Re: EpDis: Falling Toward Apotheosis

And we're back to epic again with this episode. You truly get the sense of a galactic emergency, of everyone under threat. "Good luck to all of us" says Londo, and that sums the situation up. Everyone has got to join together, work together, or die. Petty differences are put aside in the face of the planet killers. And in the middle of all this, Sheridan plots to assassinate one of the First Ones. I always thought it was a shame that Earth never became involved in this story line, though if the Vorlons had kept on going, Earth would be in the firing line soon enough. It feels like the whole B5 story has been building to this – all out war, monsters from the dawn of time unleashed, and great moments of sacrifice and tragedy. SF on TV has never been this epic, not before or since.
