Re: The Illusion of Truth - Worst Episode?

What I enjoy about this episode is just how twisted and plausible the alternative scenario presented by ISN is - and just when you think it can't get any worse, it does.

But as an episode it is kind of static. Literally actually, since the cameras are locked in place for much of it. And unlike And Now for a Word, which I do enjoy a lot, nothing particularly exciting happens while the reporters are on B5. So I think it works better on paper than it does as drama (IMO Deconstruction of Falling Stars, also directed by Stephen Furst, suffers from similar problems). This one basically serves as backdrop to what's going on, and sets up what's going to happen later, but doesn't do much in itself.

My vote for worst episode of all goes to Learning Curve, and my favourite is Shadow Dancing.
