Welcome to Show #61!
There’s a box of Babylon 5 novels sitting here, books that were rescued from unknown fates at used bookstores in his area by Brad from PodCulture. What are your thoughts on having a section where folks can find B5 novels for those who are looking for them?
Tim Callender, Summer and Tim Adamec chat about their thoughts on the upcoming “Lost Tales”, because we don’t have any official new news to talk about. More polygons!
Deep Geeking: Tim C. and Summer talk about the entertaining and revealing episode “There All The Honor Lies”, wherein Sheridan is lured into being suspected of murdering a Minbari, and many secrets and half-truths are shaken out during the course of investigating what happened.
We get a glimpse of the divide between the Minbari, in terms of Delenn’s change and their opinion of Sheridan now running the station, a taste of the complications of merchandising and how that impacts diplomatic relations, and a deeper look into the relationship between Londo and Vir.
Idealistcally, the truth will out, despite the many nuances surrounding Minbari honor and holding to the truth of things. And remember, there is always beauty in the dark.
“There All The Honor Lies” is available for download from iTunes.
Listener Feedback: Bill in Chicago on outtakes; Bill again, with appreciation for the podcast and a Kosh joke; Kosh likes Spam? Edmund in Greenville muses the possibilities; Super Scotty on Zima; Tim reads an email from Pavel on the Top 5 and Bottom 5 episodes of the series, and that leads into an argument about why “Day of the Dead” should not be classified amongst the worst of the series.
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.
Shameless related begging: Summer’s working to convince any publisher to do an essay collection on Babylon 5. If you’d be interested in buying one if they did do a B5 collection, let Summer know, here in comments.
