Re: EpDis: TKO

Recoil once wrote a really great post defending the A story of this episode while the rest of us were shitting all over it and I've since come around to his point of view.
Also I've since come to love fighting and sports movies and stories actually and I watch Rocky like very other month so I guess I'm biased now, but I like this episode.

The actor that played the alien that acted as coach in this episode comes back in season 3 as the Nightwatch creep that kidnaps Delenn and a Minbari captain in season 3.
"Most smart people cannot watch most TV, because it has generally been a condescending medium, explaining everything immediately, offering no ambiguities, and using dialogue that simplifies and mitigates against the idiosyncratic ways in which people in different worlds actually communicate. It eventually requires that characters from different places talk the same way as the viewer. This, of course, sucks." - David Simon
