Clone Wars improved so much as it went. Hard and fast rules:

The rest is fairly good. It...

Re: New To Babylon 5

Genuinely cool to hear new people are still finding B5 and even like it enough to attend ticketed events. HBO MAX and the remaster has likely done wonders for expanding the fanbase.

Yeah. I enjoyed Farscape. It had a zany aspect to it that really appealed. The puppets were a marvel to behold and overall it remained entertaining throughout.

I also love the body swap episode.
