Welcome to Show #124!
Kosh. Rastaman. I got nothin’.
Feedbackapalooza Part Deux!! Chris Lester and C.A. Sizemore are still in on the Feedback Fun.
Colin doesn’t appreciate the tone of JMS’ announcement; Freehold South chimes in on the JMS announcement, and feels blindsided by it; Bethany from OK comments on “Into the Fire”, agreeing with Tim’s desire to see what was going on in the Alliance ships saving Sheridan and Delenn, and disagreeing with Summer calling the Vorlons/Shadows “whiny”.
Email from Jerry in Ashburn comments on alternatives to deeper explorations of the revelations from “Into the Fire”, and suggests that “Intersections in Real Time” could have been cut (we disagree!); Edmund weighs in on the JMS announcement, theorizing that JMS might be trying to flex his newly found status to see what he might be able to create; John in Birmingham agrees with Brad’s viewpoint on JMS’ announcement (a comment from PodCulture).
New question: Vipers vs Starfuries? What do you think? Summer thinks the Vipers might actually take out the Starfuries, and while Thunderbolts might fare a shade better, they’d still lose out.
Mike Smithwick responds with what he would have cut from B5, and what he would have added in; Ann in CA wonders if JMS’ announcement was more of an indication that he hasn’t had the chance to really focus on creating more B5 stories, be it lack of time or introduction of a block; an X-Files tangent leads to a comparison between Chris Carter’s long-term work versus JMS’ long-term work.
Jeffrey notes that we haven’t gotten Christopher Franke and Ed Wasser for us to talk to, and promises to do better; comments on inconsistencies “Into the Fire”; Andy comments on the “Into the Fire” discussion, and chimes in on what he thinks could have happened had Londo failed in his plan to kill Cartagia and destroy the Shadow ships on Centauri Prime; Valerie in MD disagrees with Tim’s opinion that “The Long Night” was a bad title… she also would love to listen to a Lensman podcast, and is waiting for our commentary on the Script Books (we’re working on that last one).

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.
