Welcome to Show #168!
There is no good way to celebrate Kosh Assassination Day, but perhaps we can ease the weight of that loss by coming up with appropriate lyrics for “The Day the Vorlon Died”… call those in, post them here in comments, let’s do the Vorlon proud!
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer discuss on “In the Kingdom of the Blind”, and Summer has a few nits to pick about some of the rash, early actions to force the Alliance member worlds to give telepaths a home of their own.
The argument can be made that Byron’s fatal misstep was the timing of his assault on the secrets of the ambassadors, but Summer thinks that for someone who preaches peace and pacifism, that’s just a poorly impulsive, irrational and childish first move. Tim thinks it highlights the true tragic nature of Byron’s character, which for him makes the character flaws more believable.
Feedback: Kurt pimps GoToMeeting for us; Kurt comments on the “The Day of the Dead”, and wonders if a Pak’ma’ra would have tried to eat their visitor from beyond the dead, and Tim thinks Kurt overthought the process… and would the Pak’ma’ra be the ultimate first line of defense against a zombie apocalypse?
E-Raven mentions starting to watch Babylon 5 at the tender age of 3 years old… and is still a fan now at the age of 12! What hooks a 3-year-old on the show?
Babylon Podcast Social Communities:
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.
