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

The list of people associated in some way with B5 who are already deceased is already quite significant. It's sad, but at least their work is around and still being discovered and enjoyed.

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

And, on the bright side, Claudia Christian is still around & makin' appearances at SciFi cons. She even has a binder of non-family friendly photos she'll sign.

Too bad I 1) had my nephew with me when I was at a con with her as a guest and 2) wasn't a fan of Babylon 5 a year ago.

If you ever get a chance, be sure to check out the dedication videos to Richard and Andreas out on ZTeam Productions.

That is their B5 related page, and the dedications are linked under the pictures you see of each. I guess there wasn't quite enough material to warrant making one for Tim.

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

Sadly, a number of B5 guest actors and semi-regulars (not to mention behind-the-camera folks) have passed on. A nice page memorializing some of them is here. I've also recently heard that Louis Turenne (Draal #1/Brother Theo) has passed away but I haven't verified that.

Wikipedia says he died in January, but there are no sources. He was too ill to wear the Draal make-up for a second appearance, so it wouldn't surprise me if he passed on. Very sad, though. I imagine he was a very sweet man.

Another actor who isn't on that site is Johnny Sekka who played Dr. Kyle in 'The Gathering'. He died about a year ago.

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

Well, I took a brief break after watchin' Babylon 5: In the Beginning & Thirdspace, and watched NewsRadio - The Complete Fourth Season.

And now, I've cracked open Babylon 5: The Complete Fifth Season - The Wheel of Fire.

With only a few errands to run tomorrow (details at LiveJournal), and nothin' to do on Sunday, I figure I can finish the season in a couple of days, if its as good as the fourth season.

Well, maybe it'll take a little longer than that...

It's not.

But it's okay if you can make it to "The Ragged Edge".

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

Okay, I already don't like the openin' title sequence for this season.

I'll be skippin' over that for the rest of the episodes.

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

Really? The season 5 sequence is my favorite of all of them. I like the retrospective look, the inclusion of so many quotes and so forth. The second half as the credits begin to roll isn't quite as nice as the first half, but I still like it over all.

Well, maybe because I just watched the first four seasons, so a flashback intro doesn't interest me. And, it just seems odd to me that the new character on the show is buried in the second tier credits.

Still don't like it.

Just finished up 'A View from the Gallery', and that has to be the most contrived bunch of bullshit ever put on television.

Though I do get Neroon's "blue collar" avatar entry a couple of weeks ago in Gen SciFi....

I can understand that.

Considering the circumstances surrounding the new character and her timing, there probably wasn't a whole lot that could have been done. There are quite a few SAG rules governing things like credits.

Don't leave it there. Be more specific. Was it the structure, the fact that it was about one-off "lower decks" characters?

Yes! He CAN be taught!
