It certainly wasn't the most accurate map.

This may have been part of the joke. The ongoing joke throughout that scene was that the presenter made bad, over-the-top, sappy presentations. And that was a bad presentation if I've ever seen one;).

i did notice that australia wasnt there. i was watching this episode with a mate, he didnt notice. I wasnt very happy.

i did watch Remnants and im not surprised that the only way an Australian can get onto Atlantis is in a hallucination.


All american produced shows seem to disregard us aussies

Didn't think of that, just glad that Sweden was on the map, and that Rodney mentioned Sweden. Im not sure if he was mocking the size of our country or if he actually knew we are a leading country when it comes to being environmentally friendly. =P


Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, im Swedish!!

The 3d globe that rotated around to show the world drying up was accurate, but the 2d map didn't have any of the Australasian and surrounding regions on it if any. Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Phillipines Australia, New Zealand and all the islands in the pacific weren't on it. Pretty poor tbh, I mean its a rather large omission. Or maybe they were saying those areas don't have to help fight global warming :O

We were there. Not in the initial bit, but we were there.

Lol. Well we should. It's warm enough here. I feel like there's a huge hole in the ozone layer right above our house. Damn it's hot here today.

I have a lot of aussie friends and typically they get upset over very minor details.. its not like they went out of their way to say "By the way Australia ISNT on the map! Look look! Its not a joke, this wasnt our way of showing some humor about the competence of the person doing the presentation. We put this design in place just to show everyone we dont care about Australia!"

Not everything centers around Australia LOL

- On a side note.. what do you mean ALL American produced shows disregard aussies? If there isnt an Australian in the show you are being disregarded? LOL

Just curious

Maybe it wouldn't have been as noticeable if they had him stand in front of where it should be.

Here is the screen shot for those who missed it.

I think they're trying to prove that the bunch of them are idiots.

First, no Australasia then while the major oceans are black, the seas and lakes are white. Which proves that Kramer Industries and Tunney are idiots, lol.

I totally agree.. the entire episode was trying to show how stupid the smart people can be.. I dont think the map was set up to offend people and to show them that the producers and writers dont care about them..

thats just being overly sensitive LOL

Uh, I thought it was showing the 'effects of global warming'. Perhaps some of the 'smaller' land masses sank? Then again, some small islands are included on that map too, but those could be mountains... :)

Yes, a lot is missing.. (or "immerged", due to the melting of the ice from the Arctic, Antartica, Greenland...)
Australia & New-Zealand, Greenland, Great Britain (Ireland is there!), Japan & other asian islands, Madagascar, the Tuvalu islands, etc...

For your pleasure, I found images of Australia in this episode:

but first, the proof you were right:

The Aussies got enough exposure in 'Remnants', I suppose. :P
Besides, the cgi necessary to put Australia and the UK on there would have taken away from the killer cgi used for the super cool desert building and those awesome tornadoes! :mckay:

My mistake.

OR the aussys asked the map-makers to remove them from all maps, becouse they wernt included by the rest of the world enoughf,
some thing like that

Because Australians like to feel included, what with being so far from everything else.

At about 11 minutes in, Tunney is doing his corny presentation and after he does the earth on his hand thing it flashes out to a map of the entire earth...

Have a look at it... is anything missing... perhaps... Australia????

...and New Zealand too
