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

It never occurred to me that Sheridan would think that spying was unethical, really. Given his military and political background, I'd think he'd consider it just something that everybody did,...

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

Once the possibility of the spin-off came around, that's certainly possible.

The way I see it, the unevenness of season 5 was due to the need to build up momentum again since there was so little...

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

Wait a minute - what *are* you talking about?? I talked down to you? Why didn't I notice it? Please don't read anything into what I say other than what I actually say, okay? I'm really very...

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

Not exactly sure where all that came from but it couldn't have been in response to what I posted. You perceive faults. I don't. But I never - ever - said anything about there being a problem with...

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

All I can say is that there were only a certain number of episodes and a certain number of minutes per episode. The show was a slice of history and history is seldom neat and tidy. ;)

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

So the rogues *said* they had the ambassador's secrets. Who's gonna prove that and how? ;) Get yet another telepath to go in and get those secrets to prove it? Which race's telepath would do...

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

In addition to what JoeD80 has said, the telepaths did commit crimes on the station but they first committed crimes in Earth territory by going rogue. By ISA rules, that would make it an Earth...

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

I *loved* that Lochley didn't allow the prejudices of the previous command to color her relations with Bester! It's exactly what she should have done, IMO. As she said, he hadn't done anything to...

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

Given how early it was in the season, JMS may have still been trending toward the idea of having the Alliance becoming - or verging on - tyranical. It's clear throughout the season that this is on...

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

Because actual habitable planets belong to somebody. And they're valuable real estate. One doesn't simply give them away to a small splinter group.

As for our characters making 'grey' decisions...

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

To an extent, you're absolutely right. But part of the point of JMS posting as much as he did was to tear the veil away so that viewers would understand more about how TV is really made.

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

The notes were on 3x5 inch cards because that's a visual way that JMS would plot out story beats and episodes. ...
