Re: JMS' Viewing Order

Ah, I'd forgotten that Chrysalis was one of the ones where they were down to the wire.

And I keep forgetting that they would have invented the Shadow ship for Chrysalis and re-used it in Signs...

Re: JMS' Viewing Order

Short answer: yes. This happened quite a lot on B5 -- "Chrysalis" was filmed in the middle of Season 1, for instance.

(Actually, for some time now I've wondered if that was in part because JMS...

Re: What was the original 5-year plan?

For aliens, I think he abandoned N'Grath pretty quickly because he wasn't satisfied with the look. And he had to abandon the "Bureau 13" plotline (or more precisely fold it into others) because that...

JMS had all sorts of contingencies for disruptions in cast, etc., and used several of them -- but I'll bet he didn't have a plan for "the network exploded but you'll still get to do the last season...

Re: What was the original 5-year plan?

I'm also reasonably confident that JMS has said the Shadow War would have ended at about the same time in S4 regardless -- he wanted it to be a shockingly abrupt conclusion.

Re: Nineteen Years Ago Today - Sleeping in Light

Yes, it's still my favorite end to a series, as well. Even shows that I think are better than B5, that I love more, haven't nailed a finale like "Sleeping in Light."

I, too, am interested in the ordering of Season 1 -- placing "Signs and Portents" so late surprises the heck out of me.
