This is Sarah and this is my Babylon 5 Season 1 review. Wow! I was super nervous recording my first episode of Anomaly Supplemental! Firstly, because Babylon 5 is such a BIG topic, and secondly because it’s such a LOADED topic! Lets face it, everyone knows something about the great debate of Babylon 5 v.s. Deep Space Nine. Even I who claim mostly no knowledge of it, at least know that most likely a Deep Space Nine convention is not going to happen in the same building as a Babylon 5 convention. So I was really curious about what I, a Deep Space Nine fan, would think of Babylon 5.

Now if you are a B5 fan, before you get nervous, let me tell you that I have heard next to nothing about Babylon 5, I haven’t met many people who’ve ever talked about it let alone seen I—so I haven’t been able to slowly form a murderous hatred of the show! My opinion of this show is objective and very true to what it would have been, had I never lain eyes on DS9. And for those of you who’ve never heard of Babylon 5 or, if you’re like me only knew it as the show as “that show with the  guy who has big hair”, I think you will truly think this show is interesting and you’ll want to learn more about it! And for those who cannot stand B5, who actually DO house a murderous rage towards any vestiges of it—be the bigger man (or woman) and listen anyway! Come on! You: A.) Don’t want to ruin your perfect “listening to every Anomaly” streak and B.) You’d miss out on the chance to repeatedly say “This girl doesn’t know what she’s TALKING about!!” Where’s the fun in that? And by all means lets discuss this on the Anomaly Facebook group! A little friendly debate never hurt anyone….that I know to be true.

I want to thank Sue and Jen specifically. They’ve been patient and helpful during this my maiden voyage into Anomaly Supplemental. Thanks girls, you’re both keepers! As with any and every podcast, feedback is like lifeblood (how else can we be sure it’s not just our Aunt Shirley who’s listening?)! So please take some time to comment. It can be audio or written, just email it to the Supplemental gals at moregirlygeekz(at)gmail.com. You can also call our voicemail at 248-419-GEEK (4335) and leave your comment that way. And of course send some love to our big sister podcast, whom you can contact at girlygeekz(at)gmail.com. The Anomaly Podcast and Anomaly Supplemental also would love blog comments, Tweets, and Facebook wall comments on the Anomaly Podcast fan page.

Thank you so much for taking the time to listen, and if life gets you down just remember: “Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!”
