Re: The Babylon 5 Preservation Project

So I've pledged (after remembering I don't need the money right now for Kickstarter) and I was the 250th person to pledge. Just another $3000 needed!

I'll back that, once I actually have some money. A shame the larger pledges are all gone, but it looks like it will get funded, which would be good news.

Re: Game of Thrones, HBO series

I liked episode 4, although it did feel strangely lacking as a whole, like the separate elements were good, but they didn't quite fit together. Again, it might feel more cohesive on a second watch.
