Episode 96: “Secrets of the Soul”

As Steven discovers a long-buried secret about an Alliance race, Byron discovers an even more deeply buried secret about telepaths in EVERY race–just as life is getting even rougher for his followers in Down Below. How is the telepath story arc faring, now that we’re looking at it 20 years later? And what the heck IS a BCFMO, anyway?

Earhart’s: “Strange Relations” Spoiler Space

When Chip first watched this episode, back in the day, he had this delayed reaction of, “Oh, yeah. Telepath colony? Of course Bester would show up!”

Chip is not very smart.

Please feel free to discuss future episodes of Babylon 5 and all the hints to the future that are seeded in this episode. Which Chip probably missed at the time as well. Because he’s not smart.

Episode 94: “Learning Curve”

We use the word “spackle” a few times in this podcast. We like that word. Rolls off the tongue. MEANWHILE, for the second episode in a row the stars of the show aren’t our regulars. What’s up with that? Is it worth it to get the delightful Turhan Bey back? It’s a deep dive into Rangers and Minbari, and an exploration of the ever more fraught partnership between Garibaldi and Lochley in this episode of B5AG!

Episode 93: “A View from the Gallery”

DEPLOY THE GREEK CHORUS! Two never-before-seen minor characters Rosencrantz and Guildenstern their way through the space station and their cast. In Spoiler Space for the previous episode, our intrepid podcasters expressed their dread of “A View from the Gallery.” Was it misplaced? Did the memory cheat? Are we on Team Mack and Bo now?

Zocalo: Spoiler-free Discussion of “A View from the Gallery”

Mack and Bo are your guides to the mysterious world of Babylon 5 (and Babylon 5). And yet, you’ve presumably seen four seasons and change, so you pretty much know the place already, right? What did you think of their observations, the unusual format of the show, and what spoo tastes like? (Spoilers for the rest of Season 5 go in the other thread, please!)
