Welcome to Show #223!
Tim and Summer continue to lament not only the lack of fresh B5 related content, but the dearth of the hope of any potential new B5 content.
The stages of scifi television grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Podcasting, Acceptance.
If you are a die-hard B5 fan, and for some reasons you haven’t purchased any previous B5 Script Books, get your hands on “Artifacts from Beyond the Rim”. It will be available from B5 Books until January 20, 2011
Deep Geeking: In this episode, Tim and Summer discuss “The Long Road”, the games technomages play, whether or not dragons should still invoke a primal fear in space-faring races, and more.
Tim has a different appreciation for this episode when watched in the current order, and Summer likes how much better some of the character relationships have developed in this current viewing order.
Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is expanding the documentation to be covered at Lurker’s Guide 2.0, the major change being converting the episode guide into a full Wiki with cross-referenced topics, tidbits and everything you’d want in a Wiki. She’s still searching for pictures of rare 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.
