Babylon Podcast #80: Lost Tales Feedbackapalooza

Welcome to Show #80!

We’re running a little behind because of Dragon*Con Recovery Syndrome.

Jeffrey is back home in LA, and Summer reminds him that the desert in Phoenix is really hot, and he has to come visit in it, but Tim the Younger promises to take him out to keep hydrated. Jeffrey also assures us that he survived his encounter with military training runs in Fort Knox, with no major or minor injuries to report. Tracy Scoggins scored a movie gig, so she was unable to join us this evening… but she promised to talk to us when she’s got a free moment.

Babylon 5: The Lost Tales

Listener Feedback: “The Lost Tales” seems to have brought out many comments from the listeners, and we address a bunch of them here… and in case it wasn’t apparent: Spoilers are contained herein!

Molokov from Australia submits a listener review of “The Lost Tales”… we could use more of these.

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…

Summer still needs 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? Specifically, the :30 spots, one featuring Ivanova and the other G’Kar… they were part of the series of ads TNT ran promoting the addition of B5 to their lineup.

Jerseys Are Go! (really… we’re still moving forward with these!) 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.

  1. Katie from Sydney says

    You were after a definition of schmick – the one given here is fairly accurate to my understanding but only the top 2 entries.

    The main points of that being:
    “Descriptive word, usually depecting a person or thing. If referring to a person, theres Lots of confidence, and an aura of almost detachment. In general, Means very suave, very smooth, ultra-cool.”


    “I say this in Australia to mean anything sick, cool, tight or excellent. Usually the item is new, shiny, fresh and mad bling-bling style.”

    so hi tech CGI could definitely be schmick, as is this show’s overall sound quality (go Mike) and Jeffrey might be schmick on a good day.

  2. Hi guys, Thanks for including my voicemails!

    As for ‘schmick’ – I didn’t even realise it was Australian slang, it even kind of sounds Yiddish πŸ™‚

    According to the Urban Dictionary:

    1. schmick

    Descriptive word, usually depecting a person or thing. If referring to a person, theres Lots of confidence, and an aura of almost detachment. In general, Means very suave, very smooth, ultra-cool.

    “That guy over there is so schmick”
    “My car is totally schmick”

    So it’s a good thing πŸ™‚ I did mean that the CGI did look ultra slick, cool, very very good, beautiful eye candy πŸ™‚
    That’s what’s schmick about it.

  3. Looks like i’ll be avoiding the bab podcast for fear of spoliers for the next few months.

    For those of us who don’t fly torrent airways, TLT not due out in Australia on DVD until Jan 2008!

  4. Irwin, Molokov from AUS tells us that he ordered TLT from Amazon, and it arrived within three weeks. So, maybe there’s an option for you. πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, now the Babylon podcast is teaching me vocabulary too πŸ™‚

    “Hey the Babylon Podcast is really schmick!”
