I didn't catch the credit, but if so, yeah, that'd be my first
as Joe.

Yeah, that's a coincidence, they either didn't know about that
prior stint, or it just didn't occur to them.

I find I'm alternately pleased and chagrined by the attention.
When I saw that part of it, I kind of cringed, but what they tell me is
that this is the sort of thing that's useful to promoting the show in
general. The firsts represented by B5 mainly come from the
storytelling aspects of it, and that it's really one vision in an
intense sort of way not really done much before. So that's something
they can pin their promotion on. It comes out of their real respect
for what we've done here.

It's very weird to look around one day and discover, by doing
what you've been doing in fair anonymity for as long as you can
remember, that suddenly you're a celebrity, even a minor-league one.
You're talking to a guy here who couldn't get a date in high school,
for cryin' out loud....

"It looks as if TNT will not give B5 anymore respect than the
independent TV stations did as to when they will air it. They have to
be bettter than WSKB though. This torked me off too."

This only happened due to the game. There won't be games coming
on before the episodes themselves, so we'll be on time.

And believe me, they've *already* given this show more respect
than the syndicated stations did.

> You too?

"betcha the girls that used to know you are more chagrined than the
ones that used to know me..."

Keed, take my word for it, having gone to my 20th reunion a bit
ago, none of them even remembered me to *be* chagrined....

Oddly, the newspapers had it right, TV Guide didn't.

But they're going to be airing the Guide sandwiched in between
the two TV movies airing next Sunday, so we're golden.

(ItB got a great review in TV Guide...called it "stunning" and
"riveting.")

"I suppose now would not be the time to bring up the old one about the
starlet who was so new to Hollywood she slept with the writer..."

But that was only because she heard that in Hollywood,
*everyone* screws the writer.

"Regarding the one shot of Londo with hair down to his forehead... is
that from ITB? (if so, he sure lost a LOT of hair between ITB and The
Gathering."

Yeah, well, so did I....

"Also, the scenes of what looks likes a riot on the station... is that
from a season 5 episode? I don't recall those scenes in season 4."

They're from Thirdspace.

I have a directTV satellite dish, and I have to tell you I would
*never* go back to cable. The quality is substantially better, you
have far more options, it never goes out, the per-month charges are
about the same, for more services, and the initial cost of the setup
has dropped dramatically in the last few months to just a couple
hundred bucks for a basic system.

And in an NC-17 movie everybody gets the girl and one guy gets
the guy and everybody feels bad about it later while they sit around in
a French cafe reading Kirkegaard....
