Welcome to Show #40!
Interview: Claudia Christian (“Commander Susan Ivanova”)
Warning: Harsh Language contained in this episode
Claudia Christian is only in the US for a short time, and we are giddy that she joins us for a time!
She talks to us about her fond memories of the show, of the mutual on-set fondling, of working with Bill Mumy for various music projects, and much more. “Geometry of Shadows” is still her favorite episode, and she talks about how her appreciation for the show now is so much deeper now that she’s had the time to sit and watch the series.
Yes, she’s lived in the UK so long she’s picked up a British accent. It’s cool, huh? So go help promote the trailer for her new project, STARHYKE.
Listener Feedback: Jarsto’s voicemail comments on distinguishing between good guy and bad guy signoffs; Dan from Honolulu comments on the talents we’ve lost from the series; Trampas from The Signal on the positive addition of Bruce Boxleitner, and the comparisons between B5 and Firefly.
Tim reads an email from Steve in Singapore about impersonating the Vorlon god Boojee; and one from Matt in Michigan on possibilities for “The Lost Tales”… and yes, I know we got the ep wrong… it’s “Legacies”, not “Quality of Mercy”.
Shameless plug: Summer contributed an essay to the essay collection, So Say We All: An Unauthorized Collection of Thoughts and Opinions on Battlestar Galactica, now available at your local bookstore and at Amazon.com.
She’s also really hoping to convince the publisher to eventually do a collection on Babylon 5. If you’d be interested in buying one if they did do a B5 collection, let Summer know.
We are still considering doing a separate B5 Fan Tales segment in the future, so send us those favorite anecdotes of yours.
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us, 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.
