Podcast 187: All Of This Has Happened Before...

This week we finally put an end to Joey's misery about the story of BSG. And yes, it is better than Lost. I think every tv finale is going to be compared to Lost for quite a while, because of how terrible it was. BSG had a comparatively very good finale where they wrap up most of the big questions. But more, as a retelling of an already beloved tv show, it carved out its own place within SciFi history. This tv podcast covers the finale of Battlestar Galactica Season 4.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Lent: Find your new vice
    Joey's Culture Corner: Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds
    Facebook Find of the Week: Listener Fishhead - What Tree Rings Sound Like Played on a Record Player
    Top 5 Favorite: TV Finales
    Adventures in Republican
    Joey thinks the idea of a lap dance is creepy.
    Don't throw guns.
    The secret of the Opera House is revealed.
    I don't want to give up my comfortable life.
    Did Gaius actually ruin everything for humanity or actually save it?
    Music by Shayna Zaid

Here is the rating that we gave for the episodes in Podcast 187: 2hr 18min 14sec:
Daybreak
Peter: SciFi - 10 Television - 8
Joey: SciFi - 8 Television - 8
