S1E1: “Saturday Night Fever” and the Transmitting Domain. Disco! White polyester suits! Gold chains! And, most of all, Travolta! The Transmitting instinctual domain is about display, passion, intensity, desire, and dreams, all of which are captured in this classic John Badham-directed crowd-pleaser starring John Travolta as Tony Manero, a hardware store clerk by day/disco king by night who yearns to make his mark on the world.
