Babylon 5: The Lost Soundtrack
jokipper

With 2013 being the 20th anniversary of the broadcast of B5's pilot, "The Gathering", it's worth noting that it's also been at least 15 years since we've seen--and especially, heard--the original version of the pilot. There are so many things to like about B5, and Christopher Franke's soundtracks certainly top the list. B...

Two-hour film would be shot between seasons three and four.

Galactica movie going to DVD

Sci-Fi's Battlestar Galactica will likely get the movie treatment with a two-hour telefilm that will go directly to DVD. The movie would be separate from the existing storyline of the show and would be shot between season three and four.

The storyline would likely tie into a new Battlestar series, Caprica, that is on deck at Sci-Fi, according to geekmonthly.com. Caprica would take place decades before the events of Battlestar Galactica and would show the development of the Cylons.

Neither the new series nor the DVD movie has been given a green light by the network. Galactica experienced a viewer drain this season, but reviews and DVD sales have remained strong.

The site also reports that filming had been completed on the Babylon 5 direct-to-DVD movie, titled Babylon 5: The Lost Tales.

Studios revive cult TV shows for DVD viewers

Hollywood is known for turning popular, mainstream TV series into big-budget theatrical movies; think Charlie's Angels, The Dukes of Hazzard, and Miami Vice.

Now, studios are beginning to tap into quirkier, cult TV series for direct-to-video spinoffs.

Last year 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment scored big with Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin--The Untold Story, which has sold nearly 3.5 million DVDs since its September 2005 release.

Now comes Warner Home Video with plans for a direct-to-DVD Babylon 5 movie. Debuting in 1993, the sci-fi series drew 13.7 million viewers in the first of its five seasons and has enjoyed nine successful years in rerun syndication, while its TV-DVD releases have generated $44 million in consumer spending.

"This popular TV show, which has been off the air for a few years, continues to have a strong, loyal fan base that ...

Each show is presented with interactive elements, games, competitions and additional content to take advantage of the medium's unique capabilities.

About 14,000 episodes from 300 different series have been cleared to be part of the service, a process that has taken two years, Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution president Eric Frankel said. This represents about a third of the relevant catalog, and more ...

The Emmy-winning Babylon 5 brought many exciting innovations to science fiction television. Computer-generated effects, five-year story arcs, and elaborate mythology made this series stand apart from what came before and point the next generation of sci-fi/fantasy series in bold new directions. This show realized creator J. Michael Straczynski's vision of creating a five-season novel for television. Its stories proved that one person can make a difference, that the choices we make (right or wrong, good or bad) have far-reaching consequences, and that humanity is far greater and nobler than given credit for being.

Babylon 5 is a five-mile long space station located in neutral space. Built by the Earth Alliance in the 2250s, it's goal is to maintain peace among the various alien races by providing a sanctuary where grievances and negotiations can be worked out among duly appointed ambassadors. A council made up of representatives from the five major space-faring civilizations - the Earth Alliance, Mimbari Federation, Centarui Republic, Narn Regime, and Vorlon Empire - work with the League of Non-Aligned Worlds to keep interstellar relations under control. Aside from its diplomatic function, Babylon 5 also serves as a military post for Earth and a port of call for travellers, traders, businessmen, criminals, and Rangers.

A floating city home to a quarter of a million humans and aliens is bound to experience problems; Babylon 5 has problems in abundance. Its senior staff of Earth Alliance officers - along with the most prominent members of the diplomatic community - deal with personal problems, cultural differences, threats to station security, and interstellar crises on a regular basis. Old prejudices and unresolved issues leftover from the Earth-Mimbari War and the Centauri occupation of Narn lead to unexpected developments. Pro-Human groups and a corrupt government make the Earth of the future far from paradise. Telepaths seek refuge from the militant Psi Corps while the Mars colony desires support in its bid for independence. And then there is the growing presence of Shadows in regions close by and on the Outer Rim of known space. Fate has decreed that Babylon 5 be crucial to deciding the outcome of all of these conflicts.moreless
