    We've never had it so good.

    We are quite lucky all of a sudden.
    George, using assorted British studios for Episode 3 pick ups.
    Doctor Who being made in Wales.
    And now B5.
    All it takes now is for Blake's 7 to come back and it would be like that 1970's British Sci Fi golden age all over again. Talking of the Seventies, It's a real shame to hear about Chris Reeve.
    JMS has a tough act on if he is to try and capture the fun and wonder of films like Superman and the original Star Wars yet whilst maintaing the attention to character and story telling we have come to expect from B5.

    Though, I think there will always be doubt as to how excellent the end product will be until we actually see it.

    Yeah, jms never skimps on character growth and development in B5. I think we can rely on his judgement to balance out the character/plot/ and REALLY BIG EXPLOSIONS AND FART NOISES stuff effectively.

    Though, I think there will always be doubt as to how excellent the end product will be until we actually see it. I really hope it comes across as exemplary. I mean. Really. Hope.

    Maybe. If he's against the flow of traffic, he's fine, but I still wouldn't wish Kings Cross Thameslink on anyone.

It would also be fortuitous to get a place on the train and, once in London, it could be seen as fortuitous to return that day. Rush hour ends at around 8pm, but the backlog can keep going until around 10.00 at night.
    Let's try this again...

    Lots of disruption around Kings X these days:

    More Info

    If JMS is commuting north from central London, he will be going against the flow of commuters. Rather apposite, if you ask me!

    Not knowing the area very well...if one were going to be spending a great deal of time in Hertfordshire, which is apparently near London (pity please on a
    geographically unenlightened American), would it be better to get a small flat
    in London for that time and commute, or get something in Hertfordshire itself?
    How long is the trip? Or is there somewhere in-between that would be salutory?

    jms
    Just noticed this as well. I used to live in St Albans in Hertfordshire and travelled into London every day, firstly by train (for a year), which forced me to take my motorcycle test and ride in. After my first motorcycle crash, I travelled on the train again for a few months until the insurance was sorted out and I could afford a better, faster bike and avoid the taxi drivers.

    Trains leave from Elstree about three or four times an hour and arrive at kings cross thamelink where it connects to the underground. The journey takes just over half an hour, but there is an express which can take twenty minutes. If one takes this at rush hour, it would be extremely fortuitous to get a seat. It would also be fortuitous to get a place on the train and, once in London, it could be seen as fortuitous to return that day. Rush hour ends at around 8pm, but the backlog can keep going until around 10.00 at night.

    I recommend that JMS gets a pad in London (I have friends who will happily put him up on their sofa for a few months) a driver, and sits in the back of the car reading tablod newspapers while he travels up the A1 or M1 Motorway, until he leaves the outskirts of London and gets into the countryside where it actually becomes rather pretty and he can look out the window.

    If he's travelling between rush hours, the train is actually not too bad (it rarely runs on time, there have been at least three major crashes on that line, some people have to sell body parts on the black market to afford a yearly ticket and it occasionally smells of drunken revellers from the night before), but it wends its way through some lovely countryside and you know for definite when you arrive in London.

    But looking at the date of the original message, I bet that JMS already has the information already.

    Yeh, but I also like big explosions as well. Kind of the point sometimes.

    The majority of the movie will be about the People.
    FX will only be used where it Helps the story.
    Not just to impress audiences.

    That's why I speculated that it's the Total Visual Look JMS was investigating.

    Of course, a lot of the Backgrounds might need to be computer generated even when the actors are on the screen, depending on the Location of the action.

    There are other places online where people try to help each other out in a similar manner. For instance, alt.callahans, a virtual bar modeled loosely on Spider Robinson's books has a tradition where the person heads up a thread BB: which stands for 'Best Brains' and asks what they need. It's generally not used for easily obtainable info but almost any BB post will get a fair number of responses from people who know or know where the info needed is.
