[Geek] Return to Babylon 5

Am about halfway through Babylon 5: The Lost Tales - Voices in the Dark. Without spoilering anything, it is somehow just /good/ to see that familiar station hanging in the sky once more with new stories to tell. And as before, they are not necessarily easy stories to tell.

There are only a few of the old cast in this particular one -- Bruce Boxleitner, Tracy Scoggins and Peter Woodward -- and it was largely a labor of love for JMS and those three. But rumor has it that the others are interested in returning for future Lost Tales stories, if this DVD proves successful.

Either way, though the cast is small, these stories still /feel/ like a proper return to Babylon 5, and like they could be the beginning of a new chapter in that story. I am very glad I got this DVD!


Good to hear. I picked it up Tuesday and I'll be watching it sometime over the next day or so with a friend. I would love nothing more than seeing more of the old cast coming back together for additional episodes.
The only painful thing would be the empty spaces that could never be filled due to two of that cast's great actors having passed on.

They actually handle the absences plot-wise in a graceful and rather touching way. And the DVD extras include memorial films to both, made by JMS, Bruce Boxleitner and Tracy Scoggins.
