  2. A lecture by Robert J. Sawyer

    From TVO: BIG IDEAS - "Author Robert J. Sawyer explains how Hollywood's approach to science fiction, starting with George Lucas' Star Wars, has dulled the edge that made science fiction such a pertinent film genre. Sawyer dissects the problematic aspects of the original Star Wars film and shows how science fiction books continue to tackle difficult issues while their big screen counterparts take the easy road of big explosions and small ideas." - February 2008
