It’s the season finale of the first season of Babylon 5. Josue and I spend some time trying to talk through the loose ends, and then we go into a few digressions. That’s not unheard of really. Season 2 is coming soon.
This episode was lost for a while but thanks to the eagle eyes of listener Ryan Slewinski, we discovered that this one was never presented.
This time around, Josue and I discuss “The Quality of Mercy” an episode that has us discussing the ramifications of the future’s rehabilitation programs, and the moral uncertainty of a world where criminals are used as utilitarian slaves. It’s a fun and sometimes mindtaxing journey, but at least you won’t be mindwiped.
Greetings one and all. Our newest Conspiracy of Light episode investigates the strange goings-on in the Babylon 5 season 1 episode “Babylon Squared”. It’s Delenn’s big day and the Gray Council has summoned you all to take part.
Ok, yes, it has been a long time, but Josue and I never stopped recording, and I am looking forward to the continuation of our trip through B5. This time around we talk about Epsilon 3 and The Great Machine.
Our discussion of the Babylon 5 episode “Eyes” is a valiant attempt to flesh out any real value to this lackluster Babylon 5 episode. In retrospect, I think it’s an episode that anyone checking out the Babylon 5 universe can just as easily skip. Certainly some good moments, but not enough to make you feel connected to the world of B5. It does however make me just want a sitcom of the adventures of Garibaldi and Lanier. Even just a cartoon would be fine. It would be like an alien version of The Odd Couple. I am certain for those of a certain age, My Favorite Martian and Mork & Mindy already did that but still, perhaps we need that oddness in our lives. Bond villains not withstanding, the Grey and Benzayne stories would be appropriate as a double feature with Garibaldi and Lanier on Saturday mornings. At least in my imagination, in a place where reality just went to a more silly place instead of the damned seriousness of this time, these things all happened. Tune in next time for less Meh.
