An intelligent and humorous review of each B7 episode, served up nicely by two obviously genuine fans. Very entertaining and informative stuff is this. I can’t recommend any more highly, compulsive listening , thanks guys.
Not expendable not stupid and (hopefully) not going
A Very thorough review of each episode, cast profiles, trivia, head cannon retcons, it’s more stuffed than the Liberator’s wardrobe. Servalan would be proud!
Great in depth critiques and perfect rewatch podcast
I love how they talk about the themes of the show and the building relationships between the characters, whilst also not being afraid to talk about the show’s downfalls when they are apparent. They sound like English teachers dictating to a class (I mean that in a good way, fun teachers). Overall very enjoyable
