Re: EpDis: Confessions And Lamentations

I like this episode, I give it a B. Watching Franklin struggle to save the Markab is compelling, and you feel the danger that Delenn Lennier are putting themselves in. The only problem is that you don't get a feel of how big a disaster this is. An entire sentient species has been wiped out completely, but I don't think we get the scale of the disaster, with the exception of the brief news report at the end on ISN.

JMS said at the time that it wasn't an AIDS allegory, but based it on what happened with rhe Black Death. But with the way AIDS is wreaking havoc across Africa, and the way people there are seem to be ignorant of it, maybe its becoming more and more of an AIDS allegory. I don't know, just a thought.
