Babylon Podcast #200: The Beefcake of Babylon 5

Welcome to Show #200!

Here it is a major milestone episode, and we were so excited to get to the daydreaming that I totally forgot what show number we were on.

Laura from the League of Non-Aligned Knitters and Sandy Bruckner from join Summer in chatting about the male eye candy (or lack thereof) on Babylon 5.

Tonight’s definitely Ladies’ Night, but we’re still not sure if Bret was more interested in exploring his boundaries, or learning some new things about what women really want from a man.

Girl Talk: Summer, Laura and Sandy go into deep detail about which men they’d go for and why, which features or traits attract our attentions and desires, and which ones turn us off fast.

And the discussion’s not limited to the human men… some of the aliens are given serious consideration, and Bret weighs in on a number of characters he could seriously consider entertaining.

And we just can’t stop thinking about the possibilities when you’ve got six.

Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is starting a push to get 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. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.

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 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.

  1. Loved the broadcast. It was almost as much fun listening as it was recording it. Thanks for inviting me.

  2. I’m blown away. All I can say is… May I have another, Mistress Summer?

  3. If there was any question that the Babylon Podcast contains educational material, this should settle the question one way or the other.

    Looking forward to listening to this episode. Downloading it to my mp3-player so I’ll have some entertainment on my next dig out on the Rim.

  5. And since I forgot to mention it in recording Show #201, I’ll mention this here:

    In the ESPN “30 for 30” film series, check out a film called “Silly Little Game”, about the history of Rotisserie Baseball and it’s evolution into Fantasy Sports in general.

    The one woman who was part of that very first group of fantasy team owners had criteria beyond the regular stats of the players when selecting her team. Her “secondary criteria” included the color of their eyes, and the quality of their rear ends.

    It’s a long held and unspoken female tradition, guys. Remember what Salt ‘n’ Pepa said, “Gotta thank your Mama for a butt like that!”

    We are almost always checking out your butts.
