  • Babylon 5 Documentary??

    Just found this intriguing Facebook post from Pat Tallman who's currently in the UK with Claudia Christian for a couple of conventions:

Richard Hickcock and Tony met us plus my new besty Neil who helped me shoot the first footage of the Babylon 5 documentary. Love you all muchly and can';t wait to see my pals at the Cock and Bottle tomorrow!
    Emphasis added by me. Hopefully there's more info to come soon.

    I'd definitely buy a B5 documentary. Consider me signed up.

      With luck, some of the London and Belfast fans will find out more and fill us in over the next couple of weekends.

        Bruce and Pat both tweeted last night that Bruce will be in it too. According to Pat, "of course he will, He's our Captain"

        Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

          Good. In that case maybe I can find out more next weekend at MegaCon. You going to come down for it, Glindros?

              I fear to hope that the possible success of this would be a further push to get something new in B5 created, but I'm certainly interested in this for itself.

              BTW, Happy Valen's Day!

And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."

                      Wow, a B5 documentary sounds freaking awesome!

                      I'd love to see interviews with cast, crew and JMS too.

                        This is awesome. Actually I do recall that a television documentary was made several years ago by TNT and hosted by Claudia. If I remember correctly it aired the same night that In The Beginning first aired. I agree that hopefully this new documentary will help breathe new life into the Baylon 5 Universe (which may be wishfull thinking). As some of us have already mentioned in various threads over the years, Babylon 5 was never really promoted that well. If it was, it would've been far bigger than it was and we would've had a few motion pictures by now. Perhaps that is something that will be mentioned in this new documentary.
                        I think JMS himself made a comment a while back that if they can make a Brady Bunch movie, they can make a Babylon 5 movie.
                        Consider myself as one who will purchase this new documentary, if it actually gets released on either Bluray and/or DVD and not just a television documentary that will only be viewed by a small handfull of us.

                          I was chatting with an Austrailian fan of FareScape who said;
                          "And oddly enough, the show never really aired in a decent timeslot down here. Always late night. You figure we could support a locally made drama but we didn't"
                          Is this the curse of exceptional work? At least B5 lasted longer than one season.

                            Thought I'd contribute something relevant to the discussion. In the long, enjoyable night I and several other fans spent in Claudia and Pat's company, PAt whipped out a video camera and had each of us ask two questions, for inclusion in the documentery, as one of my Q's was about possible Lesbian relations between them, I thought I would check with Claudia if it was PG-13 or what. She replied "Pat says it's R rated".

                            With that intriguing titbit, I shall wander away from ye for now

                            Phaze
                            on the "to a definite extent there is more of Claudia as I see her now in the character of Ivanova, her mannerisms, voice and personality I think came to define who she was" ID
                            "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

                              So....SOME movement in the B5 universe, albeit small...but looks like it might not be lost in space after all...but what IS the ultimate aim of the documentary, will dawn a new beginning?
