Episode 97: “In the Kingdom of the Blind”

No more pastels for the Regent, no.

Damian London portrays a very different Regent from the sweet old man we used to know as Londo begins to suspect very dark things are afoot in his supposedly liberated world. It’s an episode full of delightful double acts (Londo/G’Kar), palace intrigue, clumsy politics (hello, Byron) and dark omens. But is there a STORY here? And if not, is that all right?

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!
