So, with the rise of Brainbin's excellent "That Wacky Redhead" timeline, it seems that there has been a steady stream of popular culture-oriented timelines set in motion or in the planning stages on this board. Since the readership for the stories usually overlap, I figured I'd make a thread to document all of these projects and provide links, so access is generally easier. Timelines currently active include: That Wacky Redhead, by Brainbin -POD: In 1966, Lucille Ball, of I Love Lucy fame, has another dream of her late friend Carole Lombard, who convinces her to quit acting for good and focus on producing. As a result, Desilu Productions is not sold, leading to some interesting consequences... The Power and the Glitter!, by vultan (yours truly) -POD: A more politically and socially chaotic early 1990's leads to 20th Century Fox greenlighting production of a film based on the graphic novel Watchmen, slated for release in 1994... The Culture Club: Alternate Pop Culture, by Captain Joel -POD: A medley of different projects, the first one being an exploration on a different history of the Flash Gordon franchise (note: other members are encouraged to contribute short ideas) An Alternate Rise of the Blockbuster, by ColeMercury -POD: In 1974, George Lucas decides to delay production on Star Wars and take up his good friend Francis Ford Coppola's offer to direct Apocalypse Now... Let's Broaden Our Minds- Cultural mini-TLs, by MaskedPickle -POD: Like "The Culture Club", a collection of different ideas It should also be mentioned that his timeline "A Giant Sucking Sound: a President Perot TL", right here, includes some neat alternate pop culture ideas... For Want Of a Banister, by Peelitebkearns -POD: A rebirth of radio in the United Kingdom during the 1990's! Earthquake Weather: Pop Culture & Tech Goes Weirder, by Electric Monk -POD: An earthquake in 1986 Tokyo leads to major changes in pop culture, technology and videogames from James Bond to Star Trek to Nintendo…. A Different Path Home, by statichaos -POD: Genevieve Bujold stays on Star Trek:Voyager for two more episodes... Dirty Laundry: An Alternate 1980s, by Andrew T -POD: Don Henley's solo career fails before it even starts in the early 1980's, leading to a radically different decade, from pop culture to politics... ... Timelines currently in planning include: Early Buffy The Vampire Slayer Project , by Kalvan -POD: Earlier Buffy television series. ... Timelines on hiatus include: Cronus Invictus: An Alternate Console Wars, by Thande (on hiatus) -POD: The deal Sony and Nintendo were working on regarding a CD-based console pans out in the late 1980's, leading to a very different video game landscape in the 1990's... --- So, yes. This is a collection of the TV/movie/other pop culture buffs on the board. This thread can also be used to ask questions on pop culture alternate history in general (for example, someone asks, "was it true Ronald Reagan was considered for the lead role in Casablanca?", to which I would reply "no, that's just a rumor). Also, if you have an idea for a popular culture timeline but want help, feel free to ask here. I would also encourage authors of more standard timelines (ie: focus on politics, military, etc) to ask the people here how they think the events of their timelines would affect pop culture. Now, ask/discuss away!
