Re: EpDis: The Exercise Of Vital Powers

I like this one. I actually never found it to be too overly dialogue-ey. This is slower than the last episode, but not necessarily less tense. There's a lot of creepy stuff going on. Something unpleasant is about to happen with the Shadow-implanted telepaths, but we don't yet know what it is. There's a LOT of creepiness with Edgars/Wade/Garibaldi.

Obviously I can't like Edgars as a person, but I really do like the character. He is perfect as the evil powerful businessman. He didn't have to care much about Clark's shenanigans until that point because none of that stuff affected him in his position of power. Now he's worried, and he's got the resources to do something about it.

I find it interesting that Garibaldi is able to find Sheridan's father when Clark's people can't. I think it tells us something about medical privacy laws in the Babylon 5 universe It's also interesting that there's only the one member of Sheridan's family anyone ever cares about. What about his mother? What about the sister who even had her own episode (well, not really. But still, it's a well-established character).
