Babylon Podcast #76: Interview with Bruce Boxleitner

Welcome to Show #76!

Tim, Summer, and Jeffrey dive right into “Lost Tales” celebration month, and forget any previous plans for separate episodes geeking on TLT… we’re going into overdrive coverage of The Lost Tales, and there will be spoilers contained in all the August episodes, so be forwarned. If you want to avoid spoilers, then skip these next few shows until you’re all caught up!

Jeffrey gives us a recap of the Los Angeles Best Buy release party event, attended by Tracy Scoggins, Bruce Boxleitner, Peter Woodward and Doug Netter. He obtained plenty of video and audio footage covering the event, so stay tuned for clips!

Bruce Boxleitner

Interview: Bruce Boxleitner joins us to talk about his experiences filming The Lost Tales, and doing promotions for it at the adventure now known as Comic-Con.

Bruce recounts working with Peter Woodward, Tracy Scoggins and newcomer Keegan MacIntosh and the fun of portraying an older, wiser and more sage President Sheridan; the bane that was the sock puppets; and the resurgence of interest in TRON, even all these years (and advancements in CG) later.

Fan Cast: The Three-Edged Sword Episode 7: “Word Gets Out” (TS: 43:34-49:19)

Babylon 5 Information Gathering: Can we and should we mount a Babylon 5 propaganda campaign, in order to get sales of The Lost Tales to the point where Warner really really wants to greelight more volumes of TLT? Let us know…

Are you interested in listening to more Babylon 5 audio drama? Voices of Babylon is coming soon, and maybe you can get your own story out, too.

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!

  1. Walter Gass says:

    The Lost Tales was like watching a really good looking Babylon 5 stage play. I enjoyed it in two ways – as a return to the Babylon 5 universe. And I enjoyed the stories being told. Sheridan is a classic character. Great stuff.

    Thanks for another great episode.

  2. Hey guys, thanks for playing the promo for Geek Cred, I really appreciate it!

  3. Andrew Swallow says:

    You are preaching to the converted. It may be time to target the friends of the converted.

  4. Neil Ottenstein says:

    I am a couple of months behind on the regular podcasts, so I really appreciate you doing a separate podcast for this. I agree with most of what you guys said about the Lost Tales. For some strange reason, Jeffrey doesn’t seem to sound the same as in the past. Did his voice change recently?

  5. David from Memphis says:

    I think it’s because he’s not on the phone.

  6. Yes, Jeffrey’s finally started puberty. We’re all very happy for him.

  7. Neil Ottenstein says:

    OK. I just scrolled down the screen to see that Jeffrey’s talking from his very own studio. What a difference – he really sounds like a completely different Vorlon. It’s like instead of his voice coming through hyperspace it is now coming through quantumspace.

  8. Can we have a Bi-monthly podcast with Bruce?
    He seems to have more than enough content, and explains things we might not understand to boot!
