Elysium (and people talking about how "original" the writers were blah, blah, blah, The first thing I thought was, "Didn't Star Trek already do that? Oh, well. I must say that we probably will see a lot more of that. Star Trek was way ahead of its time.

I thought I wasn't the only one who thought that too There is another movie that is similar to  The Return of the Archons  Where people pick one night or day in a week to go crazy and go on a robbing and killing craze and one family locks themseleves in their house until it's over

The original fan who remembered watching the show every Friday night on TV NBC
