Re: EpDis: Severed Dreams

I really enjoy the fullscreen versions from Vudu, but unfortunately Severed Dreams is the same widescreen version that's on the DVD.

Re: Audio levels

Babylon 5 is done in Surround Sound so that is possibly related. I don't have a good speaker setup to test this theory. The DVDs do seem awfully quiet to me as well.

Re: Is it time to give season 5 another chance?

Deathwalker wasn't part of any of those governments. The telepaths are Earth citizens.


Just a random side-note: Peter David & Bill Mumy wrote one fifth season script, but it was not produced.
