Babylon Podcast #107: Shadow Dancing (Season 3)

Welcome to Show #107!

It’s baseball season again, and Jeffrey has already started in on the Dodgers geeking. The conversation really does take a science fiction turn… B5 loves baseball, and Star Trek does not. What’s up with that?

Deep Geeking: “Z minus 7 Days”. After the silliness dies down, Tim and Summer discuss “Shadow Dancing”, the episode that culminates in Sheridan’s and Delenn’s goal to get all of the League Worlds to work together in mutual self-defense against the Shadows. The B-story deals with Franklin dealing with the consequences of his actions and his choices, by literally talking things over with himself. And Jeffrey adds his own perceptions on why the cast (and crew?) were starting to look shaggy and scruffy towards the end of Season 3.

Feedback: Tim reads a comment from Katie on the website, wondering where Jeffrey’s pants got to in the picture on the website. Jeffrey reveals that budget concerns led to people not getting hair cuts, and needing to share the pants allotment. Is that TMI, or what?

Jeffrey also regales us with an anecdote about a guessing game involving Polaroids and boobs. Michael is really trying to insert boobs into every FarPoint Media show… and Summer really doesn’t know if she can make it stop!

Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us at 206-338-2259, 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.

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!

    NASA TV. I don’t know if you guys have seen this or not, but if you have google desktop you can add a gadget of NASA TV so you can always have it on your computer on the side. I have my photos cycling through on the side with a daily quote from Einstein, the local weather, NASA TV, and the top news headlines.
