Depth wasn't what JMS was going for in this one, I think.
It's not a JMS episode .. which probably explains why we all like it less than any random other given episode

I agree .. *everyone* dying was a bit too .. over-the-top predictable drama. Yes, it's war, yes, lots of people die .. but .. everyone really? Except for the general .. who would be in the safest position anyways I suppose.

As for the complete non-relevance of the war .. reminds me a bit of the times there have been US military strikes on the news outside of reported conflicts that just seemed so .. random. Though this was a bit .. big for random, yes.

And I guess I'm the only one for whom the Franklin's dad thingy just got a bit too .. clichee in the end. Oh well
