Welcome to Show #254!
Tim relates some Watchmen prequel rumors, and Summer starts spreading the news about the original Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future series finally coming out on DVD.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer discuss the unproduced Crusade script for “Tried and True”, which can be found in the “Crusade: Other Voices, Vol 2” scriptbook.
This would have been a remarkable Dureena performance, and comparisons can be drawn between this draft and what we saw in Season 4’s “Intersections in Real Time”, especially given the “one room play” stage-like setting in both stories.
Also, folks preparing to review and discuss the comics and novels with us (or for us), get ready… your turn will be coming up soon!
Discussion: Tim and Summer relate some geeky anecdotes, even further cementing the high scores on their geek cards.
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!
Babylon Podcast Social Communities:
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.
