Welcome to Show #84!
B5 Audio Drama: The Three-Edged Sword Episode 14: “Small Problems” (TS: 1:25-9:50) What you’re hearing here on The Babylon Podcast is just a small part of the story… the full audio drama can be heard at Voices of Babylon, so what are you waiting for? Go over and check them out!
Yes, finally, it’s here! The long-awaited Deep Geeking ™ for “Over There”, the second episode in Volume 1 of “Babylon 5: The Lost Tales”.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer commence the geeking for the second Lost Tales episode, “Over There”, chronologically picking up right after the Keegan MacIntosh interview.
We talk about how smoothly Bruce has slipped back into the character of Sheridan, with a little more age and a lot more leadership experience added to season. This story truly showcases some of the best elements that die-hard Babylon 5 fans truly love.
We also talk about Sheridan’s diatribe about being pulled again into the forefront of seeing a horrible future that needs to be countered before it’s too late, and the implications that Technomages and others who keep turning to Sheridan out of a belief that he can change the course of destiny, and make large sections of the universe bend to his will. Talk also ventures from city skyline landmarks of today lasting long into the future, where Vorlon technology may have been scooped up to be analyzed and adapted by humans, and more.
Discussion ranges around Sheridan being faced with the conundrum of meeting a jaded innocent, knowing that he might be destined to devastate Earth, and the reality of seeing and talking to a young man who hasn’t done anything yet save being born into a poisonous royal court and growing up with the fallout of what his own father almost did to the planet.
What to do? What manipulations and machinations truly lie deep in the heart of a Technomage? We may never know.
Babylon 5 Information Gathering: Can we and should we mount a Babylon 5 propaganda campaign, in order to get sales of The Lost Tales to the point where Warner really really wants to greelight more volumes of TLT? Let us know…
Summer still needs to find the long versions of the B5 promos that ran on TNT prior to Season 5, the ones narrated by Keith David… anyone have any old VHS copies of S5 they taped from TNT? Specifically, the :30 spots, one featuring Ivanova and the other G’Kar… they were part of the series of ads TNT ran promoting the addition of B5 to their lineup.
