Sex & Stereotype in Marco Polo



Love Netflix's Marco Polo or hate it, I'm over at Word and Film today with my take on the series and how Kublai Khan's various women stack up against, say... Daenerys Targaryen.

P.S.--Benedict Wong makes a pretty rockin' Kublai.

Not that I know of, Dolorah!

We're about 6 episodes in, now -- it is DEFINITELY hypersexualized, no question. But, I'm enjoying it otherwise -- and kind of pretending it isn't supposed to be historical.

Entertainment has always been one of the leading sectors of daily life.
