I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about science fiction television and film, and yet until yesterday I'd never heard of Star Maidens, the story of planet Medusa, ruled by women, and the disaster that befalls their civilization. Amazons in peekaboo jumpsuits and kinky boots rule over their oppressed men, two of whom decide to "Escape to Paradise" (the name of the first episode) by stealing a rocket and setting off for Earth.
Enjoy the madness. The entire 13-episode series can be viewed on YouTube over the course of one long, baffling, entertaining evening.
