Welcome to Show #19!
Interview: David J. Eagle (Director)
Tim, Summer and Jeffrey chat with David J. Eagle, director of 13 episodes from Seasons 2-5, including the Hugo Award winning “Severed Dreams”.
David talks about how he came to Babylon 5, the tendency of his episodes to be the high-impact ones, the joy of getting a complete script to work with from JMS weeks before shooting started, a little bit about his friendship with Isaac Asimov, and touches on some of his current projects.
Next, Tim and Summer discuss “Survivors”, one of the first set-up episodes that has major repercussions throughout the rest of the series. We have varying opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of the episode.
Listener Feedback: Tim, Summer and Jeffrey dive into emails from Brian asking whether B5 will show up on TV again; Michael corrects himself on talking about longer “trailers” instead of the “gag reels”; Jason Rennie of The SciPhi Show on alternate audio tracks in files available for download; and David comments on the realism of the Ranger’s pike.
