Out of the Blue

Somebody in the forums joked about this yesterday, but it may indeed be true that the secret ingredient in my coffee has been coffee grinder, as when I glued the broken pieces of our broken grinder back together, there was a small portion of plastic missing, and the most logical conclusion is that it was ground up and mixed with the coffee along the way. Here's hoping the filter caught most of it. Undeterred by this revelation, I managed to get the grinder fixed, and it no longer requires something pressing down on it to get it to work, so the break must have been the cause of that. Oddly, the hardest part of the job was cleaning it all up, as the oil in the grounds created a sort of coffee cement in various areas that required an amazing amount of work to clean out.

Zathras also passed away from the show... Very depressing. I wish they would bring this show back in some form as well as re-release it in Bluray :/.

Some fans sent JMS an email asking about that a year or two ago. He basically said that there was a lot of difficulty transferring it to a high definition format and that they would need to remaster a lot of stuff that is no longer possible due to the CG models and effects props being lost. His contract is also so shitty that any money made would go to them before he would ever see a penny (he was a big time victim of Hollywood Accounting).

I had no idea how successful Babylon 5 was BTW, apparently the franchise has grossed over 1 billion dollars for WB.

What's even worse is that WB pretended to have more interest in B5 stories, so JMS created the Forgotten Tales, and it sold very, very well. And WB was like "hahaha, yeah, no, we're actually not interested."

Fuckers.

As for Blu-Ray, that'll likely never happen. At most you'd get a transfer straight from the DVD, since like you said, most of the old CGI footage is gone. It'd be AMAZING if they ever did something with this like they're doing with Star Trek.

Unlike TNG season 1, I would happily fork over 80 bucks a season of a remastered and redone Bab 5, with modern day CGI. (though with the amount of CGI that show had, it'd likely cost far far more than 80 bucks a season...)

You know what's the worst part? B5 was actually recorded in a format very very close to 16:9.... so all they would need to do is remake all the CGI. I mean, it shouldn't be that hard if they go a route like say use steam's movie maker or something you know? Make some B5 models and just have them fly around in a game engine... should be real cheap.
