Talk about the spoilers, from the sponsors to the security cameras…
Here’s a poser for those of you who have never seen Babylon 5 before, and those of you who can put yourselves in that frame of mind: would you show “And Now for a Word” to someone who’d never seen B5 before? Could it stand on its own? Is it an effective introduction to the show?
And what else did you think of it? (No spoilers, thankyouverymuch.)
The Minbari plot threads come back in a big way, Lennier is kung fu fighting, and what sort of monster would space a teddy bear? Let us know what you thought of Peter David’s second B5 episode. Spoilers go thataway.
Nerdy trivia note: “Death first!” was a battlecry cropping up in a lot of Peter David fiction around the time “There All the Honor Lies” aired.
Spoiler comments ahoy!
Here you may discuss everything about “Hunter, Prey” that does not spoil future episodes, including Dr. Everett Jacobs’s magnificent mustache.

If you have never seen Babylon 5 before, you may be wondering what the heck was up with the Ivanova Dance. Rest assured, people who haven’t seen “Acts of Sacrifice” in years may be wondering that as well. But, hey! How about that G’Kar guy, huh? No spoilers for future episodes, please.
Your humble podcast hosts decided as they recorded the episode that this wasn’t so much a setup episode as a payoff episode, so not a lot of spoilery stuff this time around. Were we right? Talk about “Acts of Sacrifice” in the context of future episodes here!
Things have gone from bad to worse for Delenn, while a joyride to preserve his flight pay strands Sheridan in unknown space. What did you think of their misadventures, and about that revelation at the end when General Hague came to visit?
Sheridan flies a plane. Sheridan meets a Narn. Delenn has a meeting. Sheridan has a meeting. Yup, just a run of the mill day on Babylon 5 with absolutely no implications for the rest of the series.
