Welcome to Show #34!
There’s no Jeffrey this week, so Tim and Summer jump full force into discussion about Season 2, and all the changes heralded by the arrival of Captain John Sheridan in “Points of Departure”.
We talk about Sheridan, his charisma, his tactical sense, and the effects of his arrival on all the station staff. We also begin to get a sense of Sheridan’s character by scratching the surface of his conspiracy theorist heart, his integrity and quick wits under pressure.
We also touch a bit on Minbari with human DNA, the plots within plots of the crew of the Trigati, a renengade Minbari warship, and the appearance of Lt. Warren Keffer as a semi-regular character, along with a little bit of Robert Rusler trivia (his birthday was the day we recorded this episode, September 20th).
We also argue a bit about who knows what when, and if new incoming Grey Council members learn all the council secrets when they join or not.
If you want to listen to us live as we record episodes, that feature will be be available starting September 6th, 9pm EDT/6pm PDT. You can find all of the necessary info here, including instructions on how to join the IRC chatroom for live interactive feedback from the studio.
Listener Feedback: George emails in to tell us that the crowd present during the announcement of “The Coming of Shadows” as the Hugo Award winner garnered a larger crowd response and noise than the crowd present when “Serenity” won the Hugo this year.
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.
