Re: EpDis: No Surrender, No Retreat

Well, this episode is just great, start to finish. It starts out pretty tense right from the first scenes with the military-style drums and the shots of people hurrying around with a purpose. It never really lets up after that. The story is excellent. There's an impressive space battle (and as always in B5, it's set against the background of a shiny nebula), but it's a very complicated space battle. It's all about the respective captains (and the people under them) having to make up their minds about what is morally right. Excellent.

I like seeing young lieutenant Corwin again, holding the fort.

I also like seeing Vir again, with his long, high status hair! Poor guy, clearly still have nightmares about his recent assassination experience.

The scenes with G'Kar and Londo are excellent as always.

The Garibaldi plot thickens! He plans not to return!

There's nothing here for me to criticize. It's just excellent. I may have more to say about that when I'm not tired, but "excellent" describes it pretty well. I think the Earth conflict is my favorite part of the Babylon 5 story, so I like everything to do with that.
