Podcast 127: Babylon 5 Series Wrap Up

 Well, we did it folks. We set out with a mission to approach Star Trek (TNG), The West Wing, and Babylon 5 from an analytical approach. While we prepare to - as Pete likes to say - "cleanse our palates" with a Poetry podcast, please enjoy our wrap up of Babylon 5 as a series, as well as a brief discussion about the three "original shows" of TrekWest5. At the end of the series wrap up, you'll find a discussion Pete and I had back at podcast 108 (Season 2 wrap up). The conversation was great, but it ranged so far afield from the topic of Season 2 wrap up that we decided to hold it in reserve until this podcast.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    Joey's Culture Corner: The Belgariad by David Eddings
    Facebook Find of the Week: Listener Carbonite Man - Babylon 5: In Memory of Andreas Katsulas
    The ????? bell lives on
    Wrap up of The Next Generation, West Wing, and Babylon 5
    Objects of Fandom
    Music by Shayna Zaid
