This show, loved by millions, and seen every year since it originally aired in 1965, would never be produced today in our politically correct world. It's just too controversial. This showA show too controversial to make it to production today...

Who do you serve, and who do you trust?

This is one of a series of articles I wrote for The Coalition of Awesomeness blog some time ago. The blog has since gone to an unfortunate (but very awesome) grave so I thought I’d share it here. Those were the focal questions of Crusade, the Babylon 5 spin-off/sequel series that was cancelled before it even aired. I don’t know what the answers to those questions would have been, but I’m pretty confident that the . . . → Read More: Who do you serve, and who do you trust?

Throwing spaghetti on the wall

This post is going to be like throwing spaghetti on the wall: I’m just gonna toss a lot of stuff up here and see what sticks. It worked for Oscar Madison (okay, that was linguini – work with me).

Looks like I am officially blogging. I am too cool for words. (Ironic, isn’t it.)

Thusly did this, my first blogging experience, begin. Pretty sad, really, but there you have it. Now here we are, three years and over 400 posts later, and I figure it’s about time I looked back to see if I’ve ever . . . → Read More: Three years of yammering on…

Babylon 5 – the final word (mostly)

J. Michael Straczynksi, the creator of the 5-year TV series Babylon 5 in the 90′s, has been doing little side stories from the B5 universe on and off since the show ended. A few TV movies, a canceled series (Crusade), a backdoor pilot (Legend of the Rangers – LOTR), and a direct-to-DVD anthology (B5: The Lost Tales – TLT) were all made, and none of them really reached the same level of quality as the . . . → Read More: Babylon 5 – the final word (mostly)

Lee came up with a good Friday Top Five this week. What are the 5 best shows that met an untimely end at the hands of the network suits?

Crusade: What would have happened

I just watched Disc Three of the Crusade series, written by J. Michael Straczynski (JMS). Luckily, I was apparently watching one of the early discs produced since it had his commentary on the episode Racing the Night. (All of his commentaries were removed from later discs at his request since Warner Bros. broke their contract with him by not including his full commentary, including criticisms of TNT.)

I just listened to the commentary and wanted . . . → Read More: Crusade: What would have happened
