UFO: A Classic Overestimation
The British sci-fi series UFO
ran for one season in 1970, presenting a richly produced future where people in shiny outfits ran a well-equipped secret organization dedicated to fending off alien invasions of the Earth. The lavishly produced show featured lots of computers and futuristic design elements--but it was supposed to take place in the early 1980s, making it far too optimistic about how technologically advanced human beings would be by then. Still, there's no denying that sideburn implants were achievable in the '80s, as anticipated.
