Re: JMS approved Chronological viewing order

Watched Thirdspace again recently (first time in ages, I think it still holds up) and one of the main plot drivers in the first half is the blockade of B5 by Earth and the need of the crew to try and...

Re: EpDis: Deathwalker

That's a good point about the Vorlons being wary of telepaths. Assuming that it's not a plot point that went away after the story changed direction with Michael O'Hare's departure, I can think of two...

Re: JMS has TWO new B5 related things in the works

I guess, for the show to have any popularity with future generations, a reboot will be necessary at some point, or the show will just be forgotten. But one of the reasons that nu-BSG was a success...

Right, yes of course. I'd completely forgotten that the reboot was intended to be a movie not a series (which in hindsight makes more sense as JMS only had the movie rights). And yes, I do remember...

Re: JMS has TWO new B5 related things in the works

I agree Looney, JMS was being cautious, but to be fair it did have a director attached to it, a filming schedule and production offices set up in the UK. So there was a level of excitement to it...

Re: New vote for worst episode ever: Between the Darkness and the Light

Re: New vote for worst episode ever: Between the Darkness and the Light

I've never really understood why Infection is so disliked, even by JMS. It's nothing special by any means, but I didn't find it embarrassing. Season 1 could get very talky at times, so it was nice to...

Okay, well that's a shame. May I ask what it is related to then?
