We have talked about some personal stuff in our lives on Jumpgate, but this time we went a little farther. Given that this episode was ALL about “the evil Ex-” for Talia and Londo, we decided to share some hard-earned advice on relationships, drawn from our own colorful experience. Most of us are replete with stories of women or men in our younger lives who misrepresented themselves, manipulated us, lied to us, or just plain went crazy. While they make for compelling conversation while getting drunk, it is often in seeing them for who they really are that allows us to know ourselves better, and maybe find ourselves with someone who’s a better fit, later.
This was kind of an experiment… we hope these stories did not bore or offend anyone. But like a lot of other things we’ve addressed in this podcast, we hope to leave the world a little better for having listened to us. 🙂 In any case, Londo got what he was looking for: a single wife who respects him and is brutally honest with him. Talia also got what she wanted: good and final riddance to the worst kind of Evil Ex, an empath.
You can fall in love with the podcast HERE, and like an overly-attached girlfriend, we keep bringing you links week after week, whether you want them or not. 🙂
Carel Struyken – A Very TALL actor, renowned for such strong, silent roles as Mr. Homm from ST:TNG and Lurch from the 90’s Addams Family movies.
Trojan Sexual Olympics – Speaking of Londo’s Centauri sexual olypmpics, we offer this TV ad from Trojan Condoms… IT IS NSFW, AND NOT FOR KIDS!!!! Still freaking hilarious. 🙂
Black Mirror – It was not, in fact “Dark Mirror” as we said on the podcast. It is, in fact, a Brittish TV show that is uneven overall, but the outrageous first episode is the best, IMHO.
Peter David – The writer of this week’s episode and overall fanboy-done-good, Peter David has been producing some of the best essays, genre novels, TV and movie scripts for well over 30 years. You can do a general search on him, but I decided to link to one of his best works, a Christmas essay. Trust me, it’s awesome, just go read it. 🙂
