Lizbeth Rewatches Battlestar Galactica — 1978: Lost Planet of the Gods, Part 1

My ranting on this post got a little bit long over the *mumble mumble* weeks I wrote this. So, it's in two parts...

Well, here we are for yet another edition of Lizbeth Rewatches Battlestar Galactica — 1978.

Tonight's episode: 'Lost Planet of the Gods, Part 1'
Episode Subtitle: Sweet Mother of Jesus, Stop Calling Them "Girls"

Re-watching "Lost Planet of the Gods, Part 1" after many, many years of not watching it was a voyage in self-discovery.

As in, "My, how my tastes have changed."

Where once I had Starbuck-love, I now have Starbuck-meh.

Where once I was Boomer-who, I now am Boomer-awesome.

Where once I had Apollo-meh, I now have Apollo-love.

And yes, Adama is still as crazy as a shit house rat.

And as for the 1978 Battlestar's attitudes about women in uniform, Christ, where can I possibly start?
