Oi! Spaceman: Adventures in Media Criticism
Heinlein, Shakespeare, Math, and Sex (Warrior's Gate)

In this episode, Daniel and Shana finish up the E-Space Trilogy with a discussion of Warrior's Gate. And of course a story with the enslavement of an alien race has no particular political significance, right? Also: a discussion of non-determinism and Eastern philosophies, and a bit about the BDSM implications of Romana's torture scene.

Main Topic: Warrior's Gate. Anthropomorphic lions. Correction. Nothing political. Understanding E-space. Shana likes Daniel's notes. Revisiting Tom Baker. Great Romana moments. Shana doesn't like Lalla Ward. Tamm's eyebrows. How Romana leaves. Fucking the Tharil or Andred. Moving on to Adric. The representation of the teenager. K-9 the slave. "You have to talk louder than that." Daniel mentions Jurassic Bark. TV Logic. Farnham's Freehold. The Tharils. A Marxist reading. Diminishing the evils of slavery. The Sam Seeley. Masculinity. Much Ado About Nothing. Math or Sex? Non-deterministic action. The I Ching. Dick and the Tharils. Eastern mysticism. Tharils and Traflamadorians. How did they solve the plot? Abstract. Direction. Kubrick. Sex. Erotic horror. Shana tells an anecdote about Buddhism and Tennessee. The 80s. The origins of Oi! Spaceman. Next week: The Zygon Invasion/The Zygon Inversion.
