What did you think of this “urban cop show” edition of Babylon 5? Let us know here. (But go to the other place if you want to spoil future episodes. You know the place.)
This one’s a standalone episode that doesn’t have a lot to do with the overarching plots of the Shadow War and the Earth conspiracy–or is it? Please include your spoilery thoughts about “Convictions” here.
Lord help us, we did it again.
“White Star (A Babylon 5 Parody in the Style of JoCo)” is based on Jonathan Coulton’s song “Shop Vac,” which was released under a Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC 3.0), with new lyrics and vocals by Chip Sudderth. You can buy Coulton’s music at his web store.
New season! New ship! New title sequence! New characters! Babylon 5 takes an assured step forward as Captain Sheridan and Delenn take the fight to the Shadows, while Morden’s malign influence spreads to the capitals of Centauri Prime and…Earth.
How do we celebrate this momentous episode? With another stupid song parody.

Welcome to a new season of Babylon 5! A whole lot of new stuff emerges: new ominous alliances, Marcus Cole, the White Star. What did you think of them?
“So we’ve traded in a Keffer for a Marcus.”
“Yup. I like the new model.”
Spoil away, folks!
The second season finale ends with a bang (alas, Centauri warship; alas, core shuttle) and a whimper (alas, kind of, Keffer). How does “The Fall of Night” do in wrapping up a season and whetting the appetite for season three? Let’s ask our returning Control Group!
So, what’s your reaction to the Season 2 finale? Leave your spoilers in the other thread.
“As with anything else, it’s the thought that counts.”
And so, the second season of Babylon 5 ends with a battle, a revelation, and lots of rotoscoping. Please share your comments about what happens in this and future episodes.
The Audio Guide to Babylon 5 welcomes Lynne and Michael Damian Thomas of Uncanny Magazine and numerous SF podcasts to talk about “Comes the Inquisitor”! As you might expect, the five of us go on at great length about whether a Creepy Victorian Antagonist makes this too Star Trekky an episode, a pivotal elevator scene, the continued development of G’Kar, and of course just what this interrogation means for Delenn and Sheridan. And, in the spoiler section, shade shall be thrown at certain long-haired actors.
