I think you guys confused the gender politics of the time of The Cage with Roddenberry's own ideas about women. Not all TV shows of the period portrayed competent women as non-feminine.
That is a definite possibility. Do you have any specific shows or characters in mind?
And, seriously, you blow off Where No Man Has Gone Before? This at least merited some discussion about Shatner's first appearance as Kirk and the first appearance of Spock as the logical one.
I thought we did talk about that? Well, it's been a while, and I'm fairly certain we do talk about it at some point.
Thanks for the feedback though, I appreciate it!
