Welcome to Show #64!
Summer, Tim C and Tim A banter, and gee, I guess you really, really missed me!
Tim C and Summer both managed to score copies of Babylon 5 Script Book Volume 11, thanks to generous contributions from our listeners. It’s a lovely and much appreciated act, and we both truly thank you all.
We will also be receiving a review release of “The Lost Tales” DVD, so we will be providing you with a full review of the film and the DVD contents. Don’t hate us… we’re doing this for you, our listeners!
Deep Geeking: This episode revolves around geeking on “In the Shadow of Z’ha’dum”, a pivotal second season episode that remains a powerful episode to watch even after all these years.
We move from a casual observation that Morden, a dead man, has been seen doing business on the station, through a potential diplomatic rescue by the Centauri, through the borderline alienation of key station personnel, to an intervention by Delenn and Kosh, all to prevent an irate and obssessed Sheridan from breaking Morden and obtaining too much truth too soon about what the Shadows are and what they’re up to.
Listener Feedback: Just for the record, the FarPoint tag is officially spelled “boohkie”, all because Google kept pulling up websites for bookmakers. Make a note of it.
Edmund comments on the Shadows being behind the escalation of the Drazi’s green/purple conflict; Gary from Jacksonville sends a priority Gold Channel request for Summer’s return to the mic; Gary again, with yet another call for a Babylon Podcast Fan Show… Yikes?
Do you want to see any Babylon Podcast swag? If you’re interested in buying FarPoint Media podcast related swag, let us know. I definitely want to use the name “Sunhawks” as the team name for the purple and green Babylon Podcast football jerseys.
I don’t know think it would be a licensing infringement for using the name, but use of any Drazi logo probably would be. I’m still trying to find out who to talk to about that.
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.
Shameless related begging: Summer’s working to convince any publisher to do an essay 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.
There’s a box of Babylon 5 novels sitting here, books that were rescued from unknown fates at used bookstores in his area by Brad from PodCulture. The B5 library collection grows… if you have a request, send it in.
