Babylon Podcast #71: The Fall of Night (Season 2)

Welcome to Show #71! It’s our longest show yet. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Tim and Summer welcome Jeffrey back, and apparently he’s lost his underwear. Or something like that. Tim gives us a report that JMS has turned in a draft of the eagerly anticipated Silver Surfer movie, and how he might not have as much time on his hands to devote to upcoming volumes of The Lost Tales.

“The Fall of Night”

Deep Geeking: This week, Tim and Summer talk about “The Fall of Night”. Once again, the geeking runs long. There really is too much here to contain in one tiny podcast, but we do try to cover all bases, including a dive into the deeper end of theology when Mike wonders whether the vast pantheon of Centauri Gods means that as a race they don’t have enough faith to have seen Kosh’s manifestation of a divine being.

“The Fall of Night”

Yes, we forgot to talk about Keffer and his untimely yet domino-toppling demise.

Keffer is gone now, but his exploits and his sacrifice will not be forgotten, at least not for a few more episodes into Season 3. As with everything else, it’s the thought that counts.

Listener Feedback: Remember, the FarPoint tag is officially spelled “boohkie”, all because Google kept pulling up websites for bookmakers. Make a note of it. And we really really start to plant the seeds of temptation to get Tim to move to Phoenix, thanks to Valerie’s bliss.

Are you waiting for a Babylon 5 audio drama? Let us know…

Summer would also like to find the long versions of the B5 promos that ran on TNT prior to Season 5, the ones narrated by Keith David… anyone have any old VHS copies of S5 they taped from TNT?

Jerseys Are Go! Interested? Let us know if you’d place a pre-order!

Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us, 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.

    Here is the youtube version of the long tnt promo for Babylon 5

  2. RE: What Londo Saw…

    JMS said Londo “Saw what he saw” which was nothing.
    JMS said that Londo was touched by darkness (Da Shadows!) and thus couldn’t see Kosh.


  3. I am glad that “Cooking with Kosh” was so well received.

  4. ChristopherNYC says

    Londo was touched by the Shadows and therefore could no longer see the light.

  5. Just found your podcast last week and I’m soooo psyched to catch up. I had set aside my DVDs to give B5 a rest for awhile, but now I’m ready to start watching again and sync up to your review schedule.

    Thanks for the effort to keep the spirit of B5 alive!

    P.S. I wouldn’t be surprised if our government includes the film Armageddon in the phychological warfare it conducts. Heavy metal music plus Ben Affleck 24/7 would send any enemy into a rage. 🙂
