Did you catch anything in “By Any Means Necessary” reflecting the longer arc of Babylon 5? If so, talk about it here!
“Podcasting again, Uncle Mike?” Garibaldi has a Really Bad Day, but that’s peanuts compared to what almost happens to the Earth Alliance President. We reflect on what happens when Ivanova and Kemmer let their hair down, Garibaldi lets his guard down and Sinclair just tries to be everyone’s Dad.
(Got spoilery thoughts about this and future episodes of Babylon 5? You know where to go.)
Confronted by ghosts, a character hits bottom but bounces: What did you think about “Survivors”? Please share your thoughts and, if you’re new to the show, speculations! (Spoilers for future episodes? They’re in Earhart’s next door.)
Belly up to the bar, have a “Water. Straight up,” and share your thoughts about everything “Survivors” has to say about future episodes of Babylon 5.
Chip: “This is such a depressing (but good!) episode, I’m thinking about editing in a medley into the podcast somewhere to sort of lift our spirits. You know, The Partridge Family theme, Pharrell’s ‘Happy,’ that Ren and Stimpy ‘Happy Happy Joy Joy’ song…”
Jason Snell, host and leader of The Incomparable family of podcasts and this B5AG‘s special guest: “You’re all class, Chip.”
(Note from Chip: There will be no happy medley in the podcast. Not even Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” Because my co-hosts are assassins of joy. But we had a great conversation with Jason about “Believers”!)
So, what did you think of “Believers”? Please comment here, but leave your spoilery thoughts to Earhart’s next door.
It’s the feel-good edition of Babylon 5, a cheery, positive, romp of an episode. Feel free to talk about “Believers” in the context of the rest of the series here.
Na’Toth goes nuts. Earth makes a deal for immortality. A genocidal maniac plots her greatest revenge. And a good cigar is a Cuban. It’s “Deathwalker,” wherein one of the quieter races on the B5 Advisory Council flexes its muscle and Talia contemplates leaving the service industry. Who’s on Team Abbut?
We see an awful lot more of the Vorlons than we have to this point in a story that’s barely contained by 2,500,000 tons of spinning metal. What did you think of “Deathwalker”? Feel free to discuss it without fear of spoilers for the rest of the series.
Chip here, to make a special invitation to take advantage of the spoiler-free threads! We want B5AG to be a welcoming place for people to discover Babylon 5, so if you’re new to the series we’d love to hear from you–and if you’re a veteran, please give your thoughts about the episode on its own merits.
“Oh, don’t mind her, that’s just Na’Toth making friends again.”
Here’s your space to make friends with your fellow spoilerphiles and B5 veterans.
