Babylon 5 JMS Script Book #2

I know, I haven’t been here for a while. <ducks behind Garibaldi for protection> Things have been rather busy, and my computer, well it’s almost three years old now so while I can easily watch B5 like normal on a DVD player, screenshots are another matter and my computer no longer seems to like DVDs very much. I’m working on a solution for this. In the mean time, here are a few thoughts on the second JMS script book.

This book finishes up season one script wise, which include some very powerful episodes: Signs and Portents, A Voice in the Wilderness, Babylon Squared, and Crystalis, among others. Besides these gems from the B5 universe, JMS gives us the story of the carpet that shows us his method of story telling. In the back, we get notes and memos which describes minor characters, some of which were never used or used less than JMS was hoping and episode concepts. It is particularly interesting to see the ones that didn’t get made, and the ones that did get made but in a very different form than originally envisioned. As always JMS has commentary on all of the episodes, including Claudia Christensen being stuck in a star furry during an earthquake . . .

A must have for fans.
