The Babylon Podcast, Season Six
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer delve into discussion on “Appearances and Other Deceits”, the final produced episode of Crusade.
Tim stumbled across the iFanboy website, and relays to us an article by Ron putting JMS at #10 on his list of “worst things in comics in 2010,” and explains where he feels the JMS shortcomings fell.
Maybe Tim should be upset about him also dropping the ball on the Lensman movie.
Tim and Summer enjoy a chat with renowned character actor Tucker Smallwood, who played Mr David Endawi in the S3 episode “Matters of Honor”, and Commodore Glen Van Ross in Space: Above and Beyond.
Tucker talks about war as used in science fiction and his being a fan of science fiction literature growing up, and how his experience as an infantry commander in Vietnam informed his work and contributions to Space: Above and Beyond. He also talks about studying acting after being severely wounded, about struggling with and working through PTSD years after the fact, and more.
Bret strongly recommends following @patriciatallman, merely for the hilarious entertainment value, Tim reads us a status update on various JMS writing projects.
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”, demonstrating amazing feats of recall, considering that Summer watched the wrong damned episode this week.
For those who hadn’t seen Jeffrey’s heartfelt remembrance of Jeff Conaway, here’s the full video. I don’t think there are many others who could have said it any better.
Jeffrey shares with us a message about what it meant to him to have had Jeff Conaway in his life for a time.
Listener Feedback: Strangely, Tim adored Neil Gaiman’s Doctor Who episode, “The Doctor’s Wife”… to be expected?
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer get Marjean’s thoughts on “Rules of the Game”, particularly the development of the relationship between Dr Chambers and Max Eilerson, discovering what and who Max cares about, and of course, Dr Chambers’ impeccable fashion sense and combat timing.
And yes, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Once her new project, Three Moon Rising, is ready, we’ll be talking with her again about it over at Slice of SciFi!
Tim, Summer and Bret chat with Peter David and Kathleen David, with Peter telling us about how he got into writing episodes for the show, how he needed to divert from “writing for Star Trek” in order to get the Babylon 5 feel correct in the episodes and the novels, finding character voices, and more.
Kathleen talks a little about logistics behind getting the Del Rey B5 novels published, from author selection to publishing schedule and more.
And there’s stuff people STILL can’t talk about, even after all this time.
