Welcome to Show #257!
It’s been way too quiet on the Babylon 5 front AND the Crusasde Script Books front. What’s going on?
Feedbackapalooza: Arkle confirms that there is a Jeremiah Season 2 DVD out there, but it’s an Amazon on-demand special order; Rapid Eye puts forth his theory why there aren’t any pictures of Summer on the website; Gary calls shenanigans on the Thieves Guild having the firepower to take out a White Star; Neil from Bowie calls in about enjoying reading the B5 short stories and comics;
Neil sends props out to “Sympathy for Mr. Morden” (by Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff), and wants to know if that artist has any more Babylon 5 related material; Neil talks about his time playing the B5 CCG; Gary asks our opinion on JMS’ touting the sales of the comics titles when he was writing for them; Gary doesn’t think it’s possible to come up with an effective “short list” for the series without shortchanging the overall story; Gary talks about recent Mars probe developments and discoveries, which leads Tim down a tangent trail about sending probes out into space rather than sending manned flights anymore;
Neil also enjoyed “He’s a Vorlon”… and yes, Neil, we do need more B5 parody songs!
Also, folks preparing to review and discuss the comics and novels with us (or for us), get ready… your turn will be coming up soon!

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.
