Recs and Reactions

  • "If you only watch one vid, watch the one that opened our Premieres show, Charmax’s “Space Girl”"[1]
  • "I laughed and I cried. That's not hyperbole. I was totally crying by the end. It's just fantastic."[2]
  • "[...] it's a fascinating look at female characters through half a century of sci-fi and how far we've come, and in some cases, how far we haven't."[3]
  • "It's a history of women in science fiction and it is brilliantly executed. It starts off with black and white footage and then makes this seamless transition to colour that is brilliant to watch. [...] The music that its set to is integral to the vid and there are some fantastic sequences in this."[4]
  • "[...] a heartfelt celebration of women in science fiction going back to the 1950s, but it's also a wickedly critical piece of work, showing the problematic roles (and problematic outfits!) women have historically had in sci fi. The song choice is inspired, allowing all sorts of deliciously ironic juxtapositions. Funny, sad, exuberant, saucy."[5]
