Welcome to Show #94!
Tim, Summer and Jeffrey ring in the first Babylon Podcast of 2008 with puns. And some New Year’s resolutions broken mere seconds after they’re made. But we’re playing on the new mixer, so it’s all good.
And many props to Brad from PodCulture for editing together the Holiday Specials.
Voicemail: We’re playing catch-up for the voicemails from the end of 2007; Andrew sent in the audio for a Season 1 blooper favorite of Summer’s; Kurt in St George noticed that Delenn didn’t reveal a secret to us in “Ceremonies of Light and Dark”, and surmises that she may have confided this secret to Lennier… both Summer and Tim disagree with this theory and list the reasons why; Keyboard: Purple, Mouse: Green… geek jokes ensue; Gary enjoyed seeing that Peter Woodward had a role in “National Treasure 2” and wishes that there could have been a Crusade movie; Peter Woodward’s movie “Closing the Ring” has opened in the UK, directed by Richard Attenborough; a suggestion about what to do with those proof of purchase tags in DVDs; a comment about Buzz Aldrin’s comments for Jeffrey, and a vote against a Vorlon blog?
In the email feedback, Tim reads messages from Kate from Chicagoland, who wants to hear us chat with Kim Strauss about being “the alien of the week”; Mike S wonders if JMS may have intentionally picked a list of SF conventions to break during the evolution of the show; and Andrew laments how a Star Trek podcast made CNN, while a Babylon 5 podcast doesn’t… and would love to hear from Claudia again. The chat room, on the other hand, would love it if Keegan MacIntosh dropped in again.
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 wants 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.
Yes, we really are still working out logistics on the Jerseys. We’ll keep you posted on when you can place your pre-order!
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.
The B5 library collection grows… if you are interested in buying/trading the books currently in the B5 library, leave us a comment!

Babylon 5 Information Gathering: If you know of a dead or abandoned B5 related website that may be in need of a new home, let Summer know! Maybe we can mirror it here or house it on a sister site.
