It's the exciting conclusion to our epic two-part episode! Last week we traveled across the universe with the sci-fi classic BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, and this week we're stuck on a stupid old Earth with GALACTICA 1980, the short-lived spin-off that couldn't decide if it was about time travel or super babies, and wound up stupider than a whole boxful of stupid.
Sure, it was ridiculous, but was GALACTICA 1980 really... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a deep dive into all the terrible decisions that made this BATTLESTAR GALACTICA follow-up one of the most ill-conceived tv shows in history, from the baffling plot points to the stock storylines and then, in the end, rather unexpectedly, one of the best episodes of sci-fi television... ever. Yes, really.
