I seem to recall seeing some movie in a post-apocalypse world that was desert and there were these huge bugs à la Starship Troopers but bigger and they were trying to outrun them. I just have this single image and for the life of me cannot remember anything else except it was sometime in the early 90's or so.

Anybody know what movie this may have been? Or was it on TV?

Wasn't The Surviviors a Terry Nation series? I want to watch it after watching Blake's Seven for the first time, a couple of years ago.

The Death of Grass is another that i'd like to read.

Our very own Jo Zebedee's "Into A Blood Red Sky" is kind of apocalyptic, but the apocalypse plays second fiddle to the story. Well worth reading, though.

Anyone remember watching Threads in the 80's? What a terrifying movie that was.


Yes, and the book was written by him. It's conceivable that the ending of the book was the original ending of the tv series, which then got expanded/bloated into 3 series. I thought all 3 seasons were really interesting to watch; very slow paced by today's standards though.
