BPP Novel 6: Betrayals
The sixth standalone novel we’re discussing is Betrayals, by S.M. Sterling. Raul offered a very useful way to view this book: as an anthology composed of two short stories and a novella. Taking this view helped frame or structure what … Continue reading →
BPP Novel 5: The Touch of Your Shadow, the Whisper of your Name
Next up, we read The Touch of Your Shadow, the Whisper of Your Name, by Neil Barrett, Jr. This is the fifth of nine stand-alone novels. Given how the first four weren’t that great, we were hopeful this one might … Continue reading →
BPP Novel 4: Clark’s Law
The next stand-alone novel we read and reviewed is Jim Mortimore’s Clark’s Law. This is the only novel he wrote within the B5 universe, although he has writing credits for novelizations within the Dr. Who universe. The print copy was … Continue reading →

An Entertaining Podcast!
This is the type of podcast that is perfect for when you’re relaxing at the end of the day and simply wish to immerse yourself in the world of BABYLON 5. Also noteworthy is the hosts’ attention to CRUSADE, the short-lived spinoff of BABYLON 5. For me, the experience of listening is best when I have recently viewed the episodes, but it’s also worth noting the 5 films receive praise as well. In short, you will not be disappointed. Simply listen to one episode of the podcast, and then you’ll be hooked.
A nice Introcast mix for new and old
I came upon this after other Babylon 5 podcasts. The format is good (spoiler respectful) meaning of it is appropriate and of interest, some things will be told ahead of time, but it does not spoil big surprises for newer watchers. This level of hinting is good for veterans as well.
I have 6+ rewatches under my belt over the past 20 years so I don't need to see the episodes, as I can view all of the scenes in my mind.
The podcast is now in the fifth season as I write this and I am up to the third season podcast episodes for the Trilogy / Quadrilogy (fans know what I mean) but will catch up soon. I can't wait to hear the rest.
Thank you for a labor of love that helps pass the time.
Need your Babylon 5 fix?
A very entertaining podcast that should be required listening for every Babylon 5 fan. A very in depth discussion of episodes and interesting background for the episodes.
