JMS AT RASTB5M:
Season 2 hits the stores on this coming Tuesday, and we're almost
finished with the S3 dvds. We're also in discussions about releasing Crusade.
Just finished the commentaries and interviews for the B5 Year 3 DVD

There's talk about a special musical sequence for the season 3 DVD,
with Chris re-scoring 2-3 episodes end to end with non-stop music, future segments on "The
Future According to Babylon 5" with NASA and JPL guys. I'd like to see the final bonus

Point being...they're putting a LOT of energy and work into this to make each set better than
