Welcome to Show #105!
Tim and Summer travel to the Vorlon Homeworld to record this week’s show! That’s right… there was no live feed last week because Jeffrey’s studio isn’t set up to feed out to the streaming servers… and the chat room was really antsy about missing their fix.
We’re going to have to try to fix that, aren’t we?
Deep Geeking: This week, Tim and Summer discuss “And the Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place”, and the intrigues undertaken by Londo regarding G’Kar and Lord Refa, a boost in morale from messages from the Resistance on Earth relayed by several visiting religious dignitaries, and Sheridan and Delenn discovered the method behind the madness that the Shadow attacks that have been plaguing the sector for the past few weeks.
Jeffrey adds some background on William Forward’s portrayal of Lord Refa, and the good-natured banter between Mel Winkler and Louis Turenne.
Luckily, there was no carrying on cranky this week!
Listener Feedback: Mitch O sent an email saying that Jerry Doyle made a unannounced appearance at Megacon in Orlando 2 weekends ago, and said that Michael O’Hare was gravely ill. Tim couldn’t find any supporting info online, but Jeff’s going to try to find out for sure.
Lowell wonders if B5 will show up on The WB’s new online web programming, but B5 was technically pre-WB Network, so it’s unlikely, but we’d love to be happily surprised!
Upcoming Interviews: Jeffrey proposes a new interview format: we tell you who’s coming up, and you send us questions to ask them! In two weeks, our guest will be co-producer George Johnsen! Send in your questions for George, and we’ll get them aired! Send in an email or voicemail with your questions for George!
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can 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.
Summer is still looking for one more of 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. We have a copy of the G’Kar one, now we’re holding out that someone out there has the Ivanova one!
