It was either in the script book or in an interview somewhere that Paul Winfield had some trouble with remembering large amounts of dialogue for his scenes; so perhaps they didn't bring him back in another episode because of that.
I also remember a comment, iirc by JMS (Jan help?), that Paul Winfield made some disparaging remarks about the Babylon 5 crew being "unprofessional" compared with the folks at Trek.

"The Geometry of Shadows"? Yes that's a perfect example of cast commentaries and how two-edged they can be. Personally, I loved it, because I like the banter and so forth, but I can see how some folks aren't as entertained.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

I'm not really interested in commentaries to be entertained (unless they're going to go all out and do something like the Tropic Thunder commentary), but I'm a film snob like that. JMS' commentaries are well-prepared and informative, at least of the ones I've listened to. I prefer those, and wish he could speak to every episode (alas!).

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

^I found that it was mostly Christian and Doyle that were the ones who made a farce out of the commentaries, while the others put a little more consideration into their comments, especially Bruce and Peter Jurasik. I also thought Pat Tallman was quite good, in her commentaries, discussing her particular scene and what went on.

Bruce of all the "human" actors seemed to get the show the most, respected what JMS was trying to do with the format and the story.

At the risk of sounding maudlin... I regret never having heard Andreas Katsulas on a commentary.

I can't find anything in the archives or in the Jane Killick books. In the Other Voices script book for the episode, Larry DiTillio comments that Winfield had some problems with the long speaches and that they had to be cut down and that there was kind of a circus atmosphere when shooting that episode with so many extras.

Agreed completely. I'm completely in agreement with why he didn't (WB wouldn't pay him) but I'd very much have liked to get his insights into his character.

Thanks; I don't know where I saw it. But what I recall was that he said the cast/crew goofed off and that it seemed less professional than the Trek guys. I dunno maybe it was an interview with Paul Winfield. Or my memory is shot.

Well, JMS did say that laughter was a sound you heard a lot there.

Perhaps ther was an interview in the B5 magazine? At some point I'd like to catalogue just what's in each of them since it was always much more than showed in the Contents listing. Some day when I've got more round tuits.

I wish outtakes were included in the B5 dvds (like those in ENT dvds...finally!) The only one outtake I remembered was the joke they played on Michael O'Hare in S1.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

There are outtakes on the B5 DVDs, but they're hidden. Also, incomplete. They cut the DS9 reference from the season 3 reel, for instance.

I think season 1 is the only B5 set where the hidden egg is the series trailer rather than the outtakes.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

The gag reels for the Season 2 and Season 3 boxed sets are hidden as easter eggs. However, the Season 4 and Season 5 boxed sets have their respective gag reels as separate tracks on the last disk of the set. Even so, all of those are still only a subset of the uber-reel for all five seasons.

I believe the complete blooper reel for each season can be found on Youtube.
