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 Josué 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.
This episode of Conspiracy of Light is an exploration of the Babylon 5 Episode- Grail. The story allowed Josue and I to explore questions of faith as well as science. Apparently neither one of us has an empty of full glass. Still it made for a good discussion, and if you like to hear us yammer, we do a lot of it.
Thanks for Listening.
This episode is a discussion between Josué and I about the Babylon 5 episode, “TKO”. I think it is fair to say that this episode of B5 is not one of the best, but for Josué and I, it generated a really good discussion about therapy and power over others. It was a fun discussion and I think you will agree that there is still something to say about this episode that is worth talking about.
