Babylon Podcast #37: Listener Feedback

Welcome to Show #37!

Tim, Summer and Jeffrey discuss the bit of news that’s been trickling out about the pre-production status of “Babylon 5: The Lost Tales”, but we may have to wait until November for filming to begin before getting solid info to speculate on and dream about. Also for today, we have another Listener Feedback Extravaganza on tap this week… sit back and enjoy the geeking.

Listener Feedback: Starting out with comments and emails: Casey on what new Grey Council members are told after they join; Jim Carr on the details of Sinclair’s assignment to Minbar after Santiago’s assassination, as told from the novel “To Dream in the City of Sorrows”; PFerg muses on Psi Corps using mindwipes to create a willing and submissive army of minions.

For voicemails, Zack Ricks from Geek Survival Guide apologizes for what could be construed as a disparaging B5 fan comment; Jarsto has several comments on time loops, Vorlons and how they play with others; Gabriel in LA comments on the impact of the good guys failing to save the day in “Chrysalis”; Ty(?) from Oregon on Vorlon agendas during the Earth-Minbari War; John wants to know if the we had any comparisons of B5 to the new BSG, which leads to some interesting revelations about shows having the staying power to compel people to look forward to multiple viewings; CA in Phoenix with two messages on mindwipes and possible time constraints for the procedure; Josh on the time travel paradoxes; how Draal got the time vortex open. Daniel (IronEagle) chimes in with a final email about what he’s spent to jumpstart his Babylon 5 addiction.

For those who want to join in the fun of listening to the live feed, follow the instructions listed here to listen to us as we record, catching the show before the edited version goes out on the podcast. You can also go to the IRC chatroom at, channel #babylonpodcast, and join with the other folks listening in live and giving us live feedback as we go.

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.

  1. Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffrey – watching countless hours of a tv show is becoming more and more the norm these days. With the success of DVD more people I know are watching entire seasons in a very short time span. And yeah Summer – I totally did the whole Lord of the Rings series one day. I had a lot of people over who joined me too.


  2. Guards armed with shotguns? In Canada?

    At best, they’re armed with good manners!

    “Excuse me, please. You’re going to please step away from the executive producer, please. Don’t force me to ask politely a second time, please!”

  3. B5 fans and Vampires: All you’d have to do is throw a box set after it. Their faith in doing the right thing is what got Sheridan/Delenn/et al there in the end. Not to mention their faith that they could get the job done, and our faith that they’d get the story told!

    And in the end (no pun intended), we all remember JMS’s giant [a href=”]”middle finger”[/a] to all the nay-sayers, right? 😉

  4. D’Oh! Wrong code. That link should be:

  5. Well…to add my two cents worth to the discussion of the B5 holy priest in the effort to turn undead, how about the ritual Ranger Bucket consecrated to the Vorlon God, Boogee?
