What's New Today

Saturday, March 20:

STARGATE SG-1: Did you see the season finale? It was marvelous! It qualifies as cruel and unusual punishment to leave us, frozen in time, until season eight begins, but the episode was just full of precious moments! William DeVane is marvelous as the President -- and Ronny Cox is just superb as Senator Kinsey! I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone that hasn't seen it yet, but I think this was the best episode I have seen in a while.

Robert Picardo: Speaking of Stargage SG-1, Robert Picardo's memorable appearance last week on the series as Mr. Woolsey was awesome. During an interview to talk about his involvement in the new Borg event in Las Vegas, Picardo also talked about his involvement with SG-1. He said that he has been asked back to reprise his Mr. Woolsey next year. "I appeared twice on Stargate, and they've contacted me about some more," Picardo said in an interview. What was it like playing Woolsey? "He has his mind turned around and starts to feel that maybe he's been the henchman of an evil character," Picardo said. "So I'm about to turn on my original employer and investigate him. What's fun is, it's always nice to play a sympathetic character, especially to go from a character who seems to be very creepy and evil at first, and then to have his conscience transformed. It's been a nice journey so far."

Batman Logo BATMAN BEGINS: Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed the new logo from director Christopher Nolan's BATMAN BEGINS. In theaters next summer, the official teaser website for the film, written by David Goyer and produced by Charles Roven, is now online at http://batmanbegins.warnerbros.com/. The new adaptation explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham. Christian Bale stars as Bruce Wayne/Batman; Michael Caine as his trusted butler Alfred; Gary Oldman as Lieutenant James Gordon, a detective on the Gotham police force; Katie Holmes as a childhood friend of Wayne's; Liam Neeson as Wayne's mentor, Henri Ducard; Ken Watanabe as the villainous Ra's Al Ghul; and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, a former board member and sidelined employee of Wayne Enterprises.

CSI: NEW YORK: CBS has confirmed the signing of Gary Sinise for the third installment of the "CSI" franchise. Sinise will play Detective Rick Calucci, a "dedicated and driven crime scene investigator" in "CSI: New York." The show, which is guaranteed a spot on the CBS schedule in the fall, will be set up in an episode of "CSI: Miami" in May.

EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED: "The Lord of the Rings" star Elijah Wood has joined Warner Independent Pictures' EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED. Based on Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling novel and adapted by Liev Schreiber, the film tells the story of a young American Jewish man (Wood) and his quest to find the woman who saved his grandfather in a small Ukrainian town that was wiped off the map by the Nazis. Schreiber will make his directorial debut on the feature. The movie starts shooting June 14 in Prague.

PINK PANTHER: Kevin Kline is in negotiations to team up with Steve Martin in THE PINK PANTHER for MGM and director Shawn Levy. Beyonce Knowles and Jean Reno also star in the project which starts shooting this May in New York, followed by Paris. The new version follows the story of chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kline), who needs an idiot to take over the investigation of the missing legendary "Pink Panther" diamond ring. The person he needs is a fool who will divert public attention that in turn will make him look better when he solves the case himself. He then turns to Inspector Clouseau (Martin). In the original PINK PANTHER films, Inspector Dreyfus was marvelously played by Herbert Lom, who originated the role in 1964's A Shot in the Dark.

STARGATE SG-1: Tonight is the season finale -- and one that promises to leave you hanging -- along with a number of cast members. Who will survive? Don't miss this episode!

KEN FOREE: Coming soon! I have been having a fabulous e-mail chat with Ken Foree. He played PFC Large in the Babylon 5 episode GROPOS and he has been in dozens of movies and TV shows. He has been turning up at sci-fi conventions for his DAWN OF THE DEAD connections and we'll have a special interview with Ken here soon.

Thursday, March 18:
SUDBURY: According to The Hollywood Reporter, former Star Trek: Voyager star Jeri Ryan is in final negotiations to join Kim Delaney in a CBS pilot entitled SUDBURY. Ryan and Delaney would plays sisters, both witches, in the drama.

WONDERFALLS: WONDERFALLS' co-executive producer Tim Minear is imploring genre fans to tune into the new fantasy show. WONDERFALLS, which chronicles the plight of a young woman (Caroline Dhavernas) who must follow the orders of talking inanimate animals at the Niagara Falls gift shop where she works, debuted on March 12 to less than stellar ratings despite mostly excellent reviews. Minear wrote in an open letter to fans, "There are several things stacking the odds against us. Our timeslot, charmingly known as 'The Fox Friday Death Slot,' is quickly living up to its name. There has been much confusion and differing opinion over just how to promote this odd little series. Maybe the unique charm, heart and volcanic snark aren't coming through. I dunno. Fact is, I have no power over network promotion. I can't force Fox to air Wonderfalls on Monday nights. I don't have a Nielsen box or know anyone who does." Minear does have a relationship with genre fans worldwide thanks to the Internet, and he's hopeful that fans who supported his previous genre shows, including The X-Files, Angel and Firefly, will help get the word out about Wonderfalls. "I know that every one of you is connected to many others that I can't reach," Minear continued in his letter. The next new episode of WONDERFALLS airs on Friday, March 19. Fox will also repeat the show's acclaimed pilot episode on Thursday, March 18, following TRU CALLING.

PETER PAN: Universal Home Video announced its fantasy film PETER PAN will come to home video on May 4. The DVD will be priced at $26.98. Instead of offering such traditional bonus features as a commentary track, the PETER PAN disc will feature 11 featurettes spread out over 5 different "fantasy worlds".

CSI: NEW YORK: A few details have been published about the cast of characters we'll see in the new spinoff series CSI: NEW YORK. The chief who runs the NYC CSI division is a man named Calucci. Calucci's scenes in the episode paint the character as more physical than CSI's Gil Grissom or CSI: MIAMI's Horatio Caine. One scene mentioned has Calucci chasing after a suspect on the rooftops of the Big Apple. Calucci's right-hand woman is Stella Bonasera, described as being a scientific whiz that loves to use all the tools of her profession to close cases. Rounding out the team are the supporting characters of Detective Don Flack and medical examiner Dr. Sheldon Hawkes. CSI Files has a description of the NYC team's medical examiner offices and other character traits. CSI director/producer Danny Cannon has been promoted to executive producer on all three CSI shows. Cannon will direct the new show's pilot episode.

SMALLVILLE: The stars of SMALLVILLE is talking about the third-season finale, which promises to shake the show up considerably. Tom Welling said, "There's some big some suprises, especially in the season finale. They let me in on a few of the ideas and there's a few people leaving the show and there's a few people coming back and there's some people whose characters disappear." Sam Jones III, who plays Pete Ross indicated, "Not everybody's coming back to Smallville next year." Annette O'Toole, who plays Martha Kent, said there will be cliffhangers, with an emphasis on the plural. "I think every single charcter is somehow in grave peril, which is just the way you want it, isn't it?" she said.

THE GREEN HORNET: The Hollywood Reporter says that writer/director Kevin Smith has met with Jake Gyllenhaal for the role of The Green Hornet. Kevin Smith is zeroing in on an actor to jump into the "Green Hornet" suit. Prepping for the March 26 release of Miramax Films' "Jersey Girl," starring Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler -- Smith has met with Jake Gyllenhaal about taking the title role in the Miramax project. Other names may still be in the mix, but sources said Gyllenhaal appears to fit Smith's current conception of the character.

FRANKENSTEIN: The USA Network has hired Marcus Nispel to direct a remake of FRANKENSTEIN. The TV movie will update Mary Shelley's classic SF tale with modern science and genetic engineering. "Humans playing God these days has everything to do with [the story]," Nispel said in an interview. "I think that's a big moral question and links that back to the age-old tale of Frankenstein, which is all about 'Who am I? Where am I from? Where am I going?'" The script, written by thriller author Dean Koontz, hooked Nispel because it reversed the creator and the monster. "The monster discovers a soul, while the creator turns more and more into the monster," Nispel said. "And this whole idea of a disciple becoming the master and the master becoming disciple was always interesting to me. I'm always interested in coming-of-age stories or rites-of-passage stories, baptism under fire." Shooting for the project begins in May in Toronto. Casting has begun for the movie that will air in the fall.

NANNY MC PHEE: Kelly Macdonald has joined the cast of Working Title's NANNY MC PHEE, based on Christianna Brand's out-of-print books in the Nurse Matilda series. The film tells the story of a magical nanny (Emma Thompson) who uses her powers to teach seven naughty kids their lessons. Macdonald will play the maid of the house, who is very close to the children. With the success of the Harry Potter movies, more children's fantasies are being produced. Macdonald said that she feels McPhee has an older sensibility. "It's old school," she said. "It could be set in any time. It's a bit of Mary Poppins, and it's really unusual. I've never read anything like it." Filming begins in April, with Kirk Jones directing from Emma Thompson's script and release sometime in 2005.

WIZARD OF OZ: Variety reports that the Muppets are moving to Oz. ABC is getting ready for a Muppet version of THE WIZARD OF OZ with producers Jim Henson Productions and Fox TV Studios. With Disney's deal to take control of the Muppets brand and characters, this may be the first project since the changeover. Debra Frank and Steven Hayes are writing a script, which will feature familiar Muppet characters retelling the classic Wizard of Oz story. It's possible the movie will include a human character as well, most likely Dorothy, insiders told Variety. The movie will be based on the original L. Frank Baum novel The Wizard of Oz and not on the classic 1939 MGM musical.

HELLBOY: Sony Pictures and Best Buy have partnered to give away free preview DVDs of the soon-to-be-released HELLBOY. The free DVD contains film highlights and behind-the-scenes footage of the supernatural action adventure. The promotional DVD, which carries the Best Buy logo, is packaged in the same type of DVD box as full-length feature films. It contains 10 minutes of "Hellboy" footage, plus additional material. The DVDs have been available at checkout counters in Best Buy stores nationwide since March 8 and, according to Best Buy, are being snapped up by customers.

War of the Worlds WAR OF THE WORLDS: According to Variety, Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise will bring THE WAR OF THE WORLDS to the big screen, with Cruise expected to star. David Koepp (Secret Window) will rewrite a Josh Friedman first-draft script based on the classic H.G. Wells alien-invasion novel. Depending on how quickly a script is approved, the sci-fi epic could start filming in late 2005. Cruise and his C/W Productions partner Paula Wagner set up the film at Paramount in May 2002. Now that Spielberg is involved, DreamWorks will come aboard as a partner.

SPIDER-MAN 2: Computer graphics people -- listen up! Forbes magazine reports that the SPIDER-MAN 2 production used a new graphics chip for the special effects. The new graphics chips allowing artists to see instantly what the shot will look like post-rendering. Sony's ImageWorks arm started testing Nvidia's last top-flight chips in February for some of its 300 digital artists, who were working on the SPIDER-MAN sequel and other movies heavy with special effects. In the new SPIDER-MAN film, ImageWorks artists used the chips to draw more realistic skin on the actors' digital stand-ins. "It's about giving each artist the power to work more efficiently, perhaps to work faster, although, more likely, to work better," says George Joblove, senior vice president of technology at ImageWorks.

BLADE: TRINITY: New Line has changed the release date of David Goyer's upcoming BLADE: TRINITY to Dec. 10 from Aug. 13.

EPISODE III: Industrial Light & Magic reported reaching a milestone this week in the post-production for STAR WARS: EPISODE III with the completion of 105 visual-effects shots. The official Star Wars Web site reported that there are 1,895 to go in the 55 weeks left before the film's release in 2005. Director George Lucas is working with editor Roger Barton to cut out any extraneous material, a process Lucas describes as "hell and brimstone time. We have to take a real hard look at what it takes to tell the story, and what else we still need."

STARHYKE: A number of people have written for more information about Claudia's new show, STARHYKE. Managing Director Andrew Diamond responded by sending along the Press Release announcing the project and I have placed it on a Starhyke page for everyone to read. Thanks so much Andrew.

TOUCHING EVIL: According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two-hour premiere of USA's crime drama "Touching Evil" drew 3.3 million total viewers last Friday. While "Evil" led all key demographics among basic cable networks at 10 p.m. -- during its second hour -- its first half was beaten by the TNT premiere of theatrical "Men in Black." "Evil" did, however, build slightly on its 8 p.m. lead-in, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," which attracted 3.1 million. "Evil" lured 1.4 million viewers 18-49. Stacked against such other USA series premieres as "The Dead Zone" (6.4 million), "Peacemakers" (5.2 million) and "Monk" (4.8 million), "Evil" fell far short. However, "Evil's" predecessors benefited by launching during the less competitive summer season. Produced by Cheyenne Enterprises, "Evil" stars Jeffrey Donovan as an uninhibited detective working with an elite FBI crime-fighting unit.

SPIDER-MAN 2: Folks are out promoting the film already. Tobey Maguire is in Japan this week where approximately 12 minutes of the film were screened before several hundred journalists and industry guests at a Tokyo hotel. "I'm very excited about it and I hope you guys enjoy it," Maguire said in a clip shown on Access Hollywood on Monday night. Wizard World Los Angeles has added a panel devoted to the film on Sunday, following The Punisher movie. Marvel Studios' Avi Arad will be a guest. Kirsten Dunst, who returns as Mary Jane, will appear on ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday and Jay Leno on Thursday.

CELESTINE PROPHECY: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to star with Sarah Wayne Callies and Matthew Settle in the big-screen adaptation of James Redfield's best-selling New Age novel THE CELESTINE PROPHECY. In CELESTINE, Kretschmann will play Will, an outdoorsman and guide who also is a mystic. The film follows a spiritual search in a Peruvian rain forest for a long-lost manuscript containing insights into the nature of human existence. Also joining CELESTINE are Hector Elizondo, Jurgen Prochnow and Joaquim de Almeida.

ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13: The Hollywood Reporter indicates that actors Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects) and Brian Dennehy (First Blood) have joined the cast for Focus Features' remake of AASAULT ON PRECINCT 13. The cast includes Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburne, Maria Bello, John Leguizamo, and Drea de Matteo. PRECINCT 13 is set in "a police precinct building that is about to be shut down. On New Year's Eve, a mobster (Fishburne) is temporarily incarcerated at Precinct 13, the soon-to-close police station. As a rogue gang tries to free him, a cop (Hawke) must command a crew of policemen and prisoners to defend the station."

CASANOVA: Heath Ledger has signed on to topline the Walt Disney Co. period tale, with shooting set to start in August in Venice, Italy. The casting continues Ledger's busy work slate for 2004. Later this month, he's due to step in front of the cameras on "Lords of Dogtown" for Columbia Pictures and helmer Catherine Hardwicke. He'll then follow that up with a lead role opposite Jake Gyllenhaal as a pair of love-crossed cowboys in Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain" for Focus Features. He then segues to Hallstrom's "Casanova," a romantic comedy about the legendary Casanova and his pursuit of the one woman in Venice who doesn't fall prey to his charm.

Sunday, March 14:
WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Columbia Pictures thriller, SECRET WINDOW, starring Johnny Depp and John Turturro, opened to $7.1 million on Friday from 3,018 theaters. The film is the first to come close to taking over the top spot from Mel Gibson's THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, which was first again with $7.8 million from 3,221 theaters. The film has now collected an amazing $240.3 million in 17 days and has moved up to #34 on the all-time domestic blockbuster list. Warner Bros.' STARSKY & HUTCH took the third spot for the day with $5.4 million to push its total to $40.8 million, and Touchstone's HIDALGO earned $3.3 million for fourth and a total of $32.9 million. MGM's AGENT CODY BANKS 2: DESTINATION LONDON rounded out the top five with just $2 million from 2,973 million, while Warner's SPARTAN made only $633,500 from 832 theaters for the ninth spot.

STARGATE SG-1: Did you have a chance to see Part 1 of the season finale episode on Friday night? I love this series (could you tell?) and the cliffhanger they are setting up will keep us all on the edge until season eight begins.

E-MAIL NEWSLETTER: I got another issue of The Zocalo Today out via e-mail. If you want a copy and didn't get one, let me know and I'll put you on the mailing list. While it has only a small amount of the information captured here at the website, it is easier to read on the train!

Babylon 5 conventions are still among some of my fondest memories and while B5 conventions aren't held much any longer, there are still a few having Babylon 5 cast members as guests. Check out Planet Comicon in Kansas City this month. Jerry, Andrea and Catlin. Cool.

Saturday, March 13:
SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS: JOAN OF ARCADIA fans will be happy to see star Amber Tamblyn in the lead for SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS, a coming-of-age fantasy film based on the best-selling novel. According to the Hollywood Reporter, writer/director Ken Kwapis will helm the project for Warner Brothers Pictures and Alcon Entertainment. Shooting is scheduled to begin in mid-May. Written by Delia Ephron from the novel by Ann Brashares, the film centers on four friends who vow to keep in touch over the summer by circulating a magical pair of second-hand jeans that fits each of them perfectly.

STEPHEN KING'S KINGDOM HOSPITAL: Ratings for Stephen King's KINGDOM HOSPITAL fell 35 percent this week from its premiere. According to Variety, KINGDOM HOSPITAL's second Wednesday-night episode saw a preliminary 3.7 rating in adults 18-49 and a total viewership of 8.5 million. That was down more than one-third off its key demographic audience and a staggering 40 percent off its total audience from the previous week. KINGDOM HOSPITAL's two-hour premiere scored a 5.5 rating in the demographic and 14.1 million viewers.

CENTURY CITY: CBS' new drama series CENTURY CITY is set in a high-end Los Angeles law firm in the year 2030. It premieres Tuesday at 10 p.m. followed by a second episode at 10 p.m. Saturday.

CostCo continues to be my favorite store for DVDs. I picked up the Season 6 DVD of STARGATE SG-1 for $39.95 there on Saturday.

Ranger Dave found JEREMIAH nearly $20 less than Amazon's price at DVDsoon.com. Dave used Brian's suggestion and went to www.dvdpricesearch.net and found STARGATE SG-1 Seasons 1,2,&3 for $32.88 each (including ) tax and free shipping). There is even a coupon for $4 off purchases over $100 from that company. Season 4 was listed at a bit over $40.

I understand from Ranger Judy that all CostCo stores don't have the prices mentioned here. Hope some of the other options given help out.

Ranger Brian sent along a terrific tip for purchasing any DVDs. Go to http://www.dvdpricesearch.net/. You can do a search on any title and it will find the lowest price for you. It includes mailing information as well. Thanks Brian!

Ranger Frank in Seattle indicates that again, CostCo is saving Babylon 5 fans money!
Costco stores have a limited time sale on the Babylon 5 DVD sets. I went into a Costco in the Seattle area today, and they have seasons 1, 2 and 3 for $59.99 each -- about $25 less than Amazon.com, and $40 less than list price, as I recall. Season 4 is $64.99. But the deal is that if you buy Season 4, you get $20 off any one of the other seasons.

Thanks Frank for passing along the info. Other folks should check out CostCo for Babylon 5 and other DVDs. They usually have very competitive prices.


B5 Season Four DVD


Collectible Six-Disc DVD Set Featuring All 22 Episodes
Fully-Loaded with New Bonus Materials
Remastered in Widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio
Available January 6 from Warner Home Video

Burbank, Calif., October 14, 2003 - The future begins - or ends - here and now. Here is the huge space station Babylon 5. Now is the fateful year 2261. Commander John Sheridan has already declared the station free, breaking the ties between it and Earth Alliance. It was perhaps only a matter of time before he would have to fight to remain free. That time has come on January 6, 2003 with the complete 22-episode fourth season adventure of the acclaimed Babylon 5 sci-fi series from Warner Home Video (WHV). Presented on a must-have six-disc collector's set, Babylon 5: The Complete Fourth Season is priced to own at $99.98 SRP. Orders are due December 9.

Packed with out-of-this-world DVD bonus materials including a featurette about the series composer and the making of the series' music, an original music suite composed exclusively for the DVD release, in-depth audio commentaries from cast members and the series creator, personnel files and a gag reel.

"The Babylon 5 series has consistently been one of Warner Home Video's most in-demand DVD collections, proving the loyalty and strong fan base for this acclaimed sci-fi series," said Jeff Baker, Vice President, Non-Theatrical Franchise Marketing. "The TV to DVD trend has been very strong in the marketplace and WHV plans to continue releasing fan-favorite series throughout the year."

Babylon 5 has won two Emmy Awards for Groundbreaking Visual Effects and Makeup as well as the 1998 Science Fiction Writers of America Ray Bradbury Award. It also earned the 1999 Saturn Award for Best Genre Cable/Syndicated Series from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. Currently, Babylon 5 continues to be seen by legions of fans with episodes syndicated on the Sci-Fi Channel.

I have put together a listing of the episodes and pictures from each episode of Season 4 with a synopsis from the Lurker's Guide. Enjoy.

If you have found bargain prices out there on this set, let us know. If you have had problems with the set, here is an address to use to report them: Send any complaints/issues directly to Sherri Bogard at sherri.bogard@warnerbros.com. She handles all DVD problems with "Babylon 5".


Over at TV Shows on DVD, you'll find a notice that Season 5 of Babylon 5 will be available on April 13. Nothing official from the WB yet. Here is the information available so far:

From the beginning, both were running out of time. The space station that was the last, best hope for peace was sooner or later certain to be eclipsed by new political coalitions and technical advances. And John Sheridan, who guided the massive freeport through its most tumultuous days, knew that his own fate had been inalterably prophesied.

Now both storylines converge in a 22-episode final season (with dazzling Exclusive DVD Extras!) whose events also include Sheridan's attempts to wage peace for the Interstellar Alliance, the tragic fate of the telepaths and the ultimate fireball destruction of the outmoded station after it is declared to be a spaceway navigational hazard. You're cleared for final approach...to Babylon 5.

With all the speculation about what JMS is currently working on, I thought it might be fun to get a look at what everyone here would like to see -- on the Babylon 5 front. (This is pure speculation and has nothing to do with what JMS might have in the works.) I find it fascinating to see which Babylon 5 universe people enjoy the most. Is it the early Babylon 5? Crusade? Technomages? G'Kar and Lyta's trip into the galaxy? I think Galen's journal would make fascinating reading. With a story as rich as Babylon 5, there are tons of story lines that could be possible jumping off points.

Send in your comments and ideas to sgbruckner@aol.com. I post them on the Discussion Page for everyone to share. See what has come in so far. If you see an old topic you want to respond to, go right ahead. We enjoy hearing from you.

CLAUDIA CHRISTIAN: Claudia has landed the lead in a play called WHAT THE NIGHT IS FOR by Michael Weller. At the Laguna Playhouse from 3 April 2004 - 2 May 2004 there will be previews 30 March – 2 April. The play charts the night when two former lovers - both married - meet again for dinner in a hotel bedroom. It's truthful, powerful, and funny, and explores territory many of us have had to face - or chosen to ignore. Reservations can be made on-line by visiting the Laguna Playhouse website and clicking on tickets or calling them at 1-800-946-5556. Thanks Ranger Jim for the information.
Ranger Michael reports that Claudia Christian announced at the London Film and Comic Con she is in a new sci fi film. She got the lead role in Starhyke. For more information, go to www.starhyke.com . Not a lot of information there yet, but more news will be posted soon.

ANDREA THOMPSON: Andrea Thompson was in the new episode ''What If'' on JAG which aired Friday, March 12. She played Admiral Alison Krennick. She played Cmdr. Alison Krennick during JAG's first season. JAG is now in its ninth season, so it was a nice touch for longtime viewers of the military drama show. Thanks Ranger Rob for the sighting data.

STEPHEN AUSTIN: Our favorite Pak'Ma'Ra Ambassador has sent in an update.
"Everything is progressing well towards the production of our first episode of BUENA PARK AFTER DARK. I've been brought on as the Associate Producer of this weekly satirical talk show (think Fernwood Tonight meets Larry Sanders) starring L..A. radio icon and legend (just ask him) Frazer Smith. We're looking to premier in April on the Pax-owned station, KDOC-TV here in the Orange-Los Angeles County Area.
Post production is finally finished on REPTILE RANGERS. This is a film I worked on with J.G. Hertzler, Robert O'Reilly and Aron Eisenberg this past summer." Stephen will keep us posted as to when and where you will be able to see it.

2BeContinued Guests Ranger Brian had a blast with Rick, Jason and Jeffrey at the 2BeContinued Convention last week in Indiana. He sent along a picture for everyone to enjoy. Thanks Brian.

If you would like to share your convention experience with your other Zocalo readers, send along a convention report. I will gladly post it for all to read. Got pictures? I'll post those as well.


Do you have extra copies of B5, Amazing Spiderman, Midnight Nation or Rising Stars comics you'd like to trade? How about those extra trading cards or B5 magazines? There are a lot of fans looking for these items -- and the Trading Post can help you buy or sell them. To see what's available, just use this link to the Trading Post. To have items included in The Trading Post, send a note to The Zocalo. Please put Trading Post in the subject line.


If you are looking for someone to talk about Babylon 5 and Crusade with, the Pen Pal section is for you! Check it out! Drop a note to someone who is feeling B5 withdrawal -- BIG TIME!

People thought a Pen Pal page was a good idea. If you would like to meet people who you could chat with or share your opinions of the show with, send along your e-mail or snail-mail address The Zocalo. It will be incorporated on the new Pen Page Page.


Here's a recent note from JMS on the subject:

Just an FYI to those who've been using the Ventura Blvd. mail drop for fan mail to actors....

As mentioned before, we're phasing out the forwarding of fan mail because we a) don't have the resources, complicated by b) the actors have scattered to the four winds, and it makes it very difficult to get everything to everybody in a timely fashion.

So, having provided prior notice...fan mail to actors coming to the Ventura Blvd. mail drop will be sent back. Mail to actors should be sent via their official fan clubs. I will still be taking mail there, since it's my mailbox, but that's it.

Just so's y'all know and save a few bucks on postage and returns.
