And so it begins! Yes, BABYLON 5 is back on TV. Watch TV has begun showing episodes daily at 5:00pm. If you are in the UK, that is Watch (Sky 109/Virgin 124). Don't miss an episode.
Would you believe 118 comments for just the first day of showing the series! I sure hope someone takes notice. Be sure to use the @Watch_channel twitter handle and link to the Watch Facebook page when posting.

Be sure to visit the the new Free Babylon 5 website. It is time to gather and support the show we know and love.

Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

After months of waiting, Zack Snyder's Superman short, encompassing the entire 75 year history of the character, finally debuted this past weekend at New York Comic Con and it's now made its way online for you to enjoy. Here's what DC had to say about the short:

From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year's Man of Steel...all in two minutes!

Don't forget it will air on Cartoon Network on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:58 p.m. ET and will be available on the DVD and Blu-ray for Man of Steel this November.

I had almost forgotten I had this blog.  It has been a while since I last posted.  Sorry about that.  I have been keeping up the website ( though as well as the Facebook page ( 

There have been a number of new developments on the Babylon 5 front.  The #FreeBabylon5 movement is the main one.  This all started following a mention of Babylon 5 on Breaking Bad a couple of weeks ago.  From there things have moved on.  Ranger Jan Schroeder has made up #FreeBabylon5 buttons and they were given out at New York Comic Con this weekend.  Great start.

There are two polls over at imdb that are of interest:
There are two polls over at IMDb now where you can vote and make a difference. The first is for the best series finale episode. Predictably, 'Breaking Bad' has been winning hands down. But Babylon 5's 'Sleeping in Light' is holding on to #3! Not bad for a show that hasn't been on the tube for a long while! Go to IMDb and cast your vote! It is a great way to show support for the show. 

The second poll is for your favorite story set in the 23rd century. Go to Favorite 23rd Century Story and vote for BABYLON 5. Early voting shows Babylon 5 just ahead of Star Trek.

BBC America ( had a nice shout-out to Babylon 5 for its accuracy in space.  Here's a quote from the article:

"Some do it slightly better than others. "I'd prefer not to single out a single film/book/series for this particular error, because it's so common - but I will laud the old television show Babylon 5, for doing a wonderful job of representing the mechanics of spaceflight inertia so nicely," explains Trollope."

This is all good news.

For those interested in convention appearances, a number of the Babylon 5 cast are scheduled to appear at the SpaceCity Con in Texas January 3-5, 2014.  For more information, go to
