Slavery – it is a frightening word with terrifying implications, yet, there is more slavery now than at other times in the world.
there as been an estimated 104,000,000,000 – hundred and 4 billion humans – homo sapiens over the human history of the world, which is not much of the world’s history.
there are currently over 7 billion – so now to be a one in a million person means you’ve got enough people for a conference.
Spartacus – a special effective intensive, most of the show was created in computer 4 season show.
The lead actor died and was replaced and Lucy Lawless, whom I was watching it for, dies at the end of the third season.
Xena Warrior Princess – choppy socky Physics Defying Gals in leather and chains with swords.
Battlestar Galactica – Lucy is the Cylon with the deepest religious fixation.
Spartacus – Lucy is a Domina of a Gladiator Factory, surviving the 1st revolt only to become crazy religious.
Watching the series felt a lot like watching something rated X and the sex/orgies contrasted with the fighting scenes became just so much boring and tedious background to actual character arcs and political plotting.
slave, indentured servant, social classes that are rigid to wage slavery…I see only a slippery slope difference, a magnitude more of title than entitlements.
Star Wars returned Hollywood back to blockbusters, and spun off all the technologies now made to make CGI movies and tv shows.
The camera eye is untethered by the machinery, to reveal everything short of the actual stench of fear sweat.
in a comfortable room with the distance of the time period and the understanding of watching fiction, rated X, such as it is.
sex scenes and even fight scenes rendered as plot pauses… pretty people doing terrible things and lacking the charm to get away with it – masters are always confused when slaves chose their own fates, not finding the master’s life and world as rewarding as one of their own.
Haves and the Have Nots…. the world balance tips, as lessons require repeating over time, because people learn history without understanding it.
