Some of you know Rilian studied at Oxford University through a study abroad programme almost four years ago. Today he interviews two fans of Lewis (including NarniaWebber LadyLiln) who talk about how studying in Oxford has been more than they ever dreamed as they discuss what it’s like literally walking the same paths as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. For information on the programme, go to or “Like” their Facebook page. UPDATE: A new video featuring Franklin along with his CS Lewis tutor, Dr. Michael Ward, is available here on YouTube.

Episode 80: ‘Dawn Treader’ Film Analysis, Part 7

Posted March 31, 2011 9:16 pm by Rilian 41 Comments

Running time: 56 minutes

Rilian and Dr. Ransom discuss the climax of the film with the Dawn Treader’s encounter with Dark Island and the sea serpent. Leaving aside the discussion of the undragonning until the next episode, Ransom and Rilian come at this scene with passion, energy and (naturally) silliness.

Retraction: In this episode, Rilian and Ransom mistakenly assume that Lucy replies to the MLG with “I want to be just like you” when in actuality her response is closer to “I think you should be just like you.” Due to the film no longer showing in our local theatres, we depend more and more upon memories and our notes as to what was said and done, and alas, these methods are not foolproof. We apologize for the error and will be using the DVD when it comes out to refresh our memories.
