Re: End of Shadow War = Lame

So, the Shadows are the Democrats, eh? Deceitful, vicious, hiding behind the scenes, setting people against one another, surgically altering peoples' minds to be compliant agaents of chaos or obedient tools to run their machines...

Yeah, I can see it.

I've got a Better Idea. Let's...oh, I dunno...talk about Babylon 5 instead.

Babylon 5 trivia for stuff that never was: The original name for the Shadows was the Shadowmen. Kinda Saturday morning cartoon-ish, I think. And in the original draft of "The Gathering", Kosh had a mate named Velana.

He's just having a bit o' evil fun. After all, we knwo the Shadows are really Libertarians.

No kidding. "Shadows" is much more effective and dramatic. Okay, so I jsut watched "Z'ha'dum" again last night.

And in the original draft of "The Gathering", Kosh had a mate named Velana.
Was her last name Torres?

I wasn't attempting to make a political statement. I was listing the public perceptions of the two political groups and how they matched up with how the Vorlons and Shadows were described in the series. That's all.
