I signed up for the lecture and am so looking forward to it. Star Wars has always been more pulp science fiction than science fiction, or rather, perhaps, fantasy, so I imagine you'll get quite a bit of feedback.

Saw Lecture
It was a fascinating lecture, I was gripped for the hour and a half. With a bit more understanding of the influence, I can't wait to re-watch Star Wars again.
