Spoo: the other grey meat

Just finished watching the first chapter in the newest Babylon 5 series, Babylon 5 : the Lost Tales, and I'm happy to report that Joe Straczynski has not lost his touch ... HURRAH! This is the beginning of a direct-to-DVD anthology series ... this volume is called "Voices in the Dark" and contains 2 35-minute interlinked stories that take place in 2271, in the days leading up to the tenth anniversary of the founding of the Interstellar Alliance. "Over Here" is set on B5 and features Colonel Lochley, while "Over There" is set on a Minbari ship and features President Sheridan and the technomage Galen. Both mesh perfectly into the stories that we already know, both past and future, while adding their own little twists to the whole saga.

The scene that shoulda been there and wasn't (although it's not difficult to imagine): Sheridan fantasizing kicking Galen's ass all the way across the galaxy and back ***GRIN***

Extras: interviews with Straczynski, Bruce Boxleitner, Tracy Scoggins, and Peter Woodward; memorial tributes to Andreas Katsulas and Richard Biggs; plus Straczynski's project diaries and profiles of some of the behind-the-scenes crew.

Looking very (and impatiently) forward to the next episodes! :-)

P.S. Highlight of the production diaries ... sock puppets of Londo, Sheridan, Galen (looks like a blue-eyed Jawa) and Lochley ... LOL!!!!!!!
