Jan

This is my first post as a Mod.

Thank you, thank you very much! I shall do my best not to go drunk with power. :guffaw: :beer: :dancing:
If I do go drunk with power, I'll be relying on you, Jan, to haul off and smack me one.

Yeah, yeah, I know, don't give away the homeworld.

And don't forget, The TentacuEmperor will smack you down with all 6 tentacles if you give away the homeworld. That will NOT be pleasant. ;)

I'd hate to be in a card game with you and Londo. :eek: Better have twelve cold pitchers of beer or ice water around.

One more obvious move.

About two years ago, I decided to introduce my older kids to B5, so we sat down and watched all the shows in subjective chronological order (Including putting "Day of the Dead" in its right location in S5), and I have to say it kind of moved me.

Truth be told, I didn't like "Sleeping in Light" at the time. It was too intimate for me, to quiet and close to be following the sturm und drang of the last third of S5, it felt like the show had just run out of steam. Watching it again didn't improve it for me any.

However, watching it after everything else - the show, the movies, Rangers, Crusade, Lost Tales, "Beginning", it picked up a lot of resonance for me, it really moved me. It took me nearly a decade to get what JMS was going for with that episode, but when I finally was able to connect with it, it moved me in ways no other part of the franchise did. It was beautiful, and poignient, and it made me ache for all the cool stuff we were prevented from seeing.

So, of course I vote for watching them in chronological order. <G>

And every time you do, you'll see something you hadn't noticed before.

Tsk...NOT watch "Sleeping in Light"?!? Heresy! ;)
