Currently, that's apocalypse 2012 and the paranormal. Give it a year or two, then we'll move on to the next big social fad.

It's 2012.. I don't see anything more nefarious than that. Shows like Falling Skies and Jericho proved a winning genre with enough people, so
they're taking it further. As usual, they're probably going a few steps right past the point of decency and good taste, but this is Hollywood. What
did we expect?
woah... you guys ACTUALLY think that the OP and vast majority of readers here have NOT considered your responses as plausible reasons??
I just don't get it... people post these redundantly used snappy answers for stupid questions.. as if their response was somehow novel, somehow
OF COURSE popular subject matter will be consumed. This is supply and demand.
It has nothing to do with the fact that whether or not something is popular.. that increased messages and information about a certain concept
wouldn't be intentionally inflated or over produced.
ie: even though aliens are an interesting subject matter.. it doesn't negate the fact that the DoD can and would hypothetically prescribe and
initiate specific scripts to it's Hollywood partners in order to predictively program the collective unconscious in preparation for major history
changing world events on the near horizon.
it's not ONE or the OTHER... it'sa both .. obviously .. otherwise nobody would pay attention to concepts and subject matter they didn't enjoy.
there's also artificial consent.. paying viewers or would be viewers to artificially pump up false- popularity for a product... ie: online reviews..
awards.. etc... jsut so the public has a positive bias for the movie beforehand..
this is just as easily shown in models being hired to dance around in the audience for a new up and comming boy band..being payed to be audience
members worshipping the band and it's super cool new song (which may actually be the crappiest music in the world) .. nevertheless .. the models and
actors jumping around in the audience "sell" the song and create an atmosphere of 'wow' for succeptable minds to follow and join in on the
consuming of said product.. some of the models may HATE the music.. but they do it for money in these hard times...
same thing with hyping all these stupid and disgusting zombie movies and tv shows... "oooh walking dead voted number one show in the world" ..
disgusting barbaric horrific scenes of people eating each other's faces off.. yeah i'm sure we all love that.. that's artificially blow up
popularity if i've ever seen it.. the whole zombie trend is artificially popularized and thus BECOMES popular.. this is manipulated capitalism at
it's core.. and it's subject matter that is being put there ON PURPOSE for THE VERY REASON that (like it or not) it's GOING TO HAPPEN IN A BIO
ATTACK FROIM AL QUAEDA... and i'm sick of all these ufo alien invasion movies.. BORING.. same thing over and over.. but it's being made FOR A
REASON.. because its GOING TO BE MADE TO HAPPEN...
same with people's DNA mutating and getting super powers after dec 21 this yr....
laugh it up fuzzballs.. but when it happens' you'll remember this post...
o wait no you'll just be like "no i'm too clever for that.. i would have figured it our by now".. lol.. and you'll think it's still just a
coincidence that you're living in a post-alien annihilated wasteland with zombies chasing you and super heroes saving you... you'll STILL think
you're the one in the know with all the clever super original skeptic answers... and it's just alll a coincidence...
