  • Script Book # 8 - SPOILERS

    Here we are, a nice clean thread for the new book. First book of the second half of the Babylon 5 Scripts project. Got some really great episodes in this one.

      The thought of B5 looking like that one drawing kinda makes me want to hurl.

        Wait'll you see the early Station concept (assuming you haven't already). Yeah, some of the Ledger art is a little cartoon-ish, which gave rise to the rumor for a while that JMS had tried to sell the show as animation before it was picked up by WB. Delenn sure underwent some changes, too.

        It's a great use for the back cover, though, that's for sure!

          Okay, at long last I got my Volume 8. Not that it took overly long, it just always seems a long wait. I didn't luck out with this one so it arrived today when I'd hoped it'd zip right out and make it on Friday.

          Where to start...

          --the 'accounting error'. I joked about 'why's it always an accounting error' over on the moderated group but this was a doozy! As was the solution that kept the show going. Talk about committment!

          --The early Season 4 outline. Definitely some different elements from what we got. Interesting that there might have been some connection between Sheridan and Garibaldi.

          --The artwork. People have commented on the resemblance of the actual Station to er...an...um...well, a 'marital aid' in the past. Wait'll they get a look at the original concept!

          --Artwork continued...I really like the first drawing of Laurel Chang, too. And already she liked her coffee!

          --VERY interesting paragraph at the bottom of page 13, don't you think?

          I really really really am enjoying these books.

          Really.

                I refer the honourable lady to my post about comparative delivery times in the off-topic discussion thread, which also refernces my current reading script-book rate.

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. "

                  I got my book today at 1:45. It is now 3:40 and I have only read the first few pages. PTEN looks like it's in trouble! Imagine that!

                            Got mind today only a few pages in but something that did catch my eye was on page 13 JMS is talking about a meeting he had with WB about B5 I quote "As a rule after B5 finished its run, they called of it..though there may be something of interest from thing one to convey in volume nine." Could we have some B5 news. We can always hope against hope. Not much else to say at this point other than Joe John and Doug really seemed to carry this show on there backs.

                            Also is it might be just me but who is Doug Netter. I mean the more I read about the Joe the more I wonder about who is Doug Netter, and what did he do exactly. I know while its not said in Volume 8 for other sources that it was Doug that took out the loan that saved B5. And Joe always talks about Doug so Positively its a puzzle and I like puzzles.

                              Doug Netter was JMS's, partner in Rattlesnake Productions, the company they formed to sell B5. Doug generally handled business matters, leaving creativity to JMS. And, as JMS likes to say, take phone calls the start out with the caller saying "Do you know what he's done NOW?!"

                              Saw JMS at Heroes con today and he still couldn't say anything about the new B5 project except that he did mention he didn't want to do a big movie. He hopes to be able to say something at San Diego Comic Con.
