Re: Babylon 5 article

Thanks!



Thanks! And who knows, it's entirely possible that JMS will fold part of the Crusade storyline into this new series? I think this new B5 will be very different to the original.

Re: What an alternate TL where there was a space sci fi show on TV from 2010-14 look

I wouldn't say Picard season 2 is a slow burn. It starts off really fast-moving, but there's just not enough plot to fill 10 episodes, so they drag it out in the middle – in my opinion, anyway.
