Welcome to Show #172!
Tim, Summer and Jeffrey discuss a prop that a fan found on a website, being proclaimed as something “for a small actor’s head”. Jeffrey surmises that since the prop is listed as being foam, he believes that it might have been a cast or mold, rather than the actual head, since all of the real Vorlon heads were fiberglass.
Next, there’s a little discussion about a comment found on the io9 article on inexpensive aliens that still hold up after the years… to Jeffrey’s knowledge, there was not any Vorlon puppet, and he himself was most definitely not attacked by the production crew with hammers.
Interview: Gary Hasson of Lightspeed Fine Art joins us to chat about how his involvement with scifi television and Babylon 5. He’s done art for Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Xena, Hercules, Farscape, BSG, and many more as well.
Gary also tells us about his recent trip to Dragon*Con, and catching up with the B5 cast members, the various portraits, and much more.
Feedback: With this week’s voicemails, we entertain more observations and creative visualizations on alternative “Day of the Dead” scenarios, including better uses of Morden, commentary on Penn & Teller’s performance and impact, and more! Can you imagine Marcus as a piece of wall art in Medlab, encased in carbonite and preserved in stasis until such time medical science can heal him?

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.
