BPP – Feedback December 2017

Now I have a machine gun…

Ho!  Ho!  Ho!

You’ll shoot your eye out kid.

Uh… no.

We’re not the Classic Christmas Movie podcast.

But we’re also not entirely the Babylon Project Podcast today, either.  Well, yes we are, but tonight we’re not talking about, “The next exciting episode…”  What we are talking about is all the wonderful feedback we have gotten from you, our listeners.  For Jim, Raul, and now JP, hosting, Troy’s brilliant editing and Anthea’s voice on the credits, this podcast has been a labor of love that we do without expectation of, well, anything.  That we get any feedback at all is humbling.  That it is such quality and thought provoking feedback is an absolute honor.

So tonight, this is your show.  Your thoughts and comments are a special treat for us, so we’re returning the favor with a special treat episode.  Just in time for a holiday gift back to you.  Have a very Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Yule, Holiday, or whatever you do to celebrate this season.

And thank you!  Thank you for another wonderful year shared with us.  So party like a Centauri and we’ll see you in the New Year!

  1. If you want to see video games which have more than a little B5 influence you should really play the original Mass Effect trilogy, released in 2007-2012. It’s more than a little obvious that the world, technology and even some of the plot elements are heavily influenced by B5. And it has some great characters, and one big plot spanning three games, where the decisions made in the first game may have consequences in the third game, originally released almost five years later. The games all have their problems, but they’re still some of my favourite games of the last decade.

  2. Love the podcast. I’ve been catching up (currently on BPP103 but listened to this episode today since it seemed a little more time-bound). Speaking of fandom v. fandom, I used to joke with a friend of mine that DS9 was better than B5 (just because he was a huge fan, and it made for a fun fake-rivalry in high school). He had been taping all episodes as they were on first run, so he brought the VHS tapes to school and let me borrow them (he was sort of like a B5 guide before the internet, and since I didn’t have cable TV, it was my only way to see the series). I’ve rewatched the series multiple times in the past 20 years, and I still like it. My only major complaint is that the dialogue really doesn’t hold up for me. As an adult I see a lot of the dialogue as stilted and off in some way that I can’t put my finger on it. Your thoughts?

    • The way I think concerning the dialogue is that it is often more formal in many cases. I’m used to that personally, but mostly because my job involves a lot of communication that requires a more formal approach to both speech and written word. I also deal with Europe a lot and the language in those cases does tend to be somewhat more “proper.”

      Now, I am going to assume you are not referring to some of the rather long monologues that JMS likes to write; particularly for Delenn and G’Kar. Let’s face it, not even babbler-me speaks like that. 🙂

  3. Follow-up comment. I am delighted to see Space: Above and Beyond come up more than once 😉 – Love the show (Fox really fireflied it before they fireflied firefly :p). Needs a reboot. But of course, this isn’t the S:AAB show 😉
