Thoughtful & Balanced

Really enjoying this podcast as a companion piece with my first viewing ever of Babylon 5. We watch the show and then listen to the podcast (so far thru season 2) up until the episode discusses spoilers. Thank you for being thoughtful and really warning the listener when spoiler discussion will occur. I find the hosts to be thoughtful, intelligent and articulate. I appreciate that they love the series but are willing to be critical in a constructive way as they feel necessary. I especially love that the hosts rarely speak over one another or all at once like some other very annoying podcasts do (especially another Babylon 5 one). These hosts are very professional and respectful to one another even if they offer a differing opinion than their colleagues. (Would love to give extra stars for this if I could.) Nice collaborative effort! I hope the podcast will still be around and I can access episodes as I work my way thru all the Babylon 5 TV episodes.

The Illusion of Truth

I’ve been rewatching B5 for a couple of months - I’ve also been listening to this and one other podcast along the way. I have found the hosts somewhat condescending toward those who don’t hold their views - religious, political, or artistic, but I’ve overlooked that just to have someone revisit with me my fond memories of B5. That said, ...
I didn’t vote for Trump, not do I watch Fox news, but ...
To fail to realize that today’s mainstream media is epitomized by ISN just shows how blinded the hosts are by their particular bias.
And to try to equate it, even in a drive-by, with Fox News - the lone conservative news channel in the lions’ den of liberal news media, is simply silly.
In their defense, the hosts were honest about their prejudice at the beginning of the podcast - hence 2 stars instead of 1.
Sorry guys, I was hoping for a little better from you.
