Welcome to Show #226!
Tim and Summer fret over how late we are in getting our Season 6 open done, and we really do hope that Gary’s on the case, and we actually get Bret to sing for us!
Deep Geeking: Tim, Summer and Bret chat about “Visitors from Down the Street”, an episode filled with snark and more than wink and nod towards The X-Files.
Time has changed Tim’s perception of this episode, and now Bret wishes he’d done his homework and watched it!
And where do captains of deep space exploration vessels get their supply of Hawaiian shirts? Inquiring minds want to know…
Feedback: Tim dives into the emails a bit: Natalie wants to know more about Minbari headbones, and whether they are groomed or hereditary; Edmund wants to know if we’re definitely planning on bringing Peter David onto the podcast to discuss his story contributions to the B5/Crusade universe (which leads to a discussion about how cool and how difficult it’d be to get Daniel Dae Kim on for a Crusade chat)
Muse on this: is the Ulkesh costume more reminiscent of a whiskey decanter or a Pez dispenser? Discuss.
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.
