Welcome to Show #62!
Tim and Jeffrey are joined by Jarsto this week. That’s right… Jarsto has muscled his way onto the main show. Actually, he’s graciously accepted our offer to fill in for a very ill Summer, and having his B5 knowledge and insight available live on-the-fly is a wonderful treat.
This is what happens when Summer isn’t around, and the boys begin to play. Play with what, you really don’t want to know.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Jarsto talk about the entertaining and revealing episode “And Now For A Word”, where an ISN news crew is sent to the station to do a routine “36 Hours” report, and end up being caught in the crossfire as Babylon 5 gets caught in the middle of the shooting war between the Narn and the Centauri.
Interpreting the differences in how the characters act under pressure with cameras around than in the situations we’ve seen them in previously can be an interesting contrast.
“And Now For A Word” is available for download from iTunes.
Listener Feedback: Jarsto responds to… his own voicemail… weird; Edmund comments on the Jeanne Cavelos chat, an interview that hasn’t officially aired yet, and muses on Harlan Ellison and Neil Gaiman playing in JMS’ universe.
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.
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?
