Decorating Tips from Apollo and Starbuck

Battlestar Galactica ("Lost Planet of the Gods")
- aired on 09/24/78 and 10/01/78
There are roughly 15 minutes of Deleted / Expanded scenes that were filmed for the 2-part Battlestar Galactica story "Lost Planet of the Gods" - written by Glen A. Larson and Donald P. Bellisario; directed by Christian I. Nyby II.  These scenes are part of the Bonus Features of the BSG DVD and Blu-Ray releases.  Some of these scenes include (1) Serina piloting a shuttle into the Galactica landing bay - her first solo flight (2) Adama and Tigh ruminating on the nature of the Void (3) Adama's eloquent speech about the fall of Kobol (4) a longer version of Serina's death scene - all of these scenes are vastly superior to a truly bizarre scene at the beginning of Part 2 where Apollo and Starbuck inexplicably  "Fem it up" and swap decorating tips.  I'm not making this up - read on - this has my vote as the most excruciating scene of the entire series!:
