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

I'm here. Very late but it looks like we need to reschedule, huh?

Sorry, minor crisis (emphasis on minor)

Yeah, a reschedule would seem to be in order. Got a suggestion?

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

The time from 7-9 PM EST was great, I thought. Will you be back in town the weekend of the 26-27th?

Yes. Let's go with Sat. Jan 26th 7 - 9 pm. Might give us more time to recruit more telep.... errr.. participants.

Ho will that work out for anyone?

I should be able to make it, depending on how my move into my new apartment goes the day before. Are we absolutely set on these two episodes, because I'm not bringing my DVD sets with me--I'll just bring copies of the two episodes in question. (?)

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

Yes, I think we are set on these two. There likely won't be much change in the poll results in the intervening two weeks. Plus, it gives folks more time to prepare if they want. Your case is a good example of that.

Good luck on the move!

Thanks, Neroon. Things should be relatively smooth. I'm just not looking forward to hopping on a plane again after going from DC to Washington to Atlanta to Washington all in the span of a few weeks.

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

Thanks for rescheduling this.

I really wanted to participate, but have been a bit under the weather this weekend. Hopefully by the 26th the doctors who spent most of the day on Friday poking & prodding me will have me in better shape.

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

I still think at some future date it would be a cool thing to watch an episode of B5 and an episode of DS9, back-to-back. I don't know the DS9 library as well as most others in here, so it'd depend on you to pick out an episode that would be similar to a corresponding B5 episode.

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

I'd suggest against any arc-heavy episodes, in that case. The desire to watch the next from the same series can distort your opinion of the episode from the other series you're trying to watch.

I had that problem with "Survivors"/"Visionary" once.

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

Yeah...we could pick a B5 and DS9 episode and watch both. That would be fine with me and I'd be glad to assist.

But let's be sure and make it episodes that will NOT lead to any WWE silliness. Lindley might have something in that regard - stand-alones might be better than episodes that might lend themselves to any of that who-stole-from-who stuff.

Or we could pick a theme. For example - the treatment of religion in both shows. That will give us something to compare and contrast, without getting into the WWE stuff.

Or maybe we could do a Phi Corps ep and a Section 31 ep, and talk about how those two organizations impacted the shows or something.

Anyway...there are lots of possibilities.

Something tells me your laying down the law the other day ought to go along way towards preventing any further flare ups for a time. Let us speak no more of it.

Yes, that was a sharp observation.

Or maybe we could do a Phi Corps ep and a Section 31 ep, and talk about how those two organizations impacted the shows or something.
Good one... except we ought to use the Psi Corps.

But that will be for later. Right now I just want us to pull off the one we've planned for.

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

I'm good. Somebody please remind me, though?

BTW, for those interested:

I just got an email from Jaclyn, Captain of the Scripts Team. She said it was okay for me to let people know that Volume 13 will be available to order on January 23.

Woo-Hoo!! This one's got some *great* episodes!
