    Babylon Podcast #292: A Show and its Writers Room

    Speculation: Time changes us all, in many ways. So given how busy JMS is writing many things other than new stories for the new Babylon 5, it isn't likely he'll want to or be able to do all the writing himself. So naturally, Tim posits the questions about writers and writers rooms, and we run amok from there.

    Discussion: Tim and Summer just can't help themselves. We indulge in some wildly unfounded speculation on the announcements about the new Babylon 5 series, plus ask a few questions out loud about what we could be watching on The CW someday.

Fitting tribute to one of the greatest shows

I’m not going to vouch for the production quality, as it has always had some difficult moments.

I will vouch for their thoroughness and guest interviews! Wow! Thank you Summer and Tim (and Jeffrey) for keeping the flame lit! This has been one of my favorite podcasts for a long time!

The Definitive B5 Guide

The Babylon Podcast is an archive for the ages. Our one last hope for the interviews, insight and deep analysis of Babylon 5. Funny and warm hearted, Summer and Tim take you through all the highs and low of the series and are alway on point with the exception of Tim’s comet. Dive deep into the brilliance that is the Babylon 5 podcast.

Just when it felt lonely being a Babylon 5 fan...

Finding this podcast, after too long a time feeling lonely as a B5 fan, was just what I needed. Based on the first several episodes, I feel that all podcasts should aspire to be more like this one. It’s great to listen to fans having fun obsessing over what they love and not mainly or mostly promoting themselves or their other podcasts.

Thanks to the people who make this for creating an ideal fan-made show about their love of an amazing science fiction series and not just a show about members of a fandom in love with the idea of being part of a fandom.
