Here's a transcript of the relevant portion of the podcast.
Host number two at one point mumbles a bit, I can't follow that part.
Host number three is... well, I know what he is trying to say, but he is just incoherent.

It would be great to watch the show without the distracting visual gremlins in the CG and composites created by a wide-screen conversion. Also, is there any likelyhood of you releasing the original televised edit of Babylon 5's pilot episode, which is very different from the one widely available 1998 re-edit.

It's a very interesting taste profile.

Re: WB considering HD update

Lyta's Shadow, you realize there are multiple ways to interpret that image.

A. Maybe you feel hurt by my comment?
B. Maybe you enjoy seeing pain on Lyta's face?

Interesting stuff. I have no clue why he said, "Are there Babylon 5 fans?" after he said they get asked about Babylon 5. Weird. Glad I was unaware of this podcast until now. It would have taken up SOOOOOOOOOOO much of my time. I have a minor Warner Archive Collection of my own.

Re: WB considering HD update

Oddly enough I dreamt last night about there being movement on a HD version of B5!

Well, of course it's all rumours at the moment, but it does make a kind of sense thanks to the pandemic television production is shut down on a lot of things, so WB might be combing through their archives looking for multi-season shows they can put on their streaming channels in lieu of any new content.

Though just because someone at Warners is asking questions, doesn't mean it's got the green light. I guess they have to work out what they need to do first and budget for it. I'd imagine they'd factor in Blu-ray sales. Also if it helps raise the profile of the series, it might open the door to a reboot?

Fingers, toes and everything else crossed!

Oh okay. I am just glad I was able to cast them toward someone else rather than them being cast upon me. ....

You know the great part is when this new you broke becomes a reality you will always have a special place in my heart.... Sorry.

Re: WB considering HD update

YOU HAVE HIT ON A TOTALLY NEW FORM OF COMMUNICATION!!!!!

Patricia Tallman is going to be so proud.

I wish I spoke your language. That is hilarious though. Only communicating through Lyta reactions is such a fantastic idea. Hmmmmm.... which actor would I choose? Oh who am I kidding, I would use them all. I was trying to think whom would be the best choice and a hundred reactions from different actors all popped in my head so there is no way I could choose one.

To bring it back to the subject, the only thing that matters is that the reaction gifs are remastered in HD
