Star Maidens (1976)


TV series of Anglo-German origin, set in the “present” Earth of the 1970’s. A planet from another solar system drifts into Earth’s system and is detected by some scientists who investigate. The surface of this planet is no longer habitable and the residents have moved to a high-tech underground city. The society is ruled by women, who of course, are all beautiful. Men are considered mentally inferior and are divided into two categories: the “adequately intelligent” who are selected by women to act as their personal “domestics” for household chores, and the remainder who are forced to perform menial labor under the supervision of female guards. The guards are attired nicely in visored helmets, boots, hot pants and elbow-length gloves which are used to control the men through some sort of apparent force. Scientists from Earth (two men and one woman) find their way to the planet and are forced to take their stated places in society. One man is chosen as a domestic, the less fortunate man is forced to work on a city maintenance crew and the woman is assigned a white-collar job. The aliens also visit Earth clandestinely in their tear-drop shaped ship. Some episodes bluntly address the issue of unfair discrimination based on sex.

Sold as a 3-DVD-R or VHS set.
