  • Hello to you all

    I hope I've got it right by starting this thread here, I'm used to some rather loosely moderated forums recently so I apologise if I've gone to the wrong place but I didn't see any kind of 'introductions' thread.

    Anyway to cut a long story short I am an avid Babylon5 fan and currently just watching through the story for the 6th time and at this moment watching Series2 Ep5 "The Long Dark".

    Anywho, I was doing a quick web-search for the recipe for Bagna Cauda (haven't we all ) when I ran accross this site. After spending most of my life coming across people who haven't experienced the real marvel that is the story told in Babylon5 (and consequently leading me to try and spread the good word), imagine my surprise to come across an active forum and community in support of JMS's work.

    So I'm hoping to stick around and maybe even make a few posts

    Hi, Nutter, welcome!

    Starting this thread is fine. It's always nice when another fan joins us. I know what you mean about always being among people who don't know about B5 ("oh, yeah, that's like Star Trek, right?"). I don't think I've ever re-watched the show without noticing something new.

    Feel free to join a conversation, start a conversation, whatever you're comfortable with. One thing I always like to ask: How did you first discover B5?

      Welcome to the forums! hope you enjoy it here. You've watched the show a full 2 times more than me! Hardcore . Of course, I'm rewatching DS9 right now...which limits the b5 rewatch time.

        Very true one of B5's redeeming features is it's re-watchability, noticing the development of each character and seeing where the threads start.

        I watched it on the first UK televised showing, I was too young to really appreciate the plot subtleties but as the show progressed I was drawn in. Whilst most donÆt have the attention span to watch and appreciate B5 all the way through I think it wouldnÆt have had the same impact on me if it hadnÆt been structured the way it was. The story grew as I did and so has always held special meaning.

        Yeah most of my re-watch's are down to trying to get other's hooked, every time I managed to get someone to watch the entire story they've been pleasantly surprised and usually get something from it, even if it's just a deeper sense of self-reflection.

          Yes, every person I've gotten to watch the entirity of the show has the same reaction. Those who watch a couple episodes and quit never understand. And then of course there's those that say "Babylon 5? That sounds dumb."

              Ingredients

              3/4 c olive oil
              Baguette slices
              3 to 4 c assorted raw vegetables: red or white Belgian endive leaves, fresh fennel slices, celery sticks, red or yellow bell pepper strips, or zucchini slices
              1 can (2 oz.) anchovies, drained & minced
              1/4 c (1/8 lb.) butter
              3 tbsps minced garlic

              Directions

              Step #1 In a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan over med-heat/flame, melt butter.
              Step #2 Add olive oil, garlic, & anchovies; stir until mixture is bubbling.
              Step #3 Meanwhile, arrange vegetables on a platter & baguette slices in a bowl.
              Step #4 Pour bagna cauda into a 1 1/2- to 2-c fondue pot & set over a candle or medium-low alcohol or canned-heat flame (see notes); stir mixture often & adjust heat as needed so garlic doesn't burn.
              Step #5 Serve with vegetables & baguette slices.
              Enjoy the Bagna Cauda recipe

                  Hello Nutter, welcome to JMS inspired cuisine corner.

                  Hopefully someone will be able to point out the vegetarian equivalent of the perfect corned beef sandwich.

                  Of all the sliced meats, one would imagine that corned beef would be easiest to make an analogue for, it hardly tastes of meat to start with.
