Discussion: We’ve already reposted JMS’ comments on moving forward with more Babylon 5, and the fan reactions are still flying all over the Internet. So Summer, Jeffrey, Gary, Michael and Brad discuss, in great detail and depth, with occassional comment from the chat room.
We have extra feedback to get through, so you know what that means? Feedbackapalooza, part 2!!
Tim, Summer, Jeffrey and Michael are joined by Anna, live in studio (she’s in town for a conference), and she’s just in time to experience Feedbackapalooza!
But first, Summer gets to ask Jeffrey about the production side of detonating Kosh’s helmet in “Falling Towards Apotheosis”, and we learn about the dangers of using too much primacord on a television set.
Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer, with James, discuss the pivotal events in Falling Towards Apotheosis. Taking on the Vorlons is a bold move, even for someone who’s returned from the dead.
Deep Geeking: Summer welcomes SciFi Ranter Girl , graphics designer and huge B5 fan Cat Hulberg, and Susie the Southern Geek How to Grow Your Geek to come onboard and Deep Geek on “The Hour of the Wolf”, the Season 4 premiere episode.
Here you have the women in John Sheridan’s life going through various stages of denial, grief and bargaining, in an attempt to find out for sure what happened to him at Z’ha’dum, and by the end of the episode, there’s still no closure in dealing with what happened, nor any new insight into knowing what did happen.
Deep Geeking: Call it uber geeking. Mike McCafferty rejoins Tim and Summer to discuss “Z’ha’dum”, the season 3 finale, containing one of the most delicious and exasperating cliffhangers ever visited upon scifi tv fans.
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.
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: Tonight’s geeking focuses on “Ceremonies of Light and Dark”, and some of the undercurrents simmering below the surface story.
