Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

I voted excellent. This is one of my very favorite episodes. I especially loved the ending; Bruce's performance and Chris Franke's score makes me want to cry.

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

Love this bunch of eps, but I have one quibble- isn't it kind of surprising that G'Kar risks life and limb to go on a needle-in-a-haystack search for Garibaldi? This is the kind of thing one would do for a loved one or something, but I never fealt that G'Kar and Garibaldi were that close.

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

It probably has a lot to do with G'Kar's idea of helping others beyond his own species. Doesn't he tell Marcus that he's going after Garibaldi because he's never had a non-Narn friend before? He's setting an example. Also, nobody else seems to care about Garibaldi, so G'Kar feels he should do something.

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

Yeah, I think G'Kar knew that the others were too busy with the Alliance and the war to worry about going out to look for Garibaldi. Since G'Kar had recently pledged his services to the Alliance, he probably felt, as KoshFan suggested, that he was doing something to contribute.

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

On the other hand, I had gotten the impression ..... through G'Kar's prison sentence and G'Kar's loaning Garibaldi his copy of the Book of G'Quon ...... that the two of them *had* struck up a friendship.

They may not have been the kind the of long time, intimate confidantes that would prompt most people to risk their life on such a low probability chance.

However, they were simply friends. Their relationship was not based upon any mutual advantage that they gained from each other. It was just a basic, enjoy-each-other's-company friendship. It may have "only" been what many of us might think of as a "casual frindship", but, as G'Kar explicitly points out, it is the very first real friend that he had *ever* had who was not a Narn.

Given G'Kar's relatively recent revelations, I can see how that might resonate very deeply with G'Kar at this point.

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

Remember, too, how Garibaldi warned G'Kar off of transferring weapons using the station but called in a favor from a friend to help him out. No, they never hung out together but I think they definitely thought of each other as friends. And after that weapons help, G'Kar may have felt obligated to Garibaldi, too.

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

In the JMS section of the Lurker's Guide for this ep, he says:

Quote:
I like the rough edges, the hesitations, the stumbles. In editing 402 the other day, there's several takes to choose from in a particular scene, but I picked the one where the actor slightly stumbled over the line, because it was at the heat of the moment, and in that kind of situation, we all get flustered. It made it feel more real.
Does anyone know the line he is referring to? I've never noticed the "stumble" myself.

G'Kar gave Garibaldi his copy of the Book of G'Quan. That says it all. But what was Marcus doing there? Did Marcus and G'Kar even cross paths other than "A Late Delivary from Avalon?" As much as I enjoyed their banter, Marcus had no strong reason to be with G'Kar--this point became more awkward once G'Kar forced Marcus to leave.

Still, this episode is an A all the way. Look at Andreas's reaction to the light as the cell door closes. Phenomenal work.

This has got to be one of the most quotable episodes of the series, and nearly every starring actor has a chance to shine.

Another thing I love G'Kar's non-sequitor reply to Emperor Cartaiga.

Cartaiga: "And you? Have you anything to say?"
G'Kar: "Do you by chance happen to know where Mr. Garibaldi might be?"
Cartaiga: (Looks back at Londo)
Londo: (shrugs)
Cartaiga: WHO?!!!

Cut to Garibaldi being interrogated.

I have to wonder what JMS was thinking when he had G'Kar ask about Garibaldi in the face of the Emperor of the Centauri. I mean, it was obvious Cartaiga had never heard of him, and it is a testament to Narn resolve, but of all the weird ass things to say . . .

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

I assume the bar scene. Following Marcus's dramatic entrance and the punches that ensued, one of the bar's denizens taps the alarms. Listen to G'Kar as the claxons go off. He says something . . . indecipherable followed by, "Come on" to Marcus.
The pronounciation on that line before "Come on" is shakey. At best.
