The "bad guys cause chaos" storyline doesn't do much for Char and Patrick when they watch "Infection," but Sinclair's statement to the ISN reporter about going to the stars to the does. Char thinks it's profound, but Patrick's journalistic training kicks in and he knows that no matter how good Sinclair's speech is, it's lengthy and it will be reduced to a mediocre sound byte. But did he like it as a fan? Maybe that’s different.
While Londo is busy romancing Adira Tyree, station XO Susan Ivanova is dealing with the death of her father. Patrick is grateful for the added dimensions to Ivanova’s character development, but he’s cooler on the romance between Londo and Adira.
This episode also includes a Flounder Check-In. Does Patrick still see Stephen Furst as “Food King” when he sees him on screen, or is Vir coming through? Tune in and find out.
Patrick has a bone to pick with Sinclair's command style and calls Dr. Franklin "maybe a little bit of a weirdo" in today's Babble for Five, which discusses S1E02, "Soul Hunter." He also has some theories on why Ivanova is constantly grumpy, whereas he isn't sure what to think about Delenn just yet. Tune in for all of this and more!
He did it! Patrick watched his first episode of Babylon 5 all the way through. Char gets Patrick's initial impressions of the B5 universe at large and then they run through his first impressions of the characters seen in "Midnight on the Firing Line."
His job is to watch the show for the first time. Her job is to avoid spoilers at all costs.
Babble for Five is a video series dedicated to watching and reacting to the sci-fi drama Babylon 5. Cohost Charlynn Schmiedt, who watched the show when it aired on TNT in the late ‘90s, watches an episode of the show with her husband, Patrick, who is watching the show for the first time. They immediately record their thoughts after watching an episode, condense the discussion down to (roughly) five minutes in post, and the end result is a journey that we hope will appeal to those discovering the show for the first time, as well as longtime die-hard fans.
Out of respect for those new to watching Babylon 5, we request that comments DO NOT contain spoilers beyond the episode we're watching so they can follow along with us. We screen comments on the Babble for Five videos for this purpose, and comments containing spoilers will be deleted.
Babble for Five proudly represents The Nerd Party as the network’s first regular vidcast, releasing episodes every Sunday and Wednesday on YouTube.
