The Walking Dead: Season 5 Episode 5 – Self-Help

November 13, 2014

Splitting the group up for extended periods was our least favourite thing in Season 4 so it’s annoying that we’re doing that again.

But for the second of three such episodes, at least they’re concentrating on Abraham, who might be our favourite character at the moment.

Babylon 5 – Season 3: Point of No Return Part 1

September 24, 2014

Season 3 gets off to an extraordinarily English start with the introduction of Marcus (we haven’t even got to A Late Delivery from Avalon yet!) and the Thwipping Boys accidentally recreate a scene from Breaking Bad.

Babylon 5 – Season 2: The Coming of Shadows Part 2

September 7, 2014

Former Babylon 5 cynic Simon and longtime fan Jon continue their epic Babylon 5 podcasting session with Simon running the emotional gamut from confusion (IS Kosh actually a Vorlon? Does he still have affection for Londo?) to surprise (they’ve discovered Morden!) to utter joy (Talia’s gone! Hurray!) and more.

Enjoy!

Babylon 5 – Season 2: The Coming of Shadows Part 1

September 2, 2014

Huzzah! It’s the second part of our epic “get a guy who thinks Babylon 5 is crap to watch the whole thing and record his reactions” series.

If you haven’t listened to the Season 1 Podcast, then get thee over there and do that by jove!

If you have, then join us for the first half of Season 2, which begins with Simon’s reactions to the Sinclair-Sheridan swap, after a somewhat awkward confession…

Babylon 5 – Signs and Portents

July 27, 2014

If we dismiss Firefly, for the obvious reasons, then there’s only one real contender for the crown of best Sci-Fi show ever as far as I’m concerned – the epic Babylon 5.

The problem is, I’ve had very few people to discuss it with, because nobody will give it the chance it deserves, which is something I understand only too well, as I was that guy once. The frustration of telling people “I was the same as you – and I was wrong too” year after year has taken its toll, but I’ll never stop trying, because if any show both needs and deserves champions, it is this one.

My co-host Simon is as big a Babylon 5 cynic as they come, even going as far as having watched and disliked Season 1 once before, so I can barely contain my excitement that after 12 years’ worth of almost-constant harassment from me, he’s finally (FINALLY!) giving it another chance…
