Discussion: Oh, the humanity! Even with Warner Bros being inconsistent with licensing terms, pulling licenses before items were completed or in some cases, had even gotten off the drawing boards, there’s still a LOT of stuff out there for a dedicated Babylon 5 fan to search for and immerse themselves in.
The new theme music for Season 7 makes it’s official debut, and it’s a snippet of the theme created by Stewart Copeland for the original version of “The Gathering” that aired in 1993.
Feedback: Tim, Summer and Jeremy respond to the backlog of voicemails that have come in over the past month or two, and as happens quite often, tangents rule.
Lots and lots of feedback, speculation, and general random geeking… enjoy!
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!
A few weeks back on Twitter via @babylonpodcast, Summer expressed her disappointment at finding dead space where the b5crusade.com website used to be. This happened after 2am, and she happened to notice a tweet from Bear McCreary from earlier that evening expressing his excitement about his Human Target compositions… which led Summer to wonder aloud how cool it could be to have Bear score whatever new B5 project Warner Bros has been having secret talks with JMS about. Ah, to dream a little dream…
Voicemails, plus emails.
With conjecture and tangents.
More Lazy Show Notes.
Deep Geeking: Tim, Summer, Bret, Jeffrey, and Chuck discuss “In the Beginning”, the first of the Babylon 5 TV movies, and how it functions as a vehicle to introduce the series to a brand new audience coming in via TNT, and to the existing fans who may not have been able to see all of the previous four seasons due to inconsistencies in syndicated broadcast times.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer discuss “Movements of Fire and Shadow”.
Tim believes the episode doesn’t quite pull together in as good a cohesive satisfying whole as it could have been, saving graces of the ability of various bipedal races to fart on command notwithstanding.
Who knew there was a Ducktona 500 and a Kenducky Derby?
Feedbackapalooza: Tim and Summer try to burn through the buildup of voicemails, and we haven’t even gotten to the ones commenting on the JMS interview yet.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer talk about “Racing Mars”, delving into the abundant humor playing around the relationship between Franklin and Marcus and their cover story for going to Mars, in Ivanova relieving Sheridan of duty and in trying to make deals with smugglers in the hopes of opening up new supply lines for the station.
