Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

He doesn't have to be written the same way. On the face of it, an embittered, rogue Psi Cop trying to save his people sounds like an interesting character.

Re: Dune

The last part1/part 2 film I saw was 'It', and Chapter 1 worked because it stood perfectly well on its own – if they'd never made Chapter 2, it wouldn't really have changed how much of a success...

Re: EpDis: Chrysalis

I think I'm right in saying that scene of Clark being sworn in was shot on the 30th anniversary of the real event? Another of those Babylon 5 coincidences.

Yes, G'Kars eye sounds more likely, though even then it's hard to square the prophecy with what happened. How would saving G'Kar's eye spare Londo his fate? Maybe it means saving G'Kar, not just his...

Re: Any fans of The Expanse in here? (Books or TV Show)
