Babylon Podcast #100: War Without End (Season 3)

Welcome to Show #100!

Jeff wishes everyone a Happy Vorlontine’s Day, and Tim, Summer and Jeffrey take a moment to recognize a podcast milestone… okay, moment over. Let’s get to the geeking!

Deep Geeking: We have a Deep Geeking treat for you… a guest geeker!

Mike McCafferty

Mike McCafferty, actor and geek, joins us to share his long pent-up Babylon 5 theories. He believes that “War Without End” is the Grand Retcon of the series, and we all discuss a lot of points from casting to plot adjustments and future Retcon necessities in the series.

We argue about time travel and the story changes necessitated by Sheridan replacing Sinclair, the differences in the time compression between “Babylon Squared” and “War Without End”, and so many more nitpicks, that most B5 geeks should be quite satisfied.

Visit Mike’s website and say hello. And we’ll let you know when the Invisible Man DVD hits the shelves!

If you go to Starship Sofa, check out the episode containing “Going Through Changes” by Pat Murphy. Summer read the story, and people have been enjoying the reading.

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 one more of 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. We have a copy of the G’Kar one, now we’re holding out that someone out there has the Ivanova one!

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

  3. Wow. I just love how you guys kinda skipped over the episode re-cap and went straight into the discussion. I’m e-mailing this one to my Mom, she’ll get a huge kick out of it.

  4. Hi Babylonpodcasters!
    Congratulations to 100 episodes. I haven’t listened to the latest show but I’m sure it’ll be aweome just like the 99 before.

  5. Congrats on 100!

    I’ve always felt that JMS had the command change from Sinclair to Sheridan in mind since the beginning. In fact, he says so in the opening monologue of The Gathering!
