Welcome to Show #262!
There’s nothing quite like playing Devil’s Advocate in a Babylon 5 argument you’re having with yourself.
Feedbackapalooza: The Feedbacking continues, as we hack our way through the backlog, clearing the way for future voicemails to come in about the comics, novels, and collectibles.
Joe C’s continues to make his points on what might have happened in Crusade Season 2, surrounding the cure for the plague, and possibly integrating more original B5 characters into the story; Andrew from Tucson tells about finding B5 action figures at used bookstores in Phoenix; Gary reminds us all that the Chronologies book will be going “out of production” on February 29th, but a brand new series will be starting up on March 14th (See B5 Books for details on “Echoes”);
Neil comments on “The End of the Line” and how good he thinks it would have been if we’d seen it on screen; Neil throws out a suggestion for covering the non-trilogy novels; Neil wants to know how many B5 trading cards Summer had signed by B5 actors; Edmund weighs in on “The Lost Tales” revisited, and expresses his displeasure at not getting one final shot of Sheridan walking into the Zocalo, if this is the end of any B5 video we will ever get; Edmund wonders if there might not have been some other trap doors in the story abou Prince Vintari’s life on Minbar.
The time is here! Next up, we’re jumping into talking about the comics, followed by the novels. Do your homework, take notes, and if you’re joining us for the discussions, read up and get ready for us to call you!
Submitting your own Feedback: If you have any suggestions or comments, please let us know! Call, or just email us a comment you’ve recorded yourself!
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.
