Re: Legend of the Rangers: What Would Have Happened?

Agreed. I can't imagine The Hand as a legitimately more dangerous threat than the Shadows / Vorlons without jumping into Thirdspace tie-ins.

Re: Does any tv series / book saga / movie saga achieve B5's plot structure?

First off B5 wasn't stretched a full season so much as half of a season due to the possible cancellation after S4.

We would have had Intersections in Real Time as the cliffhanger with an early S5...

Re: Movie and seasons order

It would be a huge mistake to watch In The Beginning first. Yes it's pretty much a prequel / flashback... but it spoils seasons one through four, ffs.
