Welcome to Show #129!
Jeffrey is under the weather this week, so Brad Bowyer of PodCulture joins us for his birthday!
Tim relays some brief JMS and B5 related tidbits that filtered in this week: JMS confirms that the Jeremiah finale “Interregnum” was meant to be a finale for him (and where is Jeremiah Season 2 on DVD, anyway?); “World War Z” has been picked up by Brad Pitt’s production company (script written by JMS… I wanna read a copy too!); JMS explained more about the “no more Lost Tales” statement (standalones are harder to budget than series); and Tim is disappointed by no new Lensman news yet.
Deep Geeking: Tim, Summer and Brad chat about “Lines of Communication”. The funny thing is, Tim has no recollection of seeing this episode ever before. There must be a rogue PsiCop around doing mind wipes, because it’s very very hard to forget the dancing Drakh scene.
We discuss the influence the bombardment of anti-B5 propaganda on Sheridan’s state of mind, the repurposing of the War Room, and the urgent need of Delenn’s intercession on Minbari affairs, which have deteriorated since her dissolution of the Grey Council, and the connections Frankling and Marcus are making on Mars.
Truly, Summer can empathize with the crew’s seemingly perpetual lack of sleep.
Discussion: Summer promotes the newly available “Chronologies of Babylon 5” (available now from Babylon 5 Scripts); James in Dallas sent in an email in just to double-check Mike’s jello-wrestling preferences; Arkle really wanted to submit a question to JMS about “A Call To Arms” because he didn’t like the music… both Summer and Tim liked the music that Evan Chen composed for that movie and for Crusade, so we aren’t sure what specifically Arkle didn’t like.

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.
