I don't hate Byron. I don't love him, but he wasn't supposed to be lovable. He was a well-meaning individual whose character flaws led to his downfall. He made stupid mistake after stupid mistake,...

Re: EpDis: Whatever Happened To Mr Garibaldi?

I voted excellent. This is one of my very favorite episodes. I especially loved the ending; Bruce's performance and Chris Franke's score makes me want to cry.

Re: EpDis: Severed Dreams

Excellent, without a doubt. Its emotional whallop and its importance to the arc make it one of the best, if not the best. Z'Ha'Dum is the only one I can think of off-hand that can match it.

I hadn't realized the original script was already available. Obviously, my guess was wrong. (I suppose it's possible that at this point the Vorlons were beings of light, but not yet First Ones.)
