Popular culture

Breitbart thought it was pretty important. This article discusses it with regard to space.

I'd like to see a TV series that would be like "Bonanza on Mars" coming each week, before or after the Mars One reality show.

Colonists would be shown interacting in free trade with each other; Hoss and little Joe types trying various get rich schemes that fail. It would have plenty of drama showing the various ways people would use each of their one square kilometer Ponderosas to give their families a future. A farmers market in a huge underground shirtsleeve shopping mall would be where most of the action is. It would focus more on the community of families than on just one family. Perhaps they should call it, "Housewives of Barsoom city?"

I am looking forward to seeing Elysium.
