Feedbackapalooza: Voicemail highlights this episode: Arkle theorizes on the real reason for some of the fans’ deep dislike of Byron; the three unproduced Crusade scripts are summarized in the Crusade supplement of the Babylon 5 Role Playing Game book… who knew?
Hated Bunny wants to know if the “original trilogy” of novels will be amongst the books we’ll be covering when we start discussing the B5 novels… since those aren’t canon and are most likely the unauthorized books published by Mongoose, it’s doubtful and highly unlikely, since we thought that none of those were ever published; Gary relates to us a reason why 7-years-old may be too young to being indoctrination into Babylon 5; Cathy from the League of Non-Aligned Knitters lets us know that her daughter began watching B5 at 10-years-old, and has watched most of the episodes 5-6-7 times each, and is impressed by her daughter’s geek prowess;
Neil listened to the JMS interview again and notes that the quality of the CGI for when it was done was tops for when it was done, and Summer wonders if the cases for the newly released “repackaged” DVD sets are the same or if they’re redesigned;
In responding to more emails about “Day of the Dead”, the banter devolves into thumb wrestling battles and Rock-Em Sock-Em Robots challenges.
