Jumpgate enters the Babylon 5 universe for the first time, as we watch The Gathering, the Babylon 5 TV Pilot movie! We had some fun with this one. Nick didn’t seem all that impressed, and the episode is as lackluster as we remember from 20 years ago. However, a few things stood out in the re-watch that gave us some food for thought.
We speculate on the Narn regime, telepaths and their histories, the best televised depiction of realistic space combat (to date at that time), Minbari rings of Badass, Zen gardens, and how much we like Vorlons. It was a lot of fun to put this one together, from the opening sequence to our terribly awkward closing. 🙂
Here are a couple links to some stuff we reference! Enjoy the podcast, and tell your friends to subscribe! Thanks!
