October 17, 2019

Ladies and gentlemen, we hope you've braced yourself, popped some corn, and got a cold one (or two) ready... because we're back to go full-on deep geek with our favorite episodes from Battlestar Galactica Season 3.0.

We both picked our favorite three episodes from the first half of the third season and run them down with all our thoughts therein. We learn some more about Fat Apollo, how screwed up Starbuck is, how many votes does a circle need for a death sentence, and more people heading out the airlock!
