Welcome to Show #199!
Just about everyone was missing in action this episode, so it’s lucky that we had Edmund from Greenville and Gary from Jacksonville to fill in, and yes, we are risking damage to the time-space continuum by having Gary both answer his own voicemails and call in a voicemail in response to his response to his own voicemail.
The fabric of our universe may never be the same.
And don’t miss next week’s special “Men of Babylon 5” episode!
Listener Feedback: Summer, Edmund and Gary tackle the bulk of the remaining messages in the voicemail queue, and the fabric of our universe shudders.
Gary wonders if there might have been an IPX spinoff series based on how much “Thirdspace” focused on the IPX side of the story; Roger weighs in on “A Call to Arms” being a back-door pilot and wonders if “Legend of the Rangers” falls into that same category; Roger chastises Summer for saying that “All Along the Watchtower” was Hendrix’ rather than Dylan’s creation; Gary posits that Lyta had subsconscious knowledge of the machine that might have helped make sense of why she sent all the maintbots careening into it; Mike in Detroit comments on the “Day of the Dead” Smackdown and why Lennier/Morden was a good matchup;
Neil from Bowie talks about how JMS kept his “Sleeping in Light” cameo under wraps; Arkle wants to know if there have been any FarPoint Media shows that have never fallen into the Gilligan’s Island trap; Will in Miami implores us to keep the podcast alive long after we’ve run out of B5 episodes to talk about; Gary weighs in on the deus ex machina plotonium effect of the Thirdspace device.
Summer also asks for help in getting Lurker’s Guide 2.0 completed and finished, including missing collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade.
More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!
Babylon Podcast Social Communities:
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.
