BPP 308 – Messages From Earth

President Clark is a creep.  No doubt about it.  We see it in a couple ways in this episode.  First we have his nameless representative from Nightwatch nudging into station security and putting pressure on Zack.  Bet that armband is beginning to feel a lot tighter and noose-like.  Then we have him – and Psi Corp, apparently – trying to put the double cross on the Shadows.  One wonders how much of that is evil and how much is just plain stupidity.  (Hint: we actually find out somewhat at the end of season 4, so stay tuned.)

It turns out that this isn’t the first time that the Shadows have been involved in Earth.  With a Shadow vessel found earlier on Mars and now on Ganymede, it seems it’s up to Sheridan to save Earth from itself.  Do you think anyone is going to notice he’s gone?  Do you think anyone is going to be able to add 2+2 and get 4?

This episode starts of a mini-trilogy in the midst of the season that creates a major shift in the direction of the show.  Join Jim and Raul as we discuss these and many other questions on this next exciting episode of the Babylon Project Podcast.

BPP 305 – Voices of Authority

If this episode gives you a feeling that things are starting to ramp up, you wouldn’t be wrong.

We get several bits from the past becoming important now.  Remember Draal?  Remember the trouble Katherine Sakai got into at Sigma 957?  Remember this little problem with the Shadows in the midst of all this Earth Alliance intrigue?  Actually, let’s include the Earth Alliance intrigue, too.

Did you know those were related?

The audience isn’t the only one to notice something is up.  Zack is noticing.  G’kar is noticing.  It seems with the sending of a Political Officer, that President Clark is noticing.  And they all seem to want some answers.

This is absolutely a “Wham!” episode.  There’s a lot happening.  The arc is advanced in a big way.  Little threads from the past – some planted back in S1 – are pulled together into the main story.

BPP 222 – The Fall of Night

the-fall-of-night-03This is it.  This is the episode you’ve been waiting for.  Prepare to have a lot of questions answered.  Or not.  We get a big reveal for which we have waited since The Gathering.  Or not.  We get a great hour-plus of Babylon 5 discussion.  Or not.  Ok, we certainly do get that whenever you put Jim and Raul on the same podcast.

So you really don’t want to miss it.

Join us as we discuss the incredible season two finale; something Raul calls one of the best season finales in television.  Players’ hands are revealed.  Things planted in season one germinate.  We also see just how well B5 can take care of itself since Gen. Franklin’s “upgrades.”  (Think that might play a role in the future?)

BPP 215 – And Now For A Word

trust_the_corpsOk, I guess we do get some boom today.

In this episode we learn that not everyone at ISN is like our beloved Jane (aka, Maggie Eagan).  The bias of the press is a bit subtle here, but there are still some fair elements.  We’re not sure if the problem is Babylon 5 itself or just the extraterrestrial races.  One certainly gets the impression that there is something going on between ISN and President Clark.  We’ll find out a lot more about that in Season 3, however.

Keep this episode in mind when you watch Severed Dreams in Season 3 and Illusions of Truth in Season 4.
