15: Deep Thoughts About Battlestar Galactica

December 5, 2023

Epic space battles + philosophy and ethics + human drama + Cylons = KICKASS TELEVISION

On this week’s episode, Tracie shares her Deep Thoughts about the 2004-2009 reboot of Battlestar Galactica. She tells Emily how she got sucked into the show and resurfaced weeks later, a la Portlandia, how the story undercut its own feminist bona fides by resorting to misogynistic tropes, and why the monotheism of the skinjobs is so durn fascinating to our resident Torah scholar.

Join us as we talk about the big questions and little dramas of one of the best television shows of all time. So say we all!
