Re: Babylon 5 on Blu-Ray?

They do, in places, look grainy as hell, and with a lot of scratches and dust. I think a good new telecine could help, but there probably would need to be some fairly substantial cleaning up done,...

Re: Mindwalker and Evolution

I believe that's true, and IIRC this is also made pretty clear in "To Dream in the City of Sorrows".

Re: B5:TLT -- just the news. And we mean that.

Well, they have this thing called "mail" now, where they can send you things. And it then gets delivered at your door, even all the way to Brabant. ;)

Re: B5:TLT - Show Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I'm not sure that's a conclusion you could really draw from the limited amount of information we get about the Hand in LotR. Though, to be honest, it's been a while since I watched it.
