Welcome to Show #28!
Tim and Summer envy Jeffrey as he enjoys Dodger Dogs to kick off the show, and discuss how good food and an appreciation for baseball were integral parts of life on Babylon 5, discuss a little about the upcoming B5 movies that JMS is working on, and start an informal pool on which stories might be the first ones to be completed.
Tim and Summer’s episode discussion this week is about “Babylon Squared”.
In “Babylon Squared”, the return of the Babylon 4 station that mysteriously disappeared without a trace 4 years earlier creates more questions than it resolves, and in the process we begin to get a sense of the much larger picture surrounding the story arc so far.
And don’t forget that most important of philosophical posits: Fasten, then zip?
Listener Feedback: First, Jeffrey tells us about his memories of Tim Choate, the actor who portrayed Zathras so unforgettably. Next, Tim, Summer and Jeff address a few listener emails and comments: Tim reads an email from Jim with info on what happened to the first 3 stations; Scott submits links about Babylon 5 Cookbook recipes; and Mike comments on our opinions about the quality and content of “Voice in the Wilderness”.
For voicemails, Alexis in Florida wants to know more about royalties and if the B5 cast will get more money from the resurgence of the show in new outlets; Jarsto from the Netherlands corrects us on which wife the dancer was, comments on the use of the Great Machine throughout the rest of the series, and wants to know how we view Londo’s capacity for self-sacrifice.
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call, or email us and tell us what you think… and likely hear it played or read on the show. Please try to keep the voicemail comments as brief as possible.
