In this episode, Josué and I discuss The War Prayer, from season 1 of Babylon 5. We discuss The Homeguard, earth first politics, and the strange concept of caring for others.
In this episode, Josué and I discuss Babylon 5’s “Infection” a story about stealing bioweapons from ancient cultures and then using them against others, heedless of the warnings and troubles they bring with them. So get our your archeology sets and lets play. Some experience required.
#3: This was the episode that made it clear to me that Josué and I were going to generate some good discussions out of the Babylon 5 story. When you join us on these journeys, it’s really not meant to be about a cult of personality. Hopefully, you do enjoy the conversation that Josué and I have here. We are after all giddy geek kids at play in the fields of science fiction, but the purpose is to help others geek out and play with us. On the one hand, this journey is very personal. Babylon 5 is such an important part of my life, and I want to share it with my friends. I want other people to find the meaning that I found, and I want to laud this fantastic piece of storytelling so that others might engage with this story. I also hope to wrest new meaning from the clutches of the story. Given that the story has taken me where it has, I don’t mind retreading the path to see if I left anything behind. Josué has fresh eyes, viewing this as a first- time viewer, he offers new insight that I might have missed. But then there is you, dear listeners and fellow geeks; your perspective matters as well. I hope that you join us in the discussion and take this incredible ride with us.
