Welcome to Show #244!
Walter Koenig at last has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! It’s about damned time.
Deep Geeking: Tim, Bret and Summer discuss “War Zone”, with Summer and Bret demonstrating amazing feats of recall, considering that they watched the wrong damned episode in preparation for this week’s discussion.
We talk about how the revised viewing order affects not only the timing of this episode, but also succeeded in confusing your hosts. How does an origin story work for an audience when they’re watching it 10 weeks into the story?
Tim has problems with long range video conversations not ending with the courtesy of a goodbye or farewell. I really don’t get why it’s such a big deal for him… what do you think?
Listener Feedback: Nan weighs in on the power of forgiveness and whether a stranger can help someone down that path; Gail is powering through the old podcast episodes to catch up, but wants to know if we ever talked about the old Green Room fan forums; Jim adds his observations on the potential for a Babylon 5 reboot, believing that the Star Wars prequels serve as an example as to why said reboot might be a bad idea for us. Star Wars tangent warning!
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.
