Welcome to Show #228!
Tim and Bret mull over ways of keeping better tabs on their teenage kids than their own parents kept on them. It’s a losing proposition, but one you can’t refuse…
Deep Geeking: Tim, Summer and Bret chat about “Each Night I Dream of Home”, an episode that ties into the importance of Excalibur’s mission, and shows us just how complex the task of decoding the Drakh plague virus truly is.
Tim recalls how he originally disliked this episode, because of what he thought was the “stunt casting” of characters from the original series to hook old fans; and Summer disagrees that it was “stunt casting” solely to garner ratings for TNT.
Listener Emails: Nan thinks that Gary should have his own show, consisting solely of all of Gary’s voicemails to all of the shows he calls in to. There ya go, the Garypalooza Podcast!
But Bret is really feeling unloved. We might have to do something about that…
Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is expanding the documentation to be covered at Lurker’s Guide 2.0, the major change being converting the episode guide into a full Wiki with cross-referenced topics, tidbits and everything you’d want in a Wiki. She’s also still searching for pictures of rare 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.
