In today’s installment of everyone’s favorite sitcom Gary the Cylon, Gary gets a surprise visit and Starbuck learns a valuable lesson about bravery (namely, don’t be a pussy).
Frankly, I don’t know how there got to be 15 of these things before I heard about ’em. Having not seen the original BSG, I can only assume this one was cut out of an episode where Starbuck was marooned with a Cylon and made a truce with it, but the rest are taken from the entirety of the series. If you’re looking for a way to kill an hour — like Cylons kill humans — you could do a helluva lot worse than marathoning the entirety of Gary. Much thanks to Roger F for the tip.

Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
