You used to have to make a choice. Is it a serialized television show, or is it a stand-alone or procedural? We were wildly influenced by The X-Files. Even when we created Fringe, it was the same thing. It’s the gold standard of all gold standards, in genre television, and it was so wonderful because you felt so much for those characters.
It is learning how to stand alone, unpopular and sometimes reviled, and how to make common cause with those other identified as outside the structures, in order to define and seek a world in which we can all flourish. It is learning how to take our differences and make the strengths. For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house.
Woman must come of age by herself. This is the essence of ‘coming of age’-to learn how to stand alone. She must learn not to depend on another, nor to feel she must prove her strength by competing with another.

Sappho is a great poet because she is a lesbian, which gives her erotic access to the Muse.
