DragonCon report #2: Babylon 5 and Firefly

Wonder Woman at DragonCon
[No, I will not be doing a 9-11 article this year. Everything I could say in the matter was covered last year.]

Believe it or not, I didn't get into a lot of panels at DragonCon because they were standing room only, and not even that. The Lord of the Rings panel was crowded out, Torchwood panels were crowded out, even guests Adam West and Burt Ward (Batman and Robin from the 60s) had so many fans that the place was crowded out.

However, as John Ringo has said, what happens at DragonCon, stays on YouTube.

So, who needs to go when stuff is being filmed?

Answer: Me. Much of what I did go into didn't even get put online.

So, one panel, which I didn't get into, is a Firefly panel.  For those of you who don't know Firefly, it is a sci-fi western of Joss Whedon's from about ten years or so ago.  This panel had Sean Maher, Jewel Staite, and an appearance from Adam Baldwin -- his first appearance in years, since he was busy working on a show called Chuck.

Below the break, Babylon 5 stars Mira Furlan and Bruce Boxleitner (aka: Tron), discuss their work on the show.

For the record, the host had mentioned that this was more exciting than having the Obama's, because they were the President and First Lady of the United States, but Boxleitner and Furlan were President and First Lady of the Galaxy.

Yup, it continues.

A discussion of working with Peter Jurasik and Andreas Katsulas.

"What was your most momentous scene?"

Sleeping together, and character reveals.
