Re: Watching Babylon 5 in 2015

I've never tried to watch just the arc episodes, but I do skip The Gathering fairly regularly. I skipped it this time, too. I'm not sure why. Maybe because I originally started B5 without the pilot, and didn't see it until much later?

I can also never decide if I should recommend new people begin with the pilot, or just go straight to the first episode and go back to the pilot at some later point. The pilot certainly has its value, but it might just be confusing because there are so many changes between it and the first episode. It's also older and thus looks older ... You can sort of summarize the plot in a few sentences to get people ready for the first season. On the other hand, you could also just watch it.

I don't know!

I like In The Beginning a lot, but I don't watch the other movies nearly as often.
