Re: Good new article about B5

Yes, 'The Gathering' was always titled that. The new edit was called (iirc) the TNT Special Edition.

The writer seems a bit confused here, too:
Sleeping In Light was not originally intended as the season - or the series - finale. It was actually filmed at the end of season four. Since Straczynski wasn’t sure if there would be a fifth season, Sleeping In Light was meant to serve as either the fourth or fifth season finale.
Yes, it was definitely always supposed to be the series finale.

Nice article, thanks. Will read it more in depth later on.

"You know, I used to think that life was terribly unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair? If all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~~Marcus Cole
