Babylon Podcast #211: A Call to Arms (Movie)

Welcome to Show #211!

Tim and Summer gush a little bit over what they’ve read so far of “Crusade: What the Hell Happened? Volume 1”. As a huge fan of Crusade and everything it might have been, I foresee a lot of long nights staying up late reading…

Discussion: Tim and Summer delve into “A Call to Arms”, and amongst other things, talk about how the movie functions as a standalone movie rather than direct pilot for the new series, argue back and forth about some of the character development and interactions, speculate broadly on newly interpreted happenings and how they might have influenced things during later Crusade episodes that we never got, and much more.

Yeah, Summer’s still starry-eyed when it comes to Crusade related things.

Speaking of Crusade, we’re taking feedback on whether or not to discuss the show in TNT broadcast order, or in the JMS preferred story order. There’ll be a poll up later in the week…

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!

    This little b****r will neither download nor play directly from the site. The horror, the horror!

  2. Regarding the comment about dust was just a McGuffin, I would like to point out that the title of a Season 3 episode was “Dust to Dust.” I, too, felt that this line of story was abandoned. It was important enough for JMS to put it into a title and make it a pun, as well. JMS takes his punning seriously. (And, yes, not everything in a title was important.)

    Regarding the Drazi “pouch,” does anyone see a pun there? The Drake/Drakh got a groan!
