Slate's last episode of Season 5 is marking the end. The End of the World, that is. But we’re not talking about near death experiences or stories where something almost happened to Earth but we were saved by Bruce Willis on a suicide mission. Today we’re talking about the end of humanity: movies where there isn’t a soul alive at the end. Maybe Jesus came and smote all the non believers, maybe a rogue comet or star blows us all up. Maybe the world gets covered in garbage or maybe it’s just the plain old zombie apocalypse. Either way the Earth’s going down somehow eventually, but at least we’ll have fun talking about it today as we discuss The End of the World.
