Welcome to Show #203!
Since the Draco Vista Studios are still undergoing moving and renovations, Summer’s recording this episode from her secret lair. Gary from Jacksonville also joins in the fun, starting off by recounting his currently unsuccessful search for his own copy of the book “Parliament of Dreams: Conferring on Babylon 5”.
Deep Geeking: Tim was inspired by our discussion on “River of Souls”, which leads to tonight’s topic. Tim, Summer and Gary discuss religion, faith and spirituality as portrayed in Babylon 5.
From the premise and purpose of the Soul Hunters, to the clashes between science and faith, to the waning old faiths contrasted with the rise of new ones, there are no simple answers, which is why we keep debating the questions.
Listener Feedback: Gary comments on Gary; Gary comments on Gary and Edmund; John in Atlanta has been a very good minion despite the fact that Summer frightened him, and John in Oregon submits a theory that the main reason why Lochley would be implicitly trusted by Sheridan by having them have been married was a story-telling gimmick to create a relationship “shortcut”
Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is starting a push to get Lurker’s Guide 2.0 completed and finished, including missing collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.
More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!
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.
