Babylon Podcast #231: Patterns of the Soul (Crusade)

Welcome to Show #231!

Bret is AWOL, so Tim and Summer soldier on. Gary wonders if Shadows were involved in the ending of Bruce Boxleitner’s and Melissa Gilbert’s marriage, and the Shadow puns devolve…

Tim throws it out there that he’d most want to talk with David Allen Brooks, based on his performance and portrayal of Max Eilerson.

Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer discuss “Patterns of the Soul”, an episode that gives us our first glimpse of conspiracies and ulterior motives that may be exploiting opportunities brought about after the introduction of the plague to the human population.

They discuss what types of patterns the episode title might refer to, and how the various secrets being guarded by each party involved in this encounter are related, in how they color everyone’s actions.

Listener Emails: Julian laments catching up on the shows so quickly, and wonders if perhaps there were 3 different triluminaries, each one with a different function; Joe C gives us his Top 5 episodes; Todd in NC informs us of Walter Koenig’s cool statues that he displayed for William Shatner on the March 14th episode of “Raw Nerve”… we need to find a clip of that segment.

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 also 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!

    “Tim throws it out there that he’d most want to talk with David Allen Brooks, based on his performance and portrayal of Max Eilerson.” I wonder if Tim will soon get his wish.

  2. Voice mail left for my pick and response to Z’ha’Dum being on the list.

  3. Adam of Bureau 13 says

    Finally going to catch up after 2 months. I am listening to the last feedbackapalooza right now. Sent in a lot of comments over the past month or so, haven’t heard any of them yet. Not upset about it or anything, I like the Podcast either way.

  4. Summer, re: Cobra, you don’t have to watch the movie. A masochistic* British guy did it for you. 😉

    Masochistic for making himself sit through the entire movie to review it I mean, not, the other way.
