Don’t miss Wil Wheaton’s great show intro, plus lots of fun — this week’s re-watch episode, some Firefly, and, of course, a tiny bit of Mass Effect. Highlights: we question the Galactica’s sad lack of sunglasses (V had ’em!), compare BSG’s radiation monitors to Magnadoodles, re-mourn Kat’s departure, discuss a listener’s contention that Starbuck doesn’t really sleep around, suffer through Chuck rambling about some Heinlein short story, hear Audra’s Madonna/Evita impression, listen to Sean’s answer to a great listener question (landspeeder, transformer, or green woman), guess what “job” Anders runs off to do after his reveal, run down the pros and cons of offing one’s Cylon self just for weight loss, and bitch about producers’ decision to revive Kitt — the original Cylon — as a Mustang.
I wanted to comment on the Radiation patches they were wearing and the comment on radiation exposure being cumulative …
If in the BSG cannon radiation exposure was cumulative and not reversible then Helo should have NO business being out there … how long was he in fall out covered Caprica?
Also I believe that Helo, Sharon/Athena, and Starbuck all were using “anti-radiation” meds … what they were is pointedly not explained and probably for good reason.
Just an answer for Sean from a “from-the beginning” lurker…the movie was I think “Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone”. Add this to the list of resposes you already have no doubt!
