Re: EpDis: In The Beginning

I'm not sure I agree. I don't think making it longer would have helped. As I stated above, I've always thought there was already a lot of dialogue for what it was. Its pacing seemed very slow at times. However, I think it DID very well bring out all of the emotion for humanities fight for survival. The last 15-20min is very powerful. The series TALKED about those events but actually seeing them was far more impactful. I think to add too much more to the time would have really taken away from this.

As it was, it was clearly meant for those who had seen the series. Sure, first time viewers could watch it and get enjoyment out of it, but not all the attachment and emotion as someone who watched 4 years of B5.
