Welcome to Show #189!
At long last, Jeffrey has found his snow. And we’re working on having a field reporter out at the next shuttle launch!!
Voicemails: Rod in Nashville thinks we missed out on the full drama content of “Wheel of Fire”; Father B comments on Londo’s sacrifice in “Fall of Centauri Prime” matching up with Lady Morella’s prophecies; Edmund disagrees with Londo’s acceptance of his fate with the Drakh as part of being slave to his visions; Gary posits that he can come up a never-ending stream of voicemails for us to talk about, even if we run out of B5 material to cover; Arkle says the Sheridan surprise in “Wheel of Fire” was spoiled by the episodic trailer; Colin compares Elric’s prediction for Londo with the sky-holoprojection of Londo’s coronoation speech;
Gary wonders what about having been influenced by Vorlons makes Sheridan immune to Lyta’s attempts at mind control; Rod in Nashville says the plot flow issues from “Movements of Fire and Shadow” stem from it really needing to be “Fall”, part 1; Rod has a theory about how far and wide the Drakh had planted bombs all around Centauri Prime; Gary muses on how different the Garibaldi intervention might have been if he’d been confronted by Ivanova rather than Lochley; Rod wonders about our fascination with the Drakh keeper removal scene, and doesn’t think the sound was authentically “squishy” enough;
Gary draws a comparison between G’Kar’s rejection of the offer of leadership, and Londo’s resigned acceptance of leadership; Father B weighs in on the issue of alcoholism; Edmund adds his thoughts on the Lyta rummaging around in Garibaldi’s dreams; wonders where the name “Ulkesh” came from for the replacement Vorlon; Gary is bored enough to wonder why the podcast album art depicts Tim as a Centauri and Summer as wearing the Army of Light; Colin asks for some clarification on the original story timeline based on our comments about the way “Fall” felt like an ending; Edmund shows his appreciation for the holiday specials; Father B thinks that Tim might have deeper issues with “Day of the Dead” and other leaps of spiritual faith depicted in B5 than he’s letting on
Babylon 5 Information Gathering: If you know of a dead or abandoned B5 related website that may be in need of a new home, let Summer know! Maybe we can mirror it here or house it on a sister site.
