Seriously, who doesn’t like seeing chicks kicking butt?
The Babylon Podcast, Season Six
Summer and Gary chat with Carrie Dobro (Dureena Nafeel)!
Carrie talks about how much fun she’d had on the show, the challenges of her costume and her contact lenses, about the possible character development paths that Dureena might have gone on with both Galen and Gideon, and much much more.
We get a minor “Thor” report from Bret, who totally forgot to keep an eye out for the JMS cameo, but he liked the movie.
Then came the flood of voicemail…
Tim, Summer and Bret discuss “Ruling From the Tomb”, written by Peter David.
Tim has questions about the execution of this episode’s premise. While he’s good with the cropping up of doomsday cults, the abundance of coincidental meetings and convergent threads doesn’t sit well with him.
There are pieces of this episode that were changed or removed between earlier drafts and the final shooting, and details about those are in Crusade: Other Voices, Vol 2, and we can’t wait for Peter David to join us to talk about them.
Feedbackapalooza: Telepath smackdown? Either way, this episode seems to be chock full of questions from Adam from start to finish.
Tim and Summer chat with Marjean Holden, our honorary co-host for this episode!
Marjean talks about her ventures into writing for television and film, her love of the science fiction genre, the anticipation of experiencing Crusade‘s story shift after they’d found the cure but would be chased down to prevent them from distributing it, and the loss of not being able to follow and finish that story.
Let’s start the rumor mill ourselves: Marjean Holden is on board for that secret Crusade miniseries project!
We have more voicemail from you guys to go through! Tim and Summer also lament the fact that they completely forgot to ask David Allen Brooks about the pak’ma’ra porn gag.
Kudos to Gary’s April Fool’s Joke that he posted here… but be wary of payback in kind, sweetheart!
Tim and Summer chat with David Allen Brooks, about how he got into acting, how he approached the character of Max Eilerson, the research into being a scientist and archaeologist, the differences he observed between working on a science fiction drama compared to “just another” police procedural, the fans of Max, where Max’s story arc might have taken him, and much more.
The Babylon 5 Scripts Team sent Tim and Summer a surprise this week, and just around the same time that they are releasing this latest scriptbook into the wild, you can hear us give you a sneak peek into the book’s contents.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer are joined by The Jason Davis and Edmund Boys to discuss “The Path of Sorrows”.
Questions abound because of this episode, about the pasts of our crew, about how many more secrets may have been revealed to us over time, and much more.
Jason talks about how this episode was one of the points of contention between TNT and JMS because it was character building (just not how they asked for it?), and more.
