Yes, this is going ahead. I've been quietly working with WB on this
for a while now, both for the AOL material and the wireless phone
component...editing down various parts into differenty-sized bites for
when you're standing around in line at the bank. So there's "make me
laugh" and "thrill me" segments (the elevator scene in "Convictions"
being one, and a big Narn/Shadow fight for the latter) of 3-4 minutes,
"Tell me a story" which is 12 minutes long on average, being an a- or
b-story pulled out on its own, and of course "show me an episode."

This combined approach will help to put B5 out there in front of a huge
audience of both regular viewers, computer folks, and people just
curious to sample the show in brief bites.
