Welcome to Show #131!
Jeffrey’s back in fine form, but still recovering nicely from the Vorlon Virus. Tim reads a message from JMS about progress on the Lensman project, and Summer still wants more news about World War Z.
Feedbackapalooza: Or would this week better be called Garypalooza? Either way, the Vorlon is easily amused when listening to phone spam with audio effects applied to the clip.

Much can be said about season 5 and its quality, but what saves it, as I see it, is the fact that we get to see what happens after the war is won. After the point were most shows end.
Its easy to be heroic and make grand gestures in an epiq conflict like the Shadow war or “the fight to bring democracy back to Earth”. But it is after the war we get the long twilight peace, the dirty clean ups and have to face the concecvences of the decicions as well as to live in a world that just got stripped of its black/white blanket.
And that is what JMS manages to do in season 5.
Presenting us with a world that is perhaps a bit to close to home today then when it originaly aired.

Thanks for reading my e-mail on this feedbackapalooza. I really enjoyed the chat on music in sci-fi shows. Btw. it’s Chris as in Christopher, Mike, because you seem to have mistaken me for a female 🙂
On the topic of sci-fi TV and music, I really like the music Wendy & Lisa do for Heroes.
I hope everyone enjoyed my Garypalooza show. 😉
Did people actually like it, or should I really tone down the volume of vm I send?
