Jeff Akin and Brent Allen openly and honestly reflect on their own experience while watching the science fiction series Babylon 5 for the first time. I’ve been saying for years that Babylon 5 is the best TV series ever written, for a whole host of reasons. And by extension, this podcast by Jeff and Brent is the best Sci Fi oriented podcast I have ever seen. So why is that? Well two reasons. Jeff and Brent’s own conversation has evolved in just one and a half seasons. They may not even be aware of how they have changed - as individuals and together as people engaged in a shared experience. But that is what turns good science fiction into great science fiction. We, the viewers, are changed in a very fundamental way after experiencing it. We are forced to do a deep dive into explorations of human behavior whether it be how we deal with our fears - of the unknown, of those who are different from us - or how we behave in the face of human suffering - I encourage anyone that likes science fiction to tune in as Jeff and Brent discover what it means. To be part of the human race in times such as this. The second reason is that the podcast production is truly top notch. Well done!
