Re: Momentary/Meandering/Meditations (Mandom like the morgue

I just finished rewatching the BSG miniseries, which led me to this question: What would your top 5 episodes of Battlestar Galactica be?

For me, it'd be Hand of God, Bastille Day, Scar, 33, and Daybreak (I, for one, enjoyed the ending, even if it was a bit of a cop-out).

I see the audiophiles are out in force: What are your views on the Apple lossless format (.m4a)? Most of my library is in that format due to my use of iTunes and an iPod, but I wonder if I'm missing out on anything with regards to the sound.
