Welcome to Show #130!
Jeffrey’s sick, Summer’s remote, and Tim’s on the landline from hell. Mike couldn’t even stay in the room, and Brad gritted his teeth the entire editing time.
Deep Geeking: This week, Tim and Summer chat about “Conflicts of Interest”. Tim points out how much more CGI was in this episode than usual, and appreciates how the heightened tensions were played out between characters.
We discuss how much of Garibaldi’s alienation of his friends is likely the result of the programming “enhancing” some of his natural tendencies, and of the machinations that both Sheridan and Delenn must start putting in motion to save their resepective homeworlds.
Discussion: Jeffrey hacks up a lung. We have a response on the choices for who’d throw Sheridan his bachelor party. Not only do we want to know what a Vorlon does to throw a party, we discuss the possible ramifications of having space-faring races getting dead drunk and playing with the various buttons on spaceships. Starstuff writes in that the Babylon Podcast has been her ray of sunshine all year, and shares her appreciation.
Yes, we can make people laugh, both intentionally and by accident, so tell us your tales of when our plucky little show made you laugh, or shared new knowledge with you.
And X-Wings would lose to both Starfuries and Vipers.
