Re: Rewatching Babylon 5.

Infection

First episode filmed. It shows.

So, Dr Franklinís archeology professor shows up. Dr Franklin is a medical doctor. He had an archeology professor? I guess it must have had something to do with an elective or part of the xeno- part of Franklinís xenobiology specialization. Still, it feels awkward.

Living technology. At the time this was written, I guess the idea was more of a revolutionary one? I canít now imagine someone in the future being surprised that a more developed species would have such tech. It does lay the groundwork for the idea though, whichíll come back with the Vorlons and Shadows.

The actual being taken over by the technology though is cringe worthy acting, as is Sinclairís rage acting while trying to piss it off.

The music is especially silly in this episode. Part that just played reminds me of first season Buffy The Vampire Slayerís music.

The why-we-have-to-go-to-the-stars speech at the end though is nice. Still, itís hard to slog through the rest to get to it though.
