Welcome to Show #46!
Stream of Consciousness Chat: Robin Atkin Downes (“Byron”)
Jeffrey sends out his heartfelt thanks to all the fans who responded to our call for donations to Pat Tallman’s “Be A Santa” charity program. The successful fruits of that effort went to make Christmas a little happier for the children of Penny Lane.
Jeff also tells us what he can about “The Lost Tales” progress, relaying some of what Bruce Boxleitner could tell us about the filming and working with everyone again, and how completely impressed he was by the script and everything about his experience climbing back into the Babylon 5 universe. This DVD is so going to rock!We present for your entertainment and edification a rather interesting and amusing chat with Robin Atkin Downes, during his and Pat Tallman’s meandering search for an Italian restaurant.
It’s an interactive slice of life in Los Angeles, and words truly cannot describe the experience. Don’t worry… we’ll get Robin back, later, when he’s less distracted.
Listener Feedback: Jarsto really calls in and wanted to hear more from Kim Holly about Peter Woodward’s leather pants in “Crusade”; Gary comments on Show #44 with a Keffer tidbit; Doug comments on Show #44 with some detail on one reason why The Cortez may have run afoul of a Shadow vessel.
Haiku: This week, Hilary’s haiku pays honor to Cmdr Susan Ivanova. But we still had to explain it to Michael before he remembered.
We so need a B5 holiday season collection of quotes and song variations.
Shameless plug: Summer contributed an essay to the essay collection, So Say We All: An Unauthorized Collection of Thoughts and Opinions on Battlestar Galactica, now available at your local bookstore and at Amazon.com.
Shameless related begging: Summer’s also really hoping to convince the publisher to eventually do a collection on Babylon 5. If you’d be interested in buying one if they did do a B5 collection, let Summer know, either here in comments, or over in the Babylon Podcast forums.
We are still considering doing a separate B5 Fan Tales segment in the future, so send us those favorite anecdotes of yours.
