Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer geek on “Grey 17 is Missing”, and the consensus is that half the episode is amazing, in terms of story, future implications, and charged emotional situations, and the other half is… well, I think even after 10 years we’re still trying to figure that out.
The Babylon Podcast, Season Three
Deep Geeking: Edmund joins Tim and Summer for episode geeking this week, covering “Walkabout”, a bridge episode that packs a lot of punch in some areas and that seems to fall off pace in others (in Summer’s opinion, anyway).
We see Dr Franklin, hanging around in Down-Below, searching for something, but not quite sure yet. What he finds for a time could be a reflection of his own situation, or something else entirely.
Interview: John Warner, Best Boy and Key Grip on Babylon 5, joins us to talk about his time on set, and making sure everyone’s lit correctly and all the cameras move where they need to, and manipulation of the sets.
So head on down to your nearest production, and if it’s safe to get into the studio, go hug a key grip for all that they do.

Deep Geeking: We have a Deep Geeking treat for you… a guest geeker!
Mike McCafferty, actor and geek, joins us to share his long pent-up Babylon 5 theories. He believes that “War Without End” is the Grand Retcon of the series, and we all discuss a lot of points from casting to plot adjustments and future Retcon necessities in the series.
Deep Geeking: This week, the geeking goes for “Interludes and Examinations”, and Jeffrey sticks around to give us some behind the scenes info on The Day the Vorlon Died.
Oh, and remember when Jeffrey said he was ill the day they filmed the smackdown in the hall with Bruce Boxleitner? He found the pictures!
Deep Geeking: This week, we talk about “Ship of Tears”, an episode with a tour de force performance by Walter Koenig. We get to see Bester as his usual menacing self, and we’re surprised with a suprisingly human and vulnerable aspect to the character we’d come to despise.
Alliances are shaken and shifted. Lines are being more clearly drawn in the upcoming battle between the forces of Order and Chaos.
