This is a pretty cool post-apocalyptic chase short that Fox are apparently interested in turning into a series.

What makes it REALLY cool though is that the drone/missile things chasing the guy on the bike are not actually science-fiction. These things have actually been made and tested as parts of a missile defence system (they're called "Multiple Kill Vehicles", or MKVs), that was scrapped in 2009.

Check out this video of a test run, it's really quite amazing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9mNNA2gEF8

That seems like an awesome (and scary) addition to a SF setting...
