There has been on and off rumors lately of a Xena reboot. I am pretty sure it’s closer to being “official” now but you never know about these things. Either way, it doesn’t take away from how much this series affected me when I was growing up. It was a beautiful thing to see this gorgeous, badass warrior on television — plus, having the show revolve around her friendship with another woman, Gabrielle. Although I full support the Xena x Gabrielle pairing, it is also refreshing to be able to look back and pinpoint a show that explores the relationship between two women in a setting that doesn’t involve the usual “silly, girls” scenarios.
I can go on and on about this show, but we’re here to look at pretty fanart. I present to you, this week’s Fanart GLEE!
Wholia comes back on the podcast to keep the Space Pirate Queen company in this episode. We talk about how even dinosaur toys aren’t allowed to be girls, various gender and race roles in current media and growing up Asian-American.
Who said the third in the series is the worst? Once again, we recorded a podcast with Legends Podcast and talked geek news and… reasons why these fellas need to pick a geek girlfriend. Fanfic Theatre: Lord of the Rings.
Many segments make a return this week, including Spider News (eight-legged hugs and kisses!), Weird Crush and the Ovaries Explosion Awards which were awarded to the Canadian Ryans. This episode is also dedicated to the Imperator Furiousa who we hope will rule us all during the apocalypse.
This week the girls discuss the future of virtual reality in our society, how it could be an amazing tool for education, and how there will probably be virtual reality day spas dedicated to giving you the perfect escape. Pretty much, which Channing Tatum movie would you like to be in? We also discuss Emma Watson’s incredible speech at the UN and how it is important not just for women, but for men as well.
