Re: It Was the Dawn of the Third Age of B5-Watching...

Ahhh, that explains it. I also had the niggling suspicion that Londo was mocking the person he was talking about, which he wouldn't do for a friend. (Much.) (Well, it depends.) (Okay, he'd totally do...

Re: It Was the Dawn of the Third Age of B5-Watching...

Well, folks, I've finally done it: I've now seen all of B5.

Yes, only just now. I watched Season 5 for the first (and heretofore only) time on VHS owned by friends, and due to some bad recording,...

It's also worth noting that while the Minbari were reclusive, I don't think we know that they were uniformly xenophobic. Everything we know about them is filtered through the war, and that's not...

Re: Babylon 5: What Should One Watch?- PART 2

"Signs and Portents" is a marvelous ep -- I think I've seen it more than any other. But it really works best if there have been at least a couple episodes of "normal B5" (if there ever really was...

Re: Babylon 5: What Should One Watch?- PART 2

I'll pipe up for "Midnight." I think it does a truly excellent job of introducing the series. It's remarkable how much they managed to set up in that episode: the Narn/Centauri arc, Londo and G'Kar's...

The Ex was not as impressed with "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars" as I thought. Liked it as an episode but not as a season finale.
