Game of Thrones has a lot less SFX than B5 would need. But GoT has much higher location costs to deal with.

Game of Thrones is a bit of an aberration as it has strong interpersonal relationships and amazing dialogue for genre programming. B5 is plot top heavy and would need serious rework in order to capture the fanbase and acclaim of say nu BSG which was never even really a big hit.
