Babylon 5 JMS Script Book #8

Not only do we get some of the best episodes of the series: Shadow Dancing, Za’ha’dum, The Hour of the Wolf, Whatever Happened to Mr. Garibaldi, the Summoning, Falling Toward Apotheosis, and The Long Night, we get several other goodies as well.

We get several stories of JMS taking physical action against would be thieves. We get the story of how Babylon 5 almost ended because of an accounting error. We get the story how they got Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Boxliner’s wife, to play Anna Sheridan. We are shown an example of how Harlan Ellison helped the show.¬† We get some insight into what JMS’s life was like at the time, and have to wonder, how did he get through this?

We are also treated to some lovely memos describing the direction season 4 would go in, and we get lots of lovely concept art, including one color one on the back cover. More color ones on the remaining back covers as well. Much ended up being changed between the time the concept art was done and the time the show finally went into production, but it is amazing to see how much was still used in one form or another.
