Welcome to Show #20!
Guest: Sandra Bruckner, ISN News
Sandra runs the indepth and informative online resource ISN News: The Zocalo Today, currently keeping Babylon 5 fans updated on where their favorite B5 cast and crew members can be found in current projects.
She tells us all about how she became involved with B5, starting from the hard copy fan letters through the news updates on the website today. Sandra also relates her times spent on the B5 sets over the years, covering B5 cast appearances at conventions, keeping track of the B5 fan club sales, being an extra in “Objects at Rest”, and much, much more.
Next, Tim, Summer and Sandra engage in a roundtable discussion about where they feel Babylon 5 ranks all-time in SF television, past and present, and discuss how much B5 may have influenced current television projects.
Listener Feedback: Tim and Summer dive into emails: Susan puts forth a theory on how Marcus may have been a 30-year-old virgin; Chris tells us about the DVD for the Biggs/Carter Experience that used to be available from Pipetap Productions, the proceeds of which benefit Richard Biggs’ children.
This week’s voicemails include messages from Alejandro comments on “A Late Delivery from Avalon”, and wants to know why Delenn was portrayed as the Lady of the Lake; Alan in Dublin sends in an almost unintelligible message thanking us for producing the show; Ed from NJ sends his appreciation for the production values of the show, and wants a comment on Jerry Doyle’s pay-per-play podcast of his radio show.
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us at 206-338-2259, or email us and tell us what you think… and likely hear it played or read on the show. Please try to keep the voicemail comments as brief as possible.
