Sheridan standing up to Kosh was indeed a thing of beauty. Lennier told him he was the only one capable of defying Kosh, and he was right. If there was anyone that could influence Kosh to listen to them and do something they asked, it was Sheridan.

He was, after all, trained to fight legends.

Sheridan just seriously kicks ass. Yes I know that every lead figure of every show kicks ass by definition, but IMO there are only 4 sci-fi leads and one supporting character that really convey a true ass-kicking quality:

1. Sheridan
2. Kirk
3. Sisko
4. Riker

I also think that, given a better show around her, Janeway could have done that.

One of the reasons why I'm a Sheridan fan is that he kicks ass. ;)

My favorite captain gets his ass kicked about as regularly as he kicks ass -- but he's still gorram cool.

I have an all new respect for this episode after listening to the voice-over commentary on the DVD. Having Bruce, Rick, Jerry and Ed do a good and proper MST3K of the episode made me laugh so hard I nearly passed out from oxygen depravation! The "4-minute scene with the jukebox" is forever blistered into my mind as a retake of Brando's "is that all you've got" bit from "On the Waterfront." Ye Gods, but I love this show and the actors that breathed life into it!

Is this not also the episode where (just as a side issue) Londo is manipulated in to a position where he is preapred to "Let the galaxy burn"? OR am I getting it mixed up?
FAB ep. Just saw it again the other day. Kosh did say not to blame himself (sheridan) for his death. Do you think he's carrying any guilt over that? Or is everyone (even the Vorlon) Expendable for the greater good? If sherdian was feeling a litle guilty pushing Kosk like that, then it must have been pretty weird when Kosh took up residence inside him

An episode of the highest quality. Severed Dreams is intense and in the large scale a tragic battle, but Interludes and Examinations hits me even harder. Sheridan right up in Kosh's face is one of the most intense scenes in the entire series, but during the dream / death sequence for Kosh I nearly cried. It was so beautifully shot.


Lets not downplay the personal tragedy for Londo or Dr. Franklin's stims thread blowing open at last either. Everything in the episode is just so powerful, but nothing more so than Kosh's death.


A tremendous sacrifice.
A touching moment.

The passing of a Legend.

If there was a mark higher than A I would give it to this episode.There are so many important things happening in it that make you watch it again and again.There are several very emotional moments.

-Kosh losing his temper
-Sheridan shouting and insulting the millons of years old Kosh
-the dark side of Dr.Franklin
-Londo crying for Adira
-Kosh's Death

This episode is a TV masterpiece!!!
