Welcome to Show #21!
No guest interview this week, and no Jeffrey either, so Tim and Summer decide to run wild with B5 geeking.
First up, episode discussion about “By Any Means Necessary”. Tim and Summer revel in how well the A and B stories tie in together, and delve into whether or not the B story could have been the better choice for the A story. They also discuss what the intended political repercussions for Sinclair might have been had he stayed around, or whether we’ve already seen what was going to happen.
Next, Tim, Summer dive into “Signs and Portents”, technically the first of the WHAM episodes. The mysterious Mr Morden arrives with a mission in mind, and much speculation abounds concerning his selection criteria, and what exactly happened in that hallway with Kosh.

Listener Feedback: Tim and Summer dive into emails and comments: Walter from LA agrees with commentary on B5 being the battering ram that opened the door for other scifi shows with arcs and characterization; Arioch asks about cast photos for the voices of The Babylon Podcast;
This week’s voicemail is a message from Greg from Galvin Australia comments on the comic that tells the story of how Sinclair and Garibaldi first met on Mars, and the use of Ivanova wallpapers. Summer would also like to know where in the world Babylon 5 is still airing.
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call, 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.
