    Another "so bad it's good" episode. Ridiculously simple and ridiculous.

    № 34 LOST Part 2

    2011-10-23

    Skip

    Not as bad as its reputation, but mostly a rehash of previous topics like if "greatest show ever" is objective or subjective.

    № 33 The Divine Time Machine

    2011-10-09

    Skip

    Some great, thought-provoking questions, but not a stand-out episode.

    2011-06-19

    Don't listen for the recommendations, there are better episodes for that. But there are enough notable and funny moments that it's worth a listen.

    One of the funniest episodes, with the all-time great moment of Ben singing the Avatar closing credits song.

    № 14 Clones Revisited

    The first "Bad but Great" episode. It's a silly premise and a silly discussion with some of the funniest moments of Season 1.

    № 10 Duel of the Fates

    2011-03-30

    Essential

    Time Loop (№ 379)

    № 9 Attack of the Clones

    2011-03-25

    Essential

    Time Loop (№ 87)

    "The Dark Knight on Trial" was the first iconic episode; "Attack of the Clones" is the first great episode. Prepare to have your mind expanded and your beliefs challenged.

    № 4 Tolkien Vs. Lewis – The Ultimate Smackdown

    2011-01-30

    Skip

    Instead watch the highlights on the YouTube video. Ben at least later regrets doing this show in a debate format; both hosts were more focused on winning than on discussion. This doesn't make it a bad episode, but it could have been better.

    № 3 The Dark Knight On Trial

    2011-01-24

    Essential

    Time Loop (№ 77)

    The first iconic episode and a classic example of the intersection between pop culture and Christianity that the SFC does so well.

    № 2 I Want to Believe

    2011-01-16

    Listen

    Time Loop (№ 125)

    This first "fringe theology" episode includes topics that will be major themes of the podcast, such as the scope of the Bible and what is compatible with Christianity.

    Listen
